Is there a youtube video of that, or time slips somewhere on the forum? All I've seen are low - mid 15s with bolt-ons. That'd be pretty impressive if so.

EDIT: Assuming you're referring to NA Foci

Scratch in third--not bad. don't worry--these will get MUCH faster once some bolt-ons and tuning are available.

Check out the reaction time - 2.209 SECONDS! With a good reaction time, this car will run in the 13's. . . .can't wait for mine to get here . . . .

BODA!!! My money is on it that Steeda already has a short throw shifter in the works right now.

Ours looks to be close to 20psi, but no way 23 psi. All runs were made with everything turned off. No stability and no traction control.

I believe his best run was with the worst 60ft of the 3 passes.

Reaction time has nothing to do with the 1/4 mile time. You can sit at the light for a full minute and your time doesn't actually start til your car moves forward and you'd still run the same even if you hit a perfect light. The reaction time is simply the time it takes you to break the beams and no bearing on the 1/4 mile. The ST will not run a 13 in showroom stock trim.

I guess I don't understand the point of racing such a technical car on a drag strip...

Are people really buying these for straight line speed?

I think it's more one of those, because you can ideas.

^^^^^^^^^exactly


and there's nothing wrong with running a technical car at the strip from time to time but it's more fun in the real world or onna road course.

Some people (like me) just like drag racing. Simple as that. Road coursing is fun, but it's a TON more expensive and generally a lot further away. I'm buying this as a family car that's still fun to drive.
