Stock AUTOX Racing

I know this sound's like a pretty lame ass subject...but since i dont have enough money for any performance mods yet, I still love racing just for fun. But the focu's being the way it is, isn't exactly the fastest car on the road.

What cars can a (zetech) stock focus ZX3, ATX race and still win? I would guess like old neons and crappy cars like geos, but does anyone know or have like a list?

Yes they do have a stock autocross class, your car must be in showroom condition, you can have a few mods, like aftermarket shocks, wheels, tires.

Hey I resemble that Geo remark. With out going into the whole Isuzu/Geo storm story. I have to say. The that remark is uneducated. A car that has a Suspension designed by lotus cannot be that bad. Esspecially when Honda took the Isuzu 1.6 DOHC and incorporated its technology into their own engines almost 5 years later. But then Honda did get started Rebuilding old Isuzu's.

H-Stock, excellent. So I don't have to change classes next season.
