I have had my focus for a month now and I love it. It's no race car, but my friends want to see what she's got. So what you RPM's would you recommend launching an 03 2L Zetec with a 5 speed manual transmission. Also when do you recommend shifting?

Just have to do trial and error, but I'd start off at like 2500rpm and see how she feels from there. It may be perfect or you may need to rev higher (like 3200rpm) to get it just right. It just depends. As for shifting once you're off, 6200-6500rpms is probably a good place to shift. I wouldn't go past that.

What ever you launch at on the street the RPM maybe a little lower at the track. Street tires on the track will spin before they will on the street. On my 05 ZX3 I launched at 2200 and it seemed to give me the best 60 foot times. You will just have to go to a test and tune at the track and have some fun and play with the launching rpm's [driving]
