shoot i bet yours would do it a hell of alot better than mine. you could probably do it in 5th. the thing is tho... you dont have to go wide ass open to have fun doing it. i just got carried away and thats what messed me up. you can cut donuts nearly as fast as i was doing turning 2500rpms in 1st. you wouldnt do anymore harm to your car than you would from doing a U-turn. sticking the pedal to the floor is what will screw you up.

Most of the focuses run a 5 to 6in back spacing

hehe im still waiting to see a good video of your monster making a pass. but i agree with this. once you start pushing the 60ft times into sub 2 second you are gonna start breaking stuff like axles on a regular basis. ease the car out of the hole and then roll hard into the gas.

and now after saying all of that i feel like a hypocrite. i dont think ive ever in my life just drove the car out of the hole real easy like unless it was an accident....

lol ik ive never eased it out of the hole lol heres my theory if it breaks ill beef it up if the tranny breaks ill add gear cuffs and stronger gears till it can handle the power. cant see spending all the money into my engine and not giving the tranny a proper treatment :)
