I was just thinking, I had a friend in high school in the '70s with a Baracuda with a big hemi in it that did 14's stock.

A Toyota Rav4 runs a 14.7 1/4 mile. Lots of cars are quick nowadays.

Yeah, wouldn't that be a kick in the pants. "Dude, that chick in the SUV just beat your ST!!"

Yeah, that's the V6 Rav4 AWD. According to some of this: remove the back seat, spare tire, and hit the 13's in a Rav4!!!

I call complete B.S. on this. intake and exhaust do almost nothing to an SVTF. Most SVTFs with the JRSC had a hard time trying to get 13s.

EDIT: Assuming you're referring to NA Foci
D23 Foci hit 14s easily with mild bolt ons. A buddy here in Michigan ran 14.5 with intake, exhaust, header, cams, and a tune. (The car was NOT tuned for the cams.) He also put down 180whp on the same setup.

Kyle... I'd have to see if my old roommate has the slips... She was a member on here until she sold her SVTF. 1FSTFOC... You can look her up!

Slips aren't proof, because who knows what's done to the car. She was spraying or boosted to hit 13s in an SVTF. Or the car was stripped to under 2000lbs. There is no other way a 2500+lbs car with maybe 150whp is running 13s unless the drag strip is down hill.

You don't have to be a douche man... I know what she had on the car and I was at the strip when she did it. No need to get hurt cause it was a girl.

Anyway, stay on topic

Douche? Sounds like you are butt hurt, I don't care if she's a girl, where the hell did that come from? My point is that unless the car was fully stripped or boosted, you are lying or she was, or you read the wrong side of the time slip. That's all. The car can't defy physics.

1000 ft strip maybe? That would actually make sense. I've never run my SVTF (don't plan to) but I figured it was a high 15 car.

The 1000 ft strip makes almost perfect sense. What drag strip was this at?
