I've tried that in a rental Focus and it didnt seem any faster. I guess you should just do a brake stand prior to launching.silent said:is there any tips if i want to race a focus. like would it shift gears if its in first gear when it readlines or stuff like that.
get the 5 spd. just bein honest, atx isnt much of a strip terrorizer. if u want performance, get the 5 spd, so much more u can do. with an atx, u either build the tranny, turbo it, and run 13-12s. or u dont build it, do all the bolt ons u can, and run a high 15.silent said:is there any tips if i want to race a focus. like would it shift gears if its in first gear when it readlines or stuff like that.
You don't let them try?SVT4ME said:118 huh? That's not too shabby. A stock non-SVT Focus tops out in the 108 ballpark. I have students who see that 120mph speedo in the Neon and they're like "yeah but I bet this thing can't even go that fast, right?" I guess it can get pretty close. 
[hihi] If I did I'd get fired pretty quickly - the car has the school's name and phone number plastered all over it. Believe me when I tell you that people do call and complain about things they saw us doing out on the roads. I did actually have one student a long time ago who tried her best to see how fast that car would go - I had to remind her that she was never going to pass the test if she couldn't even keep the car out of triple-digit speeds on the freeway!!Infra3sv said:You don't let them try?
