First track night with the SVT

So I haven't been to a 1/4 mile strip since high school so my driving wasn't to great. I know what I did wrong and I'll work on that. Plus it was the first time I had driven in with F46 pulled and I wasn't sure how much spin I would get. Other than that I do have a bad O2 sensor(wanted to run it with a bad one just to see how much improvement I would see with a new one). As far as mods its just got a magnaflow set up and a AEM CAI. It was pretty humid but other than that conditions are pretty good.

I actually called this one exact when asked what I would run.

First Run:
RT: .970
60': 2.430
330: 6.774
1/8: 10.292
MPH: 69.80
1000: 13.315
1/4: 15.851
MPH: 88.71

popped the clutch a bit too high

Second run:
RT: .775
60': 2.498
330: 7.022
1/8: 10.616
MPH: 68.54
1000: 13.699
1/4: 16.2
MPH: 86.43

Like I said first time to the track in a while dont be too mean.

yeah it's all in the 60 foot time. I think on average the SVt ranges from low to mid 15's so maybe a 15.8 with a bad o2 sensor isn't too bad.

Yeah I had a great time despite the fact it took them about an hour to get some oil off the track and I could have gotten a few more runs in there.

Yeah that happens sometimes one time it took them like 30 mins tto clean the track and I was next in line and there was this rich boy there in his S2000 and we both lined up after they cleaned the track. So everybody was watching us and guess what I beat him hahaha it was so great.

The Focus in WOT does not use the o2 so you shouldnt see any change from changing it for the track
