I got those tire because of auto-x i do. The ECU was messed with by my tuner and me with a SCt tuner.I could of hurt the tune a little wiht me messing with it. I was trying to get more top end out of the car. The tune is more taward me having better topend. Im working on a record Maxton Mile. Thats why i went with the F2 header. people said it was good for top end power. The car really isnt good for 8th mile. I want to see 9s in the 8th. Im also looking for 120mph at Maxton Mile.

man ill tell ya, its a hoot and a half. the focus at the drag strip is always fun but you cant expect to really beat much of anything unless you have something up your sleeve like boost or a fairly large shot of giggle gas. i already have the latter which isnt even hooked up and im about to lay hands on a JRSC. i plan on doing some piggybacking if you catch my meaning. anyhow i still like dragging the focus for the hell of it even though i usually dont do much better than 10.0 if even that well. i dont know when lawn mower racing will be in mooresville next but ill be sure to let you know. its a pretty well spent day to go to the drag strip and then go watch lawn mower racing afterwards. nothing like watching a freaking lawn mower drift around a track

Nice. My focus only does 10.3s on a good day in the 8th. Im wanting to hook some spray up, but I burnt up my clutch the last time i went to the track. So i need to get one before i do that step. Next time i go to Maxton Mile in April you should come and bring you car. It also when HotRod does there Top Speed Event. Its a good time, and as long as you have the governor taken off you can see what it can do in a mile. Alot of people say "oh my car does this in a mile", but have no proof to show. At least when i say mine did 115.01mph i have papers showing. Many people cant say they have run a full mile. So its cool to be able to. Well atleast for me it is.
