Focus + Mud = Stuck.

Well, I couldn't resist. It rained today and I went trailing in my ZX3. It was really fun for about half an hour, and then I got stuck in about ankle deep mud. Luckily it was on a hill so I could roll down the hill and I got on some grass and slowly made my way up the hill to some gravel. After I got on the gravel I got moving again really easily. It was super fun, but I'm not ready to do it again anytime soon. :P

Anybody else ever off-road their foci? Stories?

off road focus, haha. Sounds like fun, but I don't think it's the right car for the job. I'm glad you got out though.

Anyone ever watch WRC on TV?

I love to watch it, those foci RS-WRC are hardcore off roaders. There are lots of ford foci too. They usually do pretty well.

I don't have a digital camera. :/ I think I'm going to try to buy one pretty soon so I can post pictures when I start modding it and everything.

And I don't know about anyone else, but I like the stock suspension more than I have in other cars. It's really pretty smooth in my car. Not much fun with the Pirelli P6's, but maybe after I get new rims I can get some better offroad-type tires to put on the stock rims so I can play in my focus. :D

Do the WRC foci that they rally in have the stock engines in them? Or do they have like V8's or something in them?

I've got to wash my car tomorrow now, it's completely covered in mud. :P

hell yea, too bad none of us have the WRC Focus to have fun rallying w/o the high chance of failure lol

all i've done with mine are gravel roads at decent speeds (there were bends so it was quite dangerous) and drifting on ice, which is just way too much fun :)
