For sure. The ITR is all about the turns. I think they're a waste at a drag strip.

HRP is a pretty solid drag strip. Spent a lot of time out there.

how much gas will that save you, assuming you also took out 200+ lbs?

For MPG it may be smart to build underbody diffuser panels and blocking/taping off any cuts in the body work. Also a thinner tire, smaller wheels and if you can find even taller gearing from another model of Focus.

Actually sounds like a fun idea.

I don't think you'll be anywhere close to 6.8 with just basic bolt on parts. If you do pull it off, that's awesome. I'll guess you'll be high 7's.

Simply an optimistic guess is all it was. I could care less what my 0-60 is(= I came to terms a longgg while back with the fact that my car is a daily driver focus.... I love my focus and the focus community, but lets be honest, it is not a sports car... even the rs....

A high 15 1/4 might happen. That's not too shabby.

I'm currently saving for my next big purchase(= in 14 months I will be putting a down payment on a 2013 CTS-V sedan.. It would be sooner but I promised my fiance that when we get married in September she would get the next new car.
