Somewhere in the mid 3000s is a good launch RPM. Try 3800. Could be higher. I never got to perfect it because my car has something terribly wrong with it and I can't figure it out.

Anyways, if you've got good tires you can hit 15s for sure. Just gonna take some practice to hit low 15s.

depends on how good of a drag racer you are. id say about a 15.3 ish. plus it depends on weight, tires, etc.

I was in the high 15's when my car had simuliar mods as yours (first time for me at drag racing) Keep in mind our cars were never ment to drag...they like twistys.

I was launching in the 3,500-3,700 rang

Well I havent raced my Foci t the track yet but I would say a 3500 rpm launch would be good. And if you are willing to beat your car up you could possibly get 15.0's is you powershift it.

This article was very helpful! If you take your back seats out, and your a good driver, you should be able to hit the high to mid 14s.

My prediction:

If you've never had it on the track before, 15.7.

If you've never had ANY car on a track before, 16.2.
