Indeed ... Im pretty curious to see how the Hybrid FI on your car will work out.

Did you build the internal parts of your engine? Stronger Pistons and so on?

Yes, the crank was inspected, balanced, and polished. Forged JE pistons, forged Eagle rods, ARP main bolts and head bolts, FR cylinder head, Crower stg 1 cams, all new bearings, and a whole lot of other minor stuff.

Don't you still have a stereo in you ride? I put the 340 pound stereo back in my focus just for the round-up lol! Power helps to just move the stereo for one show to the next lol!

All i would have left is a few old and used parts. Highly doubt you could use them.

Yessir, I still have the stereo in my ride. I doubt it will ever come out, even if I start drag racing the thing when it's all said and done!

hey guys ! hope you all had a good year! 2012 is here and as promised this event is in the works. currently in the planning stages. I really have high hopes for this event as long as everyone can work together and get along ( like i know everyone can )
Original plans included Dallas Raceway 1/4 mile track... but if you havnt heard dallas raceway was recently CLOSED . It was a great track and will be missed. Other tracks and options are still in the works but due to the cost of renting a track when no one is making runs we are considering hosting the show/meet portion of the event at a seperate location until racing begins.
Just wanted to get a feeler................what do you guys think of goKart racing?
and i dont mean the little 10mph karts you drive in circles with at your local puttputt.
Im talking about performance indoor karts that run around 45mph !! anyone ever tried them? anyone interested in trying them? they really are a fun experience and a level playing field for everyone to enjoy. Considering having the show portion at one of these Kart tracks then going to the real track afterwards.
Thoughts? Ideas? Is this something that would interest this group? Please let me know, thanks.

Welcome back Scott. What great timing. We have been talking about our TexasFocusRoundup and what we would like to do this year.

We have brought up the Kart idea but haven't made a decision yet.

I think a few of us would be interested in talking over what CSS members had in mind.
