Good point. The focus is a front heavy vehicle.

A friend of mine has been doing autox for while now and he was talking about how to set up the suspension for the best handling and stability. He said he races Accords so he wouldn't know much about how to setup the focus for autox. He did make a few good points though. Would tightening up the rear suspension drastically effect the handling and stability of the car? I'm planning on getting Koni shocks and struts with income tax and looking to do something else suspension wise. Would a rear tower strut bar or rear sway bar make a big difference?
