your 60' foot a little slow to me. Did you try left foot braking or using the e-brake while giving a little gas? That would def let you launch a little better. Also the zetec is pretty gutless in the low end with a auto. My SPI with a manual feels like it gets up faster than my zetec.

Rims and tires maybe? I drop a whole sec last time I was at the track by just switching to my old bald 15's. Of course the track was slick that night and those were the only two runs I was able to make. Also you are still running the stock mani and cat? If so then right there your pretty chocked down. You have a lot more to be gained right there. Also if you don't have a tune that'll hurt a little too. The autos when tuned help the tranny shift much better. I would also hold that auto agisnt the stall as best I could. I would also probably shift it myself but if you don't have a tach that's hard to do. Oh and can't forget anything JDM will automaticly make a snail. J/k just kidding
