On a front wheel drive car, if you're not raising the inside rear wheel in a turn you are not pushing hard enough.

overall i had a blast but now i am debating on a different car, i was looking at a 90 240sx
The 240SX is not competitive in any class in autocross. Work on your driving skills in the Focus as others have suggested.
