prolly one of the fastest tracks on the east coast.

Lets put it this way. Over the weekend i went up to beaver springs dragway and my best time was a 13.2 at 108 with a 2.3 60ft.
Cecil is super fast. i got a stock zx3 running 15.6 at 86.

Damn, Ford really did it right this time. That kind of power from a stock Mustang around $30k is crazy. Thats what stock Vettes were running just a few years ago.

Now you have me curious about Cecil!
How many runs do you get in? Is it absolutely packed?
I see T&T is from 9AM-4PM!

WOW. I am amazed.
I just drove a new 5.0 for the first time a few days ago (also with the 3.31's and a manual) and it was seriously fast. With even a 3.73, intake, tune, and some drag radials you'd be deep into 11's. This is an amazing car.

I usually hit cecil on wed. or friday nights.
I will be there this friday Nov. 5th. Im pretty sure its the last night of the season.


And yes i was also amazed when i hit the 12.7 at the track. these cars are a whole lot better then previous mustangs its insane.
I picked up a programmer (SCT) with a custom tune from American Muscle so im looking for consistan low to mid 12's this friday but its gonna be cold so it will be tough to hook.
Car now turns out to 7400 and makes power the whole way there. It has CRAZY top end.

Okay be honest here Fi: Your old focus vs. new mustang, which would win a race and which do you prefer?

I would think the significant weight advantage of the Focus (while maintaining virtually identical power figures) would weigh heavily in the little grocery getter's favor. BUT I can't imagine 364whp going through some skinny little tires on a FWD car could hook well in most situations. (Thinking more along the lines of driving around on some public roads than with slicks at the VHT prepped strip).
Overall weight, weight balance, drive wheels, tire size and width, etc... etc.... there are many factors that play into this. What do you think about all of them combined?

(My guess is that I'd prefer the stang. Driveable, reliable, has grip at speeds under 60mph, etc...)

well.
The focus would have given it to the mustang how ever it wanted. dig, roll. wouldnt matter.
The focus actually got better traction that the mustang does becasue i can run low boost (12psi) in second gear then swtich to hi boost (24psi) in third and it wouldnt spin at all from a 40 roll. However. the Focus felt like it had no stability over 100mph and hoestly when ur pushing 364 wheel with the nose of the car facing the sky at 100mph it gets real scary and sketchy.
No doubt in my mind i can run 11.80's all day withthe focus on a slick.

Now the Mustang is a MUCH more fun car to drive. Nothing like hitting 2nd and getting a little sideways. Now with the tune and it being a bit colder i lose traction and go sideways when i hit third at 75 mph...not fun when u dont expect it...
I was a little suprised with the lack of traction these cars have stock. even when i got it when it was in the 70s at night it would spin when i hit second and somtimes spin rolling into first. And launching the car...well iv only gotten 2 good legit launches out of it since iv got it. And iv launched it prolly 20 times lol. I just cant find that sweet spot.

Also the mustang has GREAT control at higher speeds and is an all around easier car to drive.

Even tho the Focus was MUCH faster i would choose the Mustang just because its so much mroe fun to drive...lol
