And yes, if the road takes me to National events, that is where I will go. I'm a very thorough person with everything in and around my life. The car being no exception haha.

And Autocross may not necessarily be the type of race I will go, but I definitely want to compete in a class that my Focus is over all competitive in.

The 15" ultraleggas will fit. Go either 15 or 17, race tire selection in 16 is very limited.

Install a LSD, this is not an optional part if you want to be successful.

Sounds perfect but I don't have that money at the moment. I have to get some new design jobs done this year to turn some more profit into my project.

And the yellow is really nice too, though I'm considering going grabber orange or slightly darker.

Blonde included? hehe jk

I plan to supercharge the M3 if I sell either the Focus or the C32. The C32 is also for sale, so it's whichever goes first.

Thats great. You don't like the c32? One of my buddies has a c36, which is a cool car. I love the new ones.

sorry for going off topic OP.

I like all my cars, but I don't need three. The C32 is great for a daily driver. Torquey, rwd, and it likes to go sideways.
