I think next year I am going to stick with the SVTF (was originally going to go Boxster or 968), and see just how far I can push in GS. Konis, R-comps, lightweight battery, lightweight rims... I think I could post some top-5 overall times, and kick some Z06 butt...
I am going to do the same. I got the Koni's in front this year and will get the rear ones and wheel/R-comps in Jan. I ended up 2nd in my region with 1 win and many 2nd place runs in GS and a best of 8th place in pax (of 77). With the new rubber I will be able to chase down the pesky MCS that has run away with GS here.

Good luck on the road scene!!! I can only dream of doing something like that. I do plan on a trip to a roadcourse here for my SVTF. The 1st open track day at Hallet is on my birthday and I told my wife I will be there. Gotta love the support!
Never run out of traction, real estate, and ideas at the same moment.


WARNING!!! The surgeon general has announced that AUTOCROSS is more addicting than CRACK!!!

Carrera26...awesome results and modisty to boot!

I was hoping some of the SVT focus brothers had posted some good results in autocross events across the nation!

I am not saying this to steal your thunder, because everyones experience is different, but to share with you what I managed this year to place in a stock SVT with R compounds;

1st overall regionally
1st GS regionally
1st GS locally
4th overall locally

I know we all faced different competitors driving different vehicles but WOW!,the little Focus in the right hands can sure put a whooping on those "other" vehicles.

I see you are thinking of "upgrading" your SVT and I am interested to hear how it turns out as I would like to do the same.

PLEASE keep us posted as to your progress and I hope we can share in your accomplishments next year!
Just..."get er done"!
