I just started in auto-X, and I just want to say that you should love it. Not only did I meet plenty of new friends, I got to see some sweet cars. The Focus is a good car to race too. The handling is balenced, and your H&R kit should only enhance that. Good luck, and keep us in touch on how you do.
Straightaways are for fast cars. Corners are for fast drivers!
