That is a bummer.
Do you have Traction Control?
At least, you can test that out!

BTW, moving to the SVT Owner's Lounge.

PS, send some of that white stuff this way if you could.
Been pretty s u c k y this year for snowfall.

I thought you could flash it back to stock when you wanted to, not that you would want to.

well yeah you can flash it back to stock . . . but I want to take it out and do some before and after 0-100 runs TODAY.

I don't want to wait a week for this state with weather more indecisive than a PMSing 17 year old on prom night to give me the right conditions =/

but hey, like Doug said - at least I'll be able to test the traction control killer, and bonus, I won't lose any of my tires in the process :)

sct is a company that makes a tuner for the svt focus. it allows you to essentially backup and replace the focus computer with a program that makes the car more powerful/faster than what it is in stock condition. I would consider it the quintessential mod for the SVTF.

do a search in the forums, you'll find plenty of info on it.

I got my SCT from hypnotic last week but ran into a snag, looks like a bad SCT unit. Not Waynes fault at all, and he has been helpful but since he is in the middle of moving, a replacement may not ship until the second of March
