: New Focus In the Area - Central AR.

Hey everyone, my name is Ryan, I'm 24 years old and I have just relocated here from Maryland.
I drive a black 02 Sedan (SPI), with a few mods, and a few more sitting in the garage waiting patiently. My favorite mod to date has been my short shifter.
I live in Sherwood off 167/67, but I work in Little Rock off I-630/430 on Chenal Parkway.
I've seen a few hot Foci around here, and thought it would be a good idea to introduce myself.
I'm hoping to get to meet a few of you soon!

Sup man. There aren't that many from Arkansas on here maybe only a handful or so. I only live about 30-45 mins for you. Welcome to Arkansas.

I live in Fort Smith with an 03 Sedan SPI. What mods do you have?

I have seen a few Foci around here - including what I thought were an inordinate number of SVT ... regardless it's good to see people active on the forum though.
I have about all the SPI mods out there, either installed or in the garage : ) Short throw shifter, injen intake, focus central tb (bdr), long tube header, custom flex ..
I haven't got an exhaust just yet - but it's up next when I get this negative camber thing worked out with my rear tires - I'm trying to buy new wheels while I'm at it, mine are junk : (
I'll probably get them from TireRack, and I'm looking @ the SVT Euro 17" from '03.

Update: Just for fun.
I've purchased my next set of wheels - Team Dynamics Racing Pro Race 1.2 (White)
I'm grabbing Yokohama AVID Hs4 tires 205/40R17 within the next two weeks as well, it's going to be sweet.
I got some adjustable upper arms for my rear tires, and the wheels are standing up straight now - for the first time ever! I love it, even if it cost me $500 to get there. Shout to John Miller Tire in NLR/Sherwood area!
Pics up as soon as the wheels go on!

Congrats on the new rims. I remember when I bought my SVT rims at FocusFest. I couldn't wait to get some tires and put them on. I then gave my ST rims to my step-mom to put on her car.

Thanks! I had that feeling at first, but theyve been sitting boxed in the garage since ... Mid December? Maybe Early December, or perhaps Thanksgiving? Ge'ez now I don't even remember, but it's been a while though! I'm getting more on buying the tires lately though, it's like I forgot about them for a minute!

i use to live in Centeral Arkansas till i moved back home to North West Arkansas. I lived in Russellville and went to school at Tech. Im orginaly from Fayetteville and felt thats where I needed to be. When i went to school at Tech this is the car that i had at the time.
now that im back in Fayetteville this is the focus i have now.
if any of you guys would like to do a G2G I can arrange one that we can do like going down the pig trail. or going to centerville to watch some drag racing when it gets warmer. I still have contact with most of the OG focus owners in arkansas. I will start using time a lil bit more. seems there are more focus guys from arkansas then there use to be.

My name is Evan and I am in NE Arkansas...I have been a member of FF for years but I never really hit up the forums unless I was buying something. I had a 2003 ZX5, but she was totaled back in 2006 during a 4-car pile-up. [mecry] I have since been through several different cars, but I still had love for the Focus...so, on the 22nd of this month I purchased a 2002 ZX3 for $1000...now the legacy continues!!! [woot]

I'm from Fayetteville, and I have an 05 ZX3. Been on some other focus forums for awhile and heard that I'd be able to find more locals on here.

They come in and out from your neck of the woods ... Just keep an eye out and someone will post up and meet with you.

Welcome! We're just down the road a bit in NLR, Lakewood area. Been here 2 yrs, retired from La. and love NLR! Driving a 2007 4-dr SES 5-spd, loved it from day 1. I have seen one other here that looked just like mine, they aren't too common... Sadly I must part with it due to hip/leg problems. [:(]

Might want to check out ARRides.com beware the site is not very partial to ricers, so saying you are, just beware.
