As someone who builds and sells rally related things every damn day let me say. IT'S A TERRIBLE IDEA!

Well, terrible if you want to win. If you just want to spend 15k and just have fun, then it's a great car. Go out, have fun. I'm not one to crush anyone's dream.

go buy a Golf rally car and leave your Focus alone. it will be the best 3-5k you'll spend.
Lower your ST, get some good 17" wheels with BGF sport comp 2's and find some autocross and hillclimbs in your area and have some fun. Trust me on this one.

If you plan on rallying it, swap the bumpers for the regular ones.. those bumpers are getting hard to find, and are high demand. would be a shame to munch those up.
