Need Some Help with an SVT Please!


My name is Duane. I have been doing autocross for over a year now in NC and the Southeast . . . I use to drive a 1999 Saab 9-3 in STX, but it got rear-ended last week

So, I am looking to purchase an Focus SVT ASAP for use in H-Stock next year. I am very familiar with all the rules and basic setup, etc, I just have some specific questions for the SVT autocross setup:

1. Sways: What front bar do people run in H-Stock? The SVT comes stock with 21/21, and since you cannot change the rear bar, im thinking the base Focus model 18mm bar would be best? I have always setup fwd cars with small front bar, biggest rear bar, then tuned with tire pressures and struts, etc.

2. Tires: The stocks 17x7 will have to stay, so what size do people run for H-Stock tire class? I like the Hankook RS-3's, and they have a good 225/45-17 . . . is this the right size tire? Also, what size R-comps are people running (I know they can vary, I have seen a 275 on a 7-inch wheel a lot).

3. End links: Are MOOGS the ones to get? What poly bushing are people putting on the MOOGS? Im pretty sure that is the only place within stock rules that you can put some poly bushings in.

4. Harness bar: Since the seats cannot be changed out, what is the best/cheapest (i know, oxymoron) harness bar available? I will put a 5-point harness in it for autox.

Also, does anyone have any contact info for Ian Basford who placed 5th at this years SCCA Solo Nationals in H-Stock? I would like to ask him for some setup advice!

Thanks for the help!
- Duane
