SCCA membership of weekend membership. A helmet (they usually have ones you can borrow also). And a car. Minimal cost to participate. But addicting.

so the batteries were more expensive than I thought, my step dad just covered the balance. they're 105.56 core

might find a cheaper bat somewhere else.

I'm torn.. I either build my Miata for autocross or I sell it and build my SVT. The Miata IMO is a better/more fun autocross car, but my SVT is being neglected.

what do you guys think?

Wow sorry I spaced replying right away haha, been super busy this week. That price still seems decent for a motorcraft one.
I appreciate your checking up on it for me though!

ha probably Dprepared VS SMF PAX. my money is on the boosted SVTf.

basically building the Miata would consist of bolt ons- 750.00 and a new suspension- 2k
i'm still going to run a street tire class.

how much power are you going to run out of the focus? I say simply check out the power to weight ratio's. i'm liking the mazda.

probably going to run 8 psi on the fofo until I upgrade the tranny. after, i'm bumping it up to 13-15 on race days. guessing it would be around 230 @8 psi and 260-275 @15
the SVT should weigh in at about 2600 lbs compared to 2200/2100 of the Miata. Miata MIGHT break 100hp haha. but in autocross it's not always about power.. meh
