Unhappy Track Results

Well the track didnt go so well for me tonight. Turns out I cant launch for shit. Anyway, heres the slip from my first run, were just gonna forget about the second run.

For this run i revved to about 3500rpm and floored it while dumping the clutch. Got a little wheel hope then it bogged.

R/T - 0.252
60' - 2.494
330 - 6.929
1/8 - 10.489
MPH - 68.77
1000 - 13.518
1/4 - 16.074
MPH - 87.64

dumping the clutch isnt the way to go , those times are slower than mine, you should be revving to about to 3k, then as the third to last light is lit, start easing off the clutch....

looks like you red lighted also with a .252 reaction time. Perfect reaction time is a .500 Work on your shifting and launch and you should hit mid 15's easy.

Whens the last time you went drag racing or watched it on TV??? The new perfect reaction time is .000 not .500. I rarely redlight. My shifting i think was pretty good. that 60' should have been like 2 tenths better which is about 4 tenths at the 1/4. That run should have been 15.6-15.8.

Oh i tried slowly letting out the clutch the second time. I dont knwo what happened. Im looking at my tach all of a sudden up near 7000 and not really going anywhere. really ****ed that run up 2.8 something 60'

I have to agree dumping the clutch I have learned is a no, no at the track, makes for a horrible 60 ft time, easing off the clutch at launch does help stop the bog (be careful stock clutch is very sensitive), but the Foci SVT is just not a good launching car, I believe due to the tall 1st gear, this is my opinion only though, since you do not have TC you dont have to worry about that, I have TC and have had better times running with it on, but dont fret too much your times will improve with practice.

I also have a ZX5 and with exhaust and ORP only (only have 1/8 tracks local) best time was a 10.22, since adding the mods best time has been 10.08 both with T/C on, since I have read of other SVTF running in the nine's with less mods than mine, I got a lot of work to do at the track. I will have to say this I wonder sometimes if the weight differance really does effect the performance on the track with the ZX5 compared to the ZX3 SVT? Who knows.

Best of luck too you, work on your reaction time, shifting and launch you should improve your times.....oh and advoid the rev limiter, it is a nasty little thing.

(Edit note: If a perfect light was .000 at the track you raced then you had a good time, I believe that most of us are used to running with the perfect reation time starting at .500, this is I believed used at most tracks.)

any gain you'll get in slippin the clutch in the 60' will be at the expense of your clutch. daily drivers remember. i have all the guys dump. 3,5k in an svt is low, try 4k and change in 100rpm increments. no changes in tire psi....dont do it. 7k shifts. you will get 15s no prob. just drop it, you'll do fine. oh btw, no flatshifting (power shiftin is what these kids call it i believe).

good luck, keep at it. and most important other than have fun....

....LOG EVERYTHING (get a log book from the track (loox like a magazine)), keep the records, it will help immensly.

R&DSVTZX5, man I saw what you said about running in the 9's and got all kinds of excited, I don't know how I missed the part about it being 1/8 instead of the 1/4.

Ahhhhh, that would be a dream come true.........but not with this Focus.
I have read on other forums of some racers getting their cars in the upper 9's and mid to low 15's on 1/4, if I could run a 10 flat I would be happy, the car is just a horrible line launcher tried everything TC on, TC off by push button, TC off by fuse pulled, just no luck .....Here in good old Alabama we only have state wide like only 2 maybe 3 1/4 tracks, 3 hour drive to the closest one for me. This is again just my opinion but I believe you can utilize the most out of the SVTF on a 1/4 track.

I don't have t/c on mine. The closest track to me is about an hour and a half, but they are talking about moving the municipal airport in my town to a different location. I'm thinking if that actually happens, someone should really take advantage of what is now the current airport and make a strip there. There's quite a bit of rice here, and I wouldn't mind taking some of them on in a safe place. Of course it's really close to a lot of residential housing so there probably would be some complaints about noise.

Someone would complain, this always happens. By the way what do the voices say to you about a future SC Focus from Ford?
