nice. i'd think it would look a little better if you painted the lower part of your lower grille or the whole thing. because for some reason it just looks off to me. but its cool how you made it

It has in the back because the local shop install the wrong tire size and I didn't notice until I took them home and put them on. The fronts have never rubbed.

215/45-17 = rub

215/40-17 = no rub

but that's OK since it'll spin the tires @ 80 mph, so tire life has been a problem anyway.
And I have been using 16s on the track.

The grill is two stock grills molded together. I need the airflow for the intercooler. It's welded to a aluminum plate that has been cut to the form of the bumper. The plate helps force the through the intercooler and closes off the bottom like a undertray. It may not be show, but if you want the power.... Take the bad with the good. I actually don't think it looks too bad.

I think that's all, could be wrong though...


The Teins are height adjustable too. They're not really for the street. Very low. Even at the height they're at, I only have about 1/2 inch left to raise them. I built the car for one purpose only, Get around a track in the least amount of time. The Focus does fine with it's suspension, but I kept getting hammered down the straights. The SAAC-MCR runs Cobras, real Trans-AM Mustangs and more than a couple of Mustangs holding 400 -650 whp. I solved that problem.
Next up is the trans, then a cage.
