Rally and decals

Anyone have a lead on where I can get body decals for my Focus? I have a 2007 ZX3 and would like one of the full size Ford decals you see of the side of some race prepped Focus'.

Also, anyone have a link to what it would take to turn a Focus into a rally prepped car?

well, first off, a real WRC focus will run you about $245k, so it's gonna cost ya.

being reliastic, for a regular rally focus, i'd say you're looking at around $15k mininum. That covers safety equippment, lighting, nav systems, and base suspension upgrades. Most rallies in the US have strict rules on mods. Most will limit you to a certain amount of power, and suspension changes may be regulated.

A normal rally prepped car will have a roll cage, fire exstinguisher system, and tools/spares in the back.

The stuff you see on TV is so far out of your reach, don't bother, lol.

You can make a very competent rally car out a stock Focus.

Mine is a 2006 ST sedan, and the only mods I have are some Silverstar lights. I've won several local rallies/rallycrosses in mud, snow, gravel.

I'm running a D23 engine, putting 151hp, 145tq down through the MTX75 transaxle. A very potent combination. Unfortunatley, the only saftey equipment I have is a helmet and exstinguisher.

heres the end result of a rallycross a few months ago: Second place.



Theres another memeber on here in ohio, who does rallies. For the love of God, i can't remember his name, though i talk to him all the time. I think.

Also, i think those decals are available through Ford Racing, i dont remember, but i know there is a company that sells em. Word to teh wise though, your car will attract the attention of ever cop in the county.

Sure it could!! If the police were to pull you over you could just hammer it down a dirt path at 80mph and they could never catch you.
