mid-high 15's generally. Since it's a 6spd, it varies with the driver, plus where you race it. In florida, you'll probably end up being in the low 16's from the higher temps.

I was looking at a magazine (MotorTrend I think) yesterday and they said the Focus SVT was doing something like 16.1 - 16.3 on the 1/4 mile..

it depends on the options. dave is one of the only people ive ever heard claim a 15.3 stock... without t/c and some weight loss i could see maybe a 15.5 but 15.3 would have to be a perfect launch in perfect track conditions. someone on a dif focus forum was running a 14.9 on the bottle... the bottle generally adds more than .4 of a sec if its a decent shot. but yeah. 15.5-16 seems to be what ive been hearing. i was messin with an svt on the highway yesterday and he wasnt pullin at all i jumped about half a car length on him from 50-70 he had catback on it too.

Yah, I got timeslips of the 15.3, and it was only a couple days after i bought car. But you really have to drive the sh** out of the car to get it close to that. It was a 15.3 @ like 91.7 I think.

15.3 sounds really fast for the SVT but timeslips are more accurate than speculations. Can you post these slips Dave?
