I want to ask you something; if you are looking for a DD/beater why do you want to modify this one as well? I thought that was what the other 2 cars where for? (modifying)

If I were looking for a beater car I would find something I could care less about while it gets good gas mileage & is reliable not something else I want to modify.

Kinda weird, but after 3 days of driving other cars (drove the Fiesta to work Tuesday, the Jetta on Wednesday and the Fiesta all day yesterday on the trip to DC) then hopping back in the Focus today.... the thing suddenly feels like a beast. Holy hell.....

Well... I took the Focus out on drag slicks tonight for the first time and got a new personal best.

I need to work with the slicks some more before I vs D. I need to figure out the best tire pressure and best rpm to launch at. I only got two passes in tonight at Cecil due to two cars blowing up and it taking 45 min for cleanup on each. This was the best of the two passes...

I am car #347

R/T: .202
60ft: 2.092
330: 5.655
1/8: 8.548
MPH: 84.32
1000: 11.073
1/4: 13.205
MPH: 105.81



^ This was my first pass on the slicks so it was purely experimental. I had them at 15psi and still barked them off the line. I have feeling once I get the tire pressure set just right and figure out a good launch point, I could see a 13.0 or even that beloved 12.9 in my future! I'd say that's quite a feat for a stock D20 motor.
