:TRACK: Man I Suck

Well I took the Focus to the track for the first time last night. It was not pretty. I have no mods so I pulled the fuse for the TC. It was about 40degrees out and I could not get the car to hook up to save my life. My best time was a 16.375@85.76 with a 60 of 2.431. My worst was a 18.69@84.69 with 60 of 3.349. Everyone was saying how bad the track was and that it was a bad night for it to be my first time out. It was the last street night of the season, so I'll have to wait til next year to improve my times. I guess i'll have all winter to practice. Anyone wanna throw some tips out for me? FYI I had a new set of Pzero Neros on the car. I did manage to get four runs in so that was cool.

SVT's are tricky to launch, but everyone comes up with their own way. I would tell you my way but I dont have one, since everytime I've raced my SVT my clutch just slips. Did you go to Epping? I was gonna go up yesterday but I had to work, and I would've called out if I knew it was the last street night of the season. Anyway, work on that launch and murder the track when it opens back up.

Yeah I went to Epping. The track was bad . One guy said he normally ran 10's and was only running in the 11's and 12's because he couldn't get it to hookup.
