New here

Hey everybody,
Im new here and wanted to say hey!
I have a 2000 zx3 I bought bout 9 months ago. The plan with the car is to get it ready for a novice rally and to also set it up for lapping in the off days.
So far on the car.

Bought it with aftermarket headers and exhaust, not sure of the make of them yet. Will be investigating more later.
So far I've put Eibach lowering springs on it a long with the sway bars.
The cold air intake that came with it is crap and was dangling in front of the wheel so I cut it and its sitting behind the battery until I find something better, something that actually brings the cold air in.
the rear interior has been gutted and soon will the rest.
Its a funn little car to drive.

I took it to a high performance racing school the other day At Pacific raceways and got to "let it loose" was a lot of fun. The car needs more power however its nice to learn how to keep the momentum going in it.

I will get some pictures up of her a bit later.

glad to be on the site and hope to gather lots of information from you.

Kobi

New here

Hello..

Just bought a new 2011 SEL Charcoal Grey, its only 2 months old and barely 1,000 miles. Its fully loaded with black leather, moonroof, Euro tune suspension and chrome package.
I am hoping to start modifying it as soon as the weather starts cooperating but for now I am happy with the almost 40mpg, much better than the dismal 15-18 mpg on a Chevy S10 Extreme.
The first mod is definitely getting the tint done.

Already have a post in the Sedan Revolution for a member number
Pics to come as soon as the rain quits.

Newbie

Hello all, I'm in the market to consider purchasing a 2000 focus and decided to start familiarizing myself. :)

Need a daily driver and found the above-mentioned focus that I'd actually enjoy driving haha! Looking forward to learning about my possibly-new car.
Living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I have a 1994 Grand Prix project car that I'm workin with on the side.

Hey Focus Fans. I am also a fan obviously, and I'm planning on purchasing one soon. As of right now I am a Ford ASSET student and a Automotive Tech. My love of the focus was created when I was searching for a small car with good mpgs and enough power to satisfy my need for speed (legal speed that is). I hope to gain knowledge and advice from you guys.


Oh, at the moment I drive a 1995 Chrysler New Yorker, which isn't too bad but gas is killing me.
