Help build the ultimate STS Focus autocross racer

We know how important driver skill is in autocross, but imagine if you will that we already have the best driver available. And after years of winning with Civic SIís, he/she has become bored and is looking for a new challenge. Letís also say that our hypothetical driver has always been a fan of the Ford blue oval and he/she has decided to try to win the SCCA STS championship with a Focus. Remember, our driver is looking for a challenge.

Our driver doesnít know a lot about the Focus, but he/she knows that we (Focus Fanatics) do. Our task is to build the best Focus autocross racer we can. A car capable of presenting a real challenge in STS.

Thatís the back story and hereís the challengeÖ

I thought it would be interesting and maybe even a little fun to see if the folks on this forum could as a group design the ultimate Focus for the SCCA STS class. I picked STS because the Focus has had pretty good success in this class and it wonít break the bank to build a good racer. Iíve listed out the areas that are open to modification in this class and Iíd like to hear from forum members on how you think the car should be modified. Based on the consensus of the responses I receive from the group, Iíll update the thread to reflect what we think a winning Focus would look like for STS.
