pcfxer: You suck at driving... and mis-shifted like a rook lol.
16 is really slow for that kind of power in that slow of a car. I'm at 14.9
in my Sentra SE-R Spec-V (200hp/180lb-fts NATURALLY ASPIRATED).
2SecondToNone: guessing by those gear changes i would say 10 minutes?
MuteLunatic: 16 seconds isn't a competitor. My 2000 Neon with 130hp did that all day
stock. Then again launch the car at above idle and shift right and you'll
be high 14s in the Fiesta ST.
Chad Snow: That white Ford Farlaine is an expensive hobby. Besides expensive racing
parts getting 4 miles a gallon has to cost. Basically drag racing would be
all the car is good for. Especially with those tires and the noise the
rob lipiec: Johnny Hendricks? Lol
YTbobo4u: Got to get me one of those Doge Darts.
nismofury: 16sec quarter? Thats slow. There is nothing special about this car. Just
like the focus st the small tweaks which they could easy do on any standard
fiesta or focus does not justify the added high cost. This car is nifty but
not for the money. A civic si would blow this and the focus st away for
Matty2023: What!! I was getting 15.6 nicely with my 2.0 na fiesta st mountune 165 so
this car is slow or he cant drive which 1 is it?
wildbill13s: they are 1,2,3,4,5,6.thats their firing order. bullmilker! roll up the
window this guys an idiot!
Michael Berenis: I had to pay out of pocket for them, so im not telling. If they want to
sponsor me a free pair, id be happy to share. Sorry bro.
supercooled: Michael, what's the glasses cam you're using?
Steve Hart: You're freaking awful at changing gear... stupid americans
Microjoey02: 16s though?! :( ill keep my 13 sec fusion
Michael Berenis: Nice! Congratulations! The Fiesta ST is a great car. What I like most about
it is that it's daily driveable, but you can still take it to a track and
rip up some tires. In my opinion, I think this car is better served in
curves; but it was still fun to take it drag racing. Good job Ford! <3
RAA12586: That fiesta looks so out of place compared to everything else :D, Hey I
just bought the same car so it's good to see the 1.6 out there.
Albo Blaster: i think your video is awesome, thank you
Michael Berenis: Thanks man, I have to agree. I think its pretty cool to see this video,
because many people who buy the Fiesta ST will be first time racers at the
drag strip with this car. So they can expect a similar experience, time,
etc. Drag racing is a completely different surface than what I'm accustom
to. There is no slip at all, and with a smaller turbocharged motor that
effect is amplified. Thanks for watching, cheers.
Doogie H: Michael, every car guys pickle is bigger than the next one. Especially in
Biflo,FL. You did fine for a beginner. Drag racing doesn't mean crap.
halow4: But on another note, damnnn that ford fairlane @ 8:00 took offffff lol.
halow4: This car could probably do mid 15's with a good driver trapping near 90
Pauliepsi: Doesn't make much sense, I owned a focus SVT 02, with less Whp, and a very
similar gear ratio, that weighed more and used to run low to mid 15s all
scterka: Love the video. I was dumbfounded how that Mopar was launched like it was
shot out of a canon. Awesome!
Michael Berenis: Literally my first time drag racing on a track. My experience is circuit
and rally of which i hold fastest lap time at sebring for this car. See my
other videos :)
Kevin Duby: i am thinking like a 3500 or 4 k dump would be perfect. get a cobb ap at it
will really go with launch control
ChokolateSushi23: Lol @ the "patented Ford 1-2-3-4-5-etc.." firing order comment what an
Mike Bawakami: Weak sauce. Take it to the track not the drags.
henchicken1: Your trap speed shows you could be in the low fifteens with a better launch!
dre5491: When you launch rev it up to about 2500-3500 rpm which is the sweet zone on
most fwd cars, slip the clutch more and not dump it, also when you go to
line up drive around the wet box if you're not going to do a burnout. The
water honestly does make your tires a little more slick and you can shave a
few off that way.
TayGi777: ADVICE: I'm a drag racer for past 25yrs. Common mistake "new" guys make is
trying to leave the line like a race car. TIP: Do not "waste" first gear
with high RPM 'clutch dump' launch. First gear is your LOWEST RATIO and is
there to MULTIPLY available torque & MOVE WEIGHT from a stop. Let 1st
ACCELERATE the car. Use all of this gear. Leave the line at an RPM that
allows some boost and prevents engine bog. But do not BOG, or SPIN. Walk
the line in middle of both for best ET. Thanks for your video!
1859ddd: Okay I respect this but they really need to make it faster out of the box!
My 1997 Subaru Outback Sport with the only thing done to it was exhaust ran
16.5s with a little N/A ej22. I say Ford needs that car to be running like
14.5-15s stock. But that being said the ST is a turbo car and has lots of
room to improve. I'm looking forward to seeing what mods come out for it
and what people do with it. I'm not completely sold on it yet.
ilovestorm10213: thanks :) might save it for my WRX ill upload it when I get enough for the
down payment lol
ilovestorm10213: hey man did you ever get that sticker out yet? and I saw that video with
you attacking the track lol making it chirp through 4th :) keep up the
Michael Berenis: Yep! Sending it today :)
Michael Berenis: First ever quarter mile pass for the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST! How fast will it
run? Watch and find out!
Michael Berenis: lol I spanked the el camino even missing third gear but then you're right..

ilovestorm10213: lol the EVO, and what happened to my monkey??
TheDustyaman: Cant wait to see some mods and tuning and what it would run
Michael Berenis: Yea its way closer for me but they kept getting rained out
fcastellanos1: the fiesta st is a 15-second flat car in the 1/4mi
basiccable19: Oh yeah that sucks what other cars do you run there?
Martin monjarassi: slow poke and was this you 1st time at a track to ask bout the windows

Michael Berenis: Yep my first pass ever. I usually race on "real" tracks; ie tracks that
ilovestorm10213: oh any time man I love the videos! keep up the amazing work
Em12k: man i still wonder how you got into the car testing business... seems

Michael Berenis: Yea im going to try and make it.. Its tough though i am really busy. Ill
either bring my evo or fiesta st... Which one lol?
1badmirada: I thought that it was odd considering your SN but there are plenty of
people online who might not know that is true..who drive Mustangs.
hockeyfan220: You going to Fl2k?
Michael Evans: I love how the second time they cherry picked u to go against a 10 second
SuperchargedMustang5: I know I was being sarcastic I own a 5.0
