I already found a couple svt 02 in my area for around 4800$ which is reasonable i think. I hope that the svt has a good alignment range, i love my saturn because i can set the camber to -4 degrees and everything in between.
gievn that you are in Canada you only have 2 options the SVT or the ST sedan. if you want to import you can find 2.3L pzev hatchbacks. the 2.3 hatch is a bit lighter, better gearing, better torque, but you lose out on peak HP (but maybe not in STF spec) lose the big brakes.

there is no adjustable camber on any FOcus, but in STF you can run camber plates.

also, what autox club are you in? I run all the events with the UBCSCC
