pkolator I want to get a more "curb friendly" downpipe made and match the exhaust to it, 3". Also, put in the 22mm FSB I've had laying around for over a year, move the battery to the trunk (its way too packed under the hood), front lower ball joints, and install some proper catch cans for the valve cover and PCV.

And if all goes well, cut and flare the front fenders. I need a bigger contact patch up front

The surprising result was the Mazda 3 in the trophies, I was following his build thread, didn't seem too extreme... And to have the heavy hatch do that well, motivates me to work on getting my focus to that prep level.
Yeah our region is pretty sick across the board. Dont forget Hodges in the FSP Neon that was top 10 in Nationals 2 years ago. The thing all those cars have over the foci is the weight. Im just not sure we can compete.

Maybe STX is a better class to try in general? Im gonna try H-Stock and see how I can do Nationally next year.

My codriver/owner drove a mild FSP neon at an event last year--he's clearly got the 'want' now to move up.

theheat i put a harness in my car with stock seats... makes a world of difference!!!

it does the job for autox but is not safe for street use, but i still have the stock seatbelt...

ill have to take pics...

its just a $25 ebay 4 point harness, 3 point would have been better but i didnt want to sink the money into it... the lap belt has clip on attachments that i clipped to the stock belt mounting point on by the door and on the seat frame by the console... and then i found a nice little hole that fit the bolt perfectly under the rear seat and just bolted both straps into the same hole and tightened it down... and the shoulder straps just feed through the bar in my head rest... i leave it in and it doesnt bother me when i dd...

ill take pics..
