I am jealous. I cant wait to get into autocross! I have drag raced and road raced... well, not sanctioned road racing. I think the autocross will rule. Auto cross is like bracket racing. Brings the driver to the forefront but doesnt require tons of money.
Each places demands on the car. Just different ones. Autocross on the suspension, tires and brakes. Drag racing on clutches, trannies, tires and if your fast enough, brakes. Ford really didnt design the focus for any of it. It is my opinion though, the car is more suited for an autocross event.
I also think autocross and road racing place more demands on driers and their abillities.
My car may not be "Fast and Furious" but it is "Quick and Aggitated!"
