My first 1/4mile runs- Stock 00 ZX3 5spd 4/2/10

Hi

This was my first time at the track running a Focus. Although I'm posting this in the DRAG RACING section, I wasn't really racing. I was just getting some base runs. It was my 2000 ZX3 5spd zetec with 68,000miles on her, 100% stock from airbox to tailpipe, spare tire & all including a FULL tank of gas(only 16miles on the tank). Had a lot of Fun! Ran it 3 times. I'm car #20 on the timeslips.

Run #1 (interesting note: the guy I ran against was driving a 2008 Focus 2.0L Duratec Automatic, He never ran faster than a 17.0 all night)

60ft- 2.646
330ft- 7.134
1/8et- 10.860
1/8mph- 66.46
1/4et- 16.849
1/4mph- 81.39

Run #2 (fastest run)

60ft- 2.620
330ft- 7.096
1/8et- 10.813
1/8mph- 66.41
1/4et- 16.778
1/4mph- 81.58

link: http://i156.photobucket.com/albums/t...g?t=1270415589

Run #3

60ft- 2.599
330ft- 7.126
1/8et- 10.861
1/8mph- 65.97
1/4et- 16.884
1/4mph- 80.75

Average time was 16.837.

I think you'll be surprised at what little mods can do. I've only made 3 passes in my car and my best was a 15.3. It doesn't really take much to wake these cars up. Free flowing panel air filter, full exhaust and maybe a tune and you're close to a 15's. Drop some weight and you can be a little quicker. Add good suspension and even better.
Not fast by any means but taking almost a second of the 1/4 time does make the car more fun.
