If you have that much money sitting around, it'll be much much cheaper to buy a used rally car and keep your SVT as a beater.

car's been at Synaptic 3 Engineering (the aforementioned local rally shop) for a few days. They've done most of the work but need to replace a tie rod before aligning it. I also need to meet with them next week to talk about what work they'd recommend to get it rally ready.

Since they've done a ton of work on another Focus to prep it to Rally America regs, I'll be in good hands. They have a decent labor rate and seem like really good guys. So I'm glad I found them.

Not sure; should be well under $1000 for the stuff I wanted done. The cage and installing new seats will be a ton more.

kimbo305, I may use a different car when the time comes, not sure, but the thing is, this car is paid off, and has been for a couple years, so when it comes time to get a new car, (actually probably a truck) I can just start modding the car as I have the $$.

MLBBaseball are you using the ZX3 from your sig, that runs 14s?

If you cut out the plastic that you needed, I'm sure you could make it fit.

now not to sound like a total noob, but I know the ebrake uses steel cables to activate the rear brake, how do you bypass that to run the hydraulic ebrake?
