I'm in BRR-SCCA

Turbo Focus = SM Class

I'm in the Top 5 in my class and usually we are around 10 to 20 cars in the class, depending on the day

I am in street modified; I have a SPI focus and do pretty average in the class and in general. I have TB, P&P intake, P&P Heads, Xcal2, Short air intake, SVT rear Sway bar, Prothane brushings, strut bar(front and rear), back seat delete, Soon(by november) will be turbo. I also pull, the radio, and every thing else that is easy to remove from the car when I autox w/ me and a quarter tank of fuel the car is around 2300 lbs, with ~134hp maybe a little more(and like 143 lb/ft of torque)I do fairly well, except for that damn caterham 7

If some of u saw my other thread in zetec chat i wanna make a 2.0L push 25psi with a turbo.... if not a turbo ill look into superchargers later on when i get back to the states.... But besides racing solo... whats the other SCCA race... u can race ur car agianst other cars... like u kno look out the window and haha another car... yeah that typa stuff... what would it take to compete there... I used to do solo/time with my fiero but wanted to go on to something more hmmm advancing.. I got money to back a engine... i just needa know what stuff i should do.... Anyone got any ideas?

i wouldn't honestly modify a car that much for autox, wait till you get to wheel-to-wheel racing before dumping for that level of mods

^^^Have you ever tried it? If nothing else, it's great training for wheel to wheel racing.
