I'll have to check the time slip....something like 2.4-2.5.....

it was funny too, first time I've went to the track in like....2 years, and first race I tree'd the other guy with a .540 light.....too bad it was a cobalt SS....lol
At least my RT's still aren't too bad...got a 0.540, 0.555, 0.567, and a 0.594......plus I redlighted about 4 times.....the rest were just average...

Time seems about right in that case, maybe a little high. What I typically hear is that a pretty well nailed launch should net a 2.2x 60', and that every 0.1s by 60' is worth .2 at the trap. Given those rules of thumbs, it makes the car a mid-16s Focus. I've seen a bit quicker posted up, you at a bit of elevation?

Those reaction times are a bit sleepy but that will get better with time. Judging by you 60's, are you just popping the clutch at 4000 or something because I smell wheel spin.

Welcome to my world. I spin like a rwd Mustang.....and there is no reason for it. Not like I got loads of hotdogs aka horses under the hood.

Next time, I am going to take out the 50lbs of amp/subs...and my spare tire, lol......Imma moron I know.

I hit the New England Dragway in Epping NH for street night last friday night. I only got three runs in, it was pretty busy and I was the sole Focus out there. I represented for us all as best as my NA 2.3 duratec will do. My mods are listed below, CAI and cat back (Borla and K&N baby) and SVT suspension which must help plant my power down. I call my hood the stable, it's where 160 horses run free.

So I hit 16.19 @ 86 MPH. It was a nice cool night, great track conditions they said. IT was my first run of the night, also my frist track run ever. What a blast.

I had a 17.5 sec with my 225 Lb. buddy in the car with my, then a 16.6 with some slippage of the clutch getting back onto the gas in third. I finished the run in third gear, was right at the end of third when I crossed the line. Get that cat-back (preferably Borla) and you'll shave a few more tenths off.

Best 1/4 mile: 16.19 @86 MPH
