19TbirdSC91 I plan on starting autocrossing soon with mine (looks identical to yours) except i have a short throw and tires on wheels that don't come on a focus so i think that takes me out of GS... oh well, i just want to have fun

Peregrine Great pics and I would love to take a run on that course sometime!

WD40 The plan as of right now is to just drive the car as is, and keep running in G-stock.
Great plan, and even more importantly, smart plan!
And, kudos to you for realizing why this car is loved so much.
I'm glad you're enjoying it like it's meant to be.

Cajun Boy876 That course didnt seem to have to many turns. Looked like cars that are quicker on the straight away would have done alot better.

kafn8ed Honestly, I didn't want the yellow either. I didn't want the Euro package. Or the winter package. Or the sunroof. Or the Audiophile 9006, and sub. But I got a nice deal on it, was treated like gold at the dealership I got it from, and really wanted an SVT. I'd been looking around at cars for a bit, and decided on the SVT, and knew from lurking around on FF that there were only around 14k made. So I figured I couldn't be too picky. Besides, it grows on you. And the seats, even being leather, are wonderful. Especially if you're a little skinny guy like me.

Autocross fun w/ pics (lotta pics) and vid

This past weekend the Blue Ridge Region SCCA had a Rookie School and auto-x. School was Sat and the 'cross was Sunday. I had a blast. I've auto-xed twice before, but not since 2003ish. Since I just picked up a focus SVT 3 weeks ago, I decided to take the school. This was a brilliant decision, if I say so myself. I was able to learn the car a bit before the actual event. And I learned that the tires that were on it when I bought it need to go away. Far away. Actually, since I'd gotten them to slide on the street without even pushing the car hard, I already knew that. But I have a better understanding now of why this car is so loved. The plan as of right now is to just drive the car as is, and keep running in G-stock. At least the rest of this season. Of course, after seeing the price on Massive, I just had to pick up the Saleen suspension kit. It's just sitting there in the box waiting for me.
Enough talk. Pictures, and short vid.
First, link for the official BRR pics... http://www.flickr.com/photos/2288875...7604743679716/




And I got a surprise. Another SVT showed up.








Washed up a bit and home again.



W/ my new (to me) stock 16" focus wheels, soon to be sporting winter grippage. Currently sporting the ever stylish worn to the cords Victoracers.



And a vid...
