Tickford, save your cash and ditch that S-AFC, it will not work on our cars.

Yeah man 20s seems a bit high. I havnt done an actuall recorded one maybe i should but i found like a closed empty road thats 500m long (1/4 mile is 400) and i did that in what seemed like less than 20 sec. and i was goinng 120km/h i think but next time ill get someone to time me. but that seems like quite a long time to me.

hey focaltech- the SAFC will work with any car- the VAFC will only work with vtec cars adn the avcr will only work with turbo cars- the safc has been know to increase whp by 15-20% and wtq by 8-14% on almost any car the focus as well- i mean i aint try to argue with you here but from all i have heard about it it is totaly worth it- not just what i heard from when i asked an Apexi guy but from other guys at the track- adjusting my a/f ratio doesnt sound like a bad idea- but i could be wrong u guys tell me- but i got it for nothing pretty much cause of where i work and i am going to put it on and see what it can do (dyno run today with all my new stuff) if it isnt worth it then oh wel it sits there and looks pretty and if it does a good deal of work then i tell everyone to get one.

I guess this may be somewhat off topic, but I figure a whole bunch of people would want to answer this. What seems to get the quickest 60 ft time...riding the clutch at 5 or 6 grand with minimum wheel spin, dropping the clutch at 3500??? What seems to work the best?? After 60 ft, the only thing that changes time is how quickly one shifts. I want quickness off the line.

alot of the 60 ft is traction, I didn't get mine down till I got my bfg drag radials and my best 60ft is still only 2.12 and my 1/8 is 9.97. The 60 isn't bad since my dads drag car only pulls 1.75 or so, I can't really remember. I rev up to around 5000 and drop the clutch but with my tires I get no wheel spin

I can usually keep my 60ft times in the 2.2's to low 2.3's by feathering out the clutch just a bit. But thats with street tires.

okay after the setup as i mentioned it took some time to get the feel of the new power added - slipped up in my 60ft times and 1/8's but best run of 16.1 wasnt bad i guess
