And I'm even later. I just bought an SVT and desperately need to meet someone who knows what it is supposed to look like under the hood so I can understand what has been done to my car by previous owners!

I'll be doing a tech day tomorrow with some mostly Miata friends, core people from the FAST autocross club, to do a suspension refresh on my car (SVT suspension pack to bring the suspension back to stock ... as a starting point).

If anyone wants to join us just PM me and I'll get back to you with a time and address. Otherwise, I hope to meet up with fellow Focus fanatics, esp. SVT owners, someday soon.

I haven't autocrossed in about 2 years - other things were taking up my time - but I think I'll be back with my SVT soon! I hope I'll see you there, if not sooner.

I started autoX years ago with the old SunRiders club when I had a Subaru Legacy 2.5GT, then a '97 red Miata, then the infamous Tampa Bay FrankenMiata, about then the club became NASA for a year and then FAST. Somewhere in there I sold the FrankenMiata and bought a S2000.

I sold the S2000 a couple of weeks ago and used part of the proceeds to buy my SVT.

My car needs some work (slightly molested with an ugly body kit and new but poorly done paint job) but it was cheap enough and with good "bones" so it will become a multi-year project car. I've got plans ...

It really would be helpful to be able to get with someone who knows the SVT to see if they can spot issues I've missed. PLEASE!

Hey there, we actually have a thread going on right now called "Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater Summer meet..." discussing this very same idea. We're kicking around a few ideas for locations and dates and such, come check it out and let us know what you think!
