So everything I'm seeing here is older than four years old. I know that there is a big shake up in the rules. No stock class? Now its a Street class, and you don't use DOT race rubber but you can go oversized one inch on the wheels? I'm kind of wanting to try it again. I was avid from about '92 through '97, and won a few regional championships and some runner up titles too, in my Lotus Elan+2 (C Stock second place), Lotus Seven, (ASP 1st place, and AP 1st place), '68 Cortina GT (DSP runner up twice I think) and 1984 Scirocco 8V (E Stock 1st place 1997 the last year I ran enough events to be a factor). I can't even find decent tires for my stock 13" x 5-5/2" wheels on the Cortina and Lotus 7 any more. Anybody here out there running over cones any more? I will say one thing: If you want to compete, you need to modify to the rules. If you modify first and try to compete later, you are likely to end up in a class where your modifications push you into a class where you are way too slow to compete.

Its still fun though.

Yeah, not a ton of autox chatter around here unfortunately but there are a few of us.

As for the new rules, I'd suggest starting here

You have hit most of the highlights. The Focus is a good fit for both HS and STF. Beware, HS almost didn't survive the large shake up last year and may get chopped this year due to low participation numbers. STF is where I run with my SVT and is a good fit for most any Focus. The 2.3l 03-04 Focus is probably the best starting point for a Focus STF build.

Hope that helps!
