I think just removing useless weight will bring up your 60' times. If not, what RPM are you launching at, and what mods do you have?

From what I've seen on the forums with 1/4 mile slips, I think that most Foci (SVT, Zetec, Duratec, SPI) have roughly the same 60' time. It's usually after the 60' mark that depending on the engine (or modifications) that the vehicle starts to work its magic. I think that one would need to improve the torque in order to bring the 60' time down... Just my two cents

Cheers!

If you take a look at the following thread you will see that even a SuperCharged Foci gets around the 2 second mark for 60' time:

My sixty foot time is around there and I have less mods. I am spinning too, so it is possible to get lower than that. I was launching off a 4000RPM 2-step.
