Its possible for him to hang with them.Djblackout I raced the four door and spanked on him by two cars, we raced again and he only took it to the 1/8 mile and then put on his lights to say that he won. Hes rite about the new si's being heavy they are very heavy. Now were you racing him on the freeway or on the 1/4 mile. Because I ran one on the freeway he pulled on me but his govoner turned on and I kept on going, if you notice when we shift on the getrag trani form 2ed to 3ed and 3ed to 4th and so on it dosent seem to drop that much, I think thats because when they built the svtf's they put the mini cooper s trani in it rite, and the mini cooper s is S/C witch dosent a S/C run better in high gears, quote me if Im wrong but I think it does thats why Im just going to go S/C and call it a day.

yeppers, the focus isnt really a drag car, its a road racer. stock suspension in my SVT while i had it i went to a road racing event in the mountains probably 3 years ago now and finished 12th out of a feild of 55. 10 cars ahead of me were AWD and first place was a full on 100 grand rx-7 built to the gills that could probably run a 10 second 1/4 mile and still pull 2 lateral G's around a curve but im not bitter about it... 13.5 mile course 5 laps with a 2 mile strait stretch and the rest were ass kissing curves. God i wanna do that again but its just too damn expensive. $300 for 1 day.

WOO 1000 POSTS!!!!
