I haven't left autox, just got a new car.

I've had this focus for almost 12 years. you start to get bored after a while.

Yeah, not a huge fan if I'm honest. It looked good, and the work done was very nice, so props for that I can respect it. Just not my thing!

cut my rear wagon springs.
took out 1 coil to start from the stiff end. it was mostly dead coil anyways.

drop the rear by 1/2". I've got a rallyx this weekend, so I'll try it before i cut any more.
initial feel it is not as harsh as it was before. I still have a bit of rake to the car, so I might take more out, just based on that.

Do you run an on-board camera or anything when racing? I'm curious to see this in action. Any spectators/photographers have access to the course? Be great to see this thing get airborne and how the suspension reacts
