8.5 seconds keeping the revs at 6000rpm and above with short shift double clutching about 10 quids worth of fuel in the car. all car 0-60 times are established using safe methods ie they wont push the revs too high the fuel tank is usually half full or more there are many sts that standard have more bhp than ford state and are quicker 0-60 than the figures state perhaps the cold air helped but above 3000rpm my focus seriously shifts ive left many a car embarassed, also all cars after oct 2001 were slower in top speed and 0-6,0 mine is estimated at 9.7 seconds yet the same car built after october 2001 is suddenly a second slower no idea why and the top speeds cut from 124mph to 113 or 117 i think it is as for equipment its stuff used for the race days proper equipment ill ask what it is and hope his boss isnt on here
You may wish to check your info there. The MK1 facelift (2001 onwards) 1.8 Zetec, according to my brochure here, shows 0-62 at 10.2s in 3,4 and 5 door, with top speed of 123 mph (and this figure was unchanged from the pre-facelift). ST170 is 0-62 in 8.2 and top speed 134 mph.

You'd need to be shaving a full two seconds off the book time in order to be getting the times you're claiming, which is, in my opinion, extremely unlikely from a stock 1.8 Focus with no modifications.
