Focus? All's I's see

Good joke bud.

|BWAL||i was trying to be a humorous comedian because you said 200-2004 focus and i was implying that if you found a focus from the year 200 it would probably have stone wheels and those might not be that good for racing|
|Yesterday 05:14 PM|
I'd step down to a 16x7. The weight savings are absolutely required.
The Focus has a 6 speed, none of the other cars out there have that advantage.
Aside from that, I'll be driving it, and it will be heavier than most of the other guys by a lot.
So I'm not expecting to be competitive.

|BWAL||i don't think they started making them that early but if you find one just be sure to upgrade from those stone wheels|

I think I'm actually going to build a race car.
I got to talking with one of my instructors, and he started the "Front Four" series with our local NASA group.
It's designed to be inexpensive, fairly competitive and offer more freedom than the spec cars.
It's FWD, NA 4 cylinders, as of now the top 3 guys in the series all run Integras. There are 2 Focus's in the class but none of them are SVTs.
2200lbs min class weight, your wheel HP x 17 is your minimum allowed weight, and you can run up to a 225 tire with weight penalty or a 205 without a penalty.
I've hung out with these guys and they are all best friends. My instructor gave me his phone number and some tips to start out, then told me to call him before I do anything. He said every guy out there will tell you what they have done to their cars, what has worked and what hasn't. When there isn't anything on the line, other than bragging rights, guys are more helpful.
It sounds like a lot of fun to run cheap cars in a W2W situation. I just need to find a car, I'm allocating $10k for the car ($3000 or so) with safety equipment (probably $5k, maybe a bit more), bushings, brakes, wheels and tires. A really fast set of tires is $450, a set of wheels is $500, hell even track pads are only $100. That's a far cry from the $400 I was paying for the GT350.
If I don't do it now I don't know if I ever will. As it sits I'm eligible to run time trails with these guys, but I need to run the comp school (my instructor thinks I'm ready now but I'm not confident) to get a sign off, then run 4 races with a provisional, afterwards if I don't fuck anything up too bad, I'll get a competition license which is honored by other sanctioning bodies (SCCA, FIA, WEC, Etc).

Salesman can't get it into gear. Lead technician can't get it into gear. Half an hour later lead technician finds out it needs to be key cycled. Brilliant job at the dealership.
The rotary shift dial has got to be one of the dumbest interfaces yet, and the software application of it even more so.

With Disney's penchant for cramming as many superheroes into a movie as possible and endless remakes, it's only a matter of time before we see
THE GOOFY MOVIE: INFINITY WAR
Where a disturbing live action/CGI Goofy must team up with Captain America, Wonder Woman, Iron Woman, Black Panther, and Pauly Shore, as well as some other lesser known, lesser monetized superheroes such as BigHandMan, Rocking Chair, The Atomic Anteater, and Crazylegs, to fight the evil umm...Donald Duck? and save the universe, but more importantly sell merchandise in the process.
