I would agree with coleslaststand. I think you did just fine for your first time at the track. Believe me nobody is John Force their first time down 1/4 mi.. The important thing is to start with the baseline you established and try to learn and make improvements as you get more experience and imput from others. I don't know about the Focus SVT engine but my Mach1 motor doesn't like the high temps or high humidity. The track prep can also make a big difference. Remember you should only compare times when it's the same weather and track conditions. There are a lot of people out there that never say anything about the bad time slips.....and everyone gets a slow time every now and then. Keep trying and try to find what works for your car and you. Set realistic goals with the conditions of the day and then drive the heck out of it.

I disagree on not letting any pressure out with the stock tires. 32psi will not work for me at the track on street tires. The fastest time I have run thus far was around 25-26psi, and that helped remove a good deal of wheel spin.
