Cool Went to the Strip tonight!!

When to the drag strip tonight. My best time with the Foci was a 16.11. I was hoping for a 15.90 but it was windy as hell out there. It was a great time. Went with some friends with Mustangs and TA's. The 2000 GT with bolt on's ran a 13.80, the 2003 Cobra Broke his half shaft on his 1st run and the TA ran a 14.50. I need to get that 50 shot hooked up!!

heh, if you're only running 16's I'd say you have to do a little more before you shoot some nitrous in there, but glad you had a great time at the track, I would go to one, but there aren't any near me.

I have just about every bolt on out there. I will be getting the Long Tube Race Header / Flex Pipe as well as cam gears. What kind of times is everyone else getting??

question, do you have a body kit? I mean like side skirts and nose? Cause if you do that adds weight to the car ;) but if you dont eh i guess its pretty good, now u need a turbo :)

Some how lost my drivers for the scanner but it plays out like this:
1/4 = 16.114
R/T = .551 (reaction time)
60' = 2.371
330 = 6.734
1/8 = 10.368
MPH = 67.63
1000 = 13.496
1/4 = 16.114
MPH = 84.98

I don't have a body kit or extra weight except the w/w 3 piece wing but I did forget to take out my spare tire!! I get some pretty major wheel hop off the line. If I can get that under control I think I can shave a 10th off. Top end seems to really lack. I'm use to street racing for a 300 feet or so. Go a 1/4 mile and I find there is nothing up there!

I see that you have a 70mm MAF.

Do you have aftermarket injectors ?

Is your ECU tuned to the 70mm MAF ?

I actually have removed the mass air and the injectors. They were 32lb. and they really did nothing for me. I sold both. I had anticipated getting a JRSC but decided against it. The Mass air was calibraded for the 32 lb. injectors. I will have to remove that from my list.

Seems like you should've had a better time, but I dunno, I have yet to go to the track. Out of curiosity, you say you have 2 Mach1's, what do they run?
