New auto cross pics

First time at the auto-cross with the car finnaly completed.... Really happy with it.

Handles like a charm, brakes like mad, although I'm still waiting for the new master cylinder. Got great feedback, and didn't have a clue how many people knew about the RS outside the Focus community.

Awesome job on the car, man, and I'm glad to see you already using it for what it was made (I guess built in your case )! Was the course wet in some parts or just in that picture? So you've got the thing turbocharged now, right? How does it push?

MMM....sexy RS. Have any times from the auto-x? I see that you're doing an RS conversion. How much better do you like it?

No turbo yet, got to wait for next year.... Save up some more cash and drive the car for a bit.... I wasn't too far behind the WRX's so that's not too bad for 150hp...

But it handles like a dream I have removed about 10 pound of unsprung weight on both front side and it sure makes hell of a difference.

I'm in love with my own car.

Man that has got to be one of the nicest looking Focus I have seen to date!

Thanks for sharing it with us.

I know this is going to be a touchy question but...how much do you think you spent to complete the transformation so far?
