WD40 OK. Can I say 1 thing? Too much steering input!
Try to have all your braking done before you enter the turn.
You'll be able to get on the gas much sooner which will help exit speed,
and you won't be pushing out so far at the entrance to the turn.

WD40 Dang, good job!
We've got a couple "dirt-o-cross" as they call them, sheduled for later in the year.
Was your course dirt or gravel or a combination of both?
Dude, I DON'T want to hurt my paint with only 2,300 miles on the vehicle.
But, I suppose it's kind of like a new pair of skis....
Once you get the first few rock hits, who cares anymore?

Geezer No skid plates, no nothing, pure stock except as mentioned above. A rallycross set up per SCCA rules is designed to accomodate all street driven vehicles. The idea is to give the "taste" of rallying without destroying cars or requiring extensive car preparation. Jumps are not permitted in rallycross. If a car leaves the ground the safety steward must immediately adjust the course so it doesn't happen again. The entry fee was 25.00 for SCCA members and 30.00 for non members. The car gets a little dusty but nothing that can't be cleaned.

ltdeckard Sorry for the typo's. I'm doing this as I work...

ltdeckard Very cool. I so bad want to try rallycross, but I can't afford to do that to the Focus yet because it needs to stay a reliable comuter car. I bought it with the intention of rallying it out after it's comuting days are over anyways...

Does your Focus has skid plates underneath or do you run it without? If you do it without it must dirty up your engine compartment?
