I agree, set your nitrous cut off at least 400 rpms before your rev limiter, more is better, basically you can set it where the car stops making good power, or a few hundred RPM after that.
I start mine at 3,000, but I am on a zetec and the svt's are a bit peakier.

The auto tranny idea??? Not sure, I know my nitrous set-ups, but know almost nothing about the auto on the focus...I have seen several Ford trucks even have major tranny problems from running larger tires as the computer has issues. For that you would need someone that knows these trannies well, I think sublime has done his research on that more than I have.

I currently am setup to start spraying in first gear at 4500. This way I have time to get traction and then it hits. It shuts off at 6800 rpm. When you change to 2nd gear your RPMs do not drop below 4500 so you will continue to spray throughout. I still need to test to see what the RPMS drop to when changing to 3rd, but I do not think they will drop below 4500.

Your clutch must have been on the verge and the nitrous justm pushed it over the edge.

I am not a clutch expert on the focus. I would contact Mcnewsautomotive.com or perhaps Newedgeperformance.com and ask eith one of them the same question. They are both sponsors here on FF.
