Really--instead of ST, the Focus would be a better STX car if you go full-out to the rules.

The LSD and the ability to run wider wheels and tires help a heavy-ish car. I think a fully prepped 2.3 in STX could make some noise...as could a SVT.

The top STX cars are really no faster than the top ST cars Nationally--and there is no doubt that an STX Focus would beat an ST Focus if both were at max-prep...so even if you look at overall/PAX finishes--STX is a better choice.
