FWIW, Both NASA and Rally America have required sticker packages (have to keep their sponsors happy and what's worse you have to buy the stickers from them). They're definitely required if you want to be eligible for contingency money and awards. They pretty much tell you where they have to be placed and that will determine what's left for your sponsors. This may change your design concept.

dinged up paint is part rally and so is damaging parts. remember is a paint idea is not set in stone and paint would be last anyway cause of body mods is just something to hold me over for a while

Dude, you are a tool. Taking your new car and flying down logging roads is NOT rallying.
You need more than just cool tires. You NEED a real cage, not some NOPI/ mad tyte yo/ jdm bolt in piece of crap. You NEED a real suspension and under body protection. You NEED driver training.
I'll just sit back and wait for the post where you say you totaled your focus screaming down a muddy dirt road.

Instead we saw only some paint schemes, spoiler mods, and accessorization of a car that you purport to want to rally.

Come on man, don't call the guy a tool for an idea of what he wants to do. Who says he runs his brand new car down logging roads. It may be a little unrealistic for him to think he's going to be rallying his car or what not, but it doesn't mean you should be the one to put him down for it. How do you think all the actual rally guys started out?? in 100k sti's or what not? No probably like what he wants to do. I hope in a few years he's running circuits and you're reading about him, and you're like ahhhhh shit..... I'm a tool. It would have been fully acceptable for you to just say he needs to throw a suspension in, and tons of work, and should probably consider some training on how to handle that type of driving, but that was straight up FJ style /rant.

That's an awful price, but either way, don't bother trying to make power on this car if you're gonna rally it.

double check these are FIA certified; I couldn't see that it was anywhere.

Just pick up the Ford Racing rally brake kit. These guys might have a caliper configuration that'll prevent you from running a 15" or 16" wheel.

If there's one thing you can't cheap out on, it's suspension. Look for a used set of quality suspension bits. Rally suspension needs are very different from street or track suspension.

You shouldn't worry about this stuff. None of it is keeping you from getting on stage. A complete RallyAmerica graphics package is like $45 or something.
