I'll drop out for this month. Hell I wouldn't have to compete with Tribal or slocus next month since they are nominated two months in a row and I'll have more mods next month.

hey Ash!!
about all this dropping out deal...
I think that, in addition to the new rule (nomination for 2 months in a row bans you from ROTM for a whole year), we should make a new rule on top of it... like whoever doesn't want to run for ROTM (for whatever reason), has to say so in advance, just so we dont't have this kind of problems. Some people here are dropping out because they get greedy and they don't want to blow their 2 chances and then not be able to get nominated for a whole year. It's like... "yeah, all of you please nominate me, my car is badass, but the minute a better car is nominated I'll drop out".
To me that's BS. Just the fact that people are nominating their cars for ROTM is a prop to them, they should be grateful for that instead of dropping out later because they think they don't stand a chance. Winning is cool and all, but it's more about the fun... right?? Like for example, a lot of people in here have admitted trying to race (or at least keep up) with a mustang or a corvette or whatever. I mean... face it, the focus doesn't stand a chance against them, but you still do it for the hell of it, because it's fun. If it wasn't for the fun, then why waste gas knowing you're gonna loose. It's the same thing.
just my 2 cents.

Mine has nothing to do with competing with anyone. I have a ton of money sunk in my car and alot of custom work. I was tied with someone and figured I would be gracious and let them go ahead. It doesn't hurt that two of the people won't be able to go for a year. I am about to put an air suspension on my car in two weeks. Parts are sitting in my garage. Sunday the car is getting a bunch of parts pulled to go to the powdercoater Monday. So I will have alot more to offer once those are finished. Hell stick mine back on there if you feel like it. I wasn't nominated until I put myself out there. I probably would never of been nominated if I didn't. I feel like my Focus is a prime example of what you can do with the car but most of the people being nominated seem like they are friends with each other. I would like to win because my car deserves it and not because of politics. If I could offer a suggestion I would like to see the voting be stickied at the top of Showroom so more people look at it and vote. It seems to me the same people keep coming in here and voting month after month. I believe that would expand it to a much broader audience (sp). I never really noticed this ROTM section till awhile back. I love what you are doing and I love the Focus and wanna do my part to support it. Thanks!

No problem man, I just think you've done such a damn good job on that car already. Its exactly what I would like to do with mine one day, but the SB paint sets it off even better IMO. Weather you accept you nom. for this month or wait 'till you feel your done with the car, you got my vote.

you're just contradicting yourself, but whatever man... it's your right to decide wether you want to run for rotm or not. i just think it's not fair for the rest to play it like that.
and it would be cool if you uploaded pictures of your car to your gallery, who knows, you could get my vote, LOL.

BTW, Ashley!!, I'll nominate ilcowil, if i'm not too late for this.
He's pretty cool, very into this rotm thing, and I love the clean looks of his SVT. nice car man

*edit*
FocusdSound, nevermind, i scrolled back a few posts and saw the pictures of your car.

Thank you, Hector.

I thought before we started the rules that if you didn't post your ride in "submit your ride..." that it wouldn't be eligible. I don't know. I thought that would keep the cars limited to those who want to participate, and it would also limit the selection somewhat. Then, you don't have to worry about dropouts because the owner chooses whether or not they want to run, and the public chooses which ride they prefer.

Anyway, rules, rules, rules... they can take the fun out of things, can't they?
