The only time I have ever been on a track was at FocusFest08 and I did not do so well. It was a 1000 ft. track, was hot and very humid, that and I sucked at launching the car. With the JRSC/BBK and a good driver the car should go low to mid 14s.

I'm "HOPING" that w/ my JRSC and BBK that I will break into the 13's. I don't know if it will be possible, but we will see after i go to the track in the spring!! but a JRSC w/ BBK on a zetec should put you at least in the mid 14's to low 14's!!

I really think that with full exhaust, dyno tuning, and maybe some a little more work on the engine, I could get mid 14s easy. Slicks would probably also put me real close now.

I really felt like my launch could still be better as my car sits now.

what was the other car on the time slip.
The other cars time is confusing. Your 60 is better, and your MPH was faster at the end, but he was 3mph faster at the 1/8th.
I know this is irrelevant, but im curious.
Congrats on the run, a 14 sec bolt-on focus is pretty good.

It was a 2006 civic si. Intake, full exhaust, V-tec controller. I really expected more with the mods he had.
I really thought the times and especially his mph at the 1/8 was strange. He wasn't very consistent though.

That time is great. It would be a great race between your car and my Mark VIII. It runs a 14.95 at 95mph. It weights around 4000 pounds but it has the amazing 4.6L.
