Getting started with rally cross

Hey everyone, I've always been interested in rally cross and stage rally, but where I live in california, it's mostly a ton of people that want to go fast in a straight line.

I love the look of rally cars like the old escort cosworth and early focus rs. I wanted to set up my 02 focus svt to do some rally cross.

Mainly dirt but road is fine as well, what kind of setups are you guys running?

Tires? Suspension? Better cooling system?

Any input is appreciated as I want to get into the sport. The speed shops here have no clue on how to, or even want to get into rally.
