The focus is now the Toy car

No longer daily driving the focus. Its my work of art now ;-P

Scheduled to be shaved, body kit hung, 3 color paint in february


I bought an Mitsu Lancer Evolution 2003 a week ago, GOD DAMN does that baby haul ass. Handles very nice, but cant hug the turns at 80 like mah foci. But a little suspension work should fix that. No big mods going to be done to the EVO besides suspension and rims, and a system.


My Focus's exterior will be completed end of february.

Then ill be finishing a few things with the engine (Turbo/supercharger/portpolished), and moving to the interior.

Paint scheme will be blue/white/racingsilver.

Interior will be all twilight blue, and some silver IE: Vents, headboard, and carpet. Tough to find seats that match, so my seats will prolly be silver/black.

People underestimate the evo. Specially some pesky neighborhood wrx owners

You're going to turbo, and supercharge it?

No, the (Turbo/supercharger) comment was that i WANT the turbo, but may settle for the supercharger because of price. If i get the turbo, i dont wanna go cheap and blow my engine, so ill spend the 6 grand to have turbo tom install and tune the car.


As far as losing power, i really cant tell, its my first FAST car, and im still relatively new to everything with cars, and the focus is what im learning everything from. Everything i know i learned from the net, and from hands on on the focus.


But the evo, definetly hawls bawls.

Thats how it is with all AWD cars, you lose more power in the drivetrain that you do with just FWD or RWD becuz youve got power going to 2 more wheels. But the Tranny on the EVO is very stout, its the clutches that people have been having problems with, a lot of people are having to replace them at 5k.


And BlueRieger congrats on the EVO Ive wanted one of those since they came out but I'm only 16 so its a little hard to buy one at this point.
