Not really sure what I want to do. Kona gets 3" exhaust, 3" intake and meth injection. 02 might get some cams. Also some purple crack.

I'm installing SVT brakes in my focus.
Also I'm working on installing my fender flares to get the proper wide body look going.

Still debating on changing class ...

But during my off-time from AutoX, I will be focusing more on my suspension - new shocks (already bought) and camber plates - and focusing on better tuning the SVT.

Since we don't exactly have an off-season in TX for AutoX, I am going to just order parts and put them on in one swoop once all the parts I want are in.

That is what my brother is doing for his E30!

I been eyeing trucks in the next couple years but that will be for my mustang when it is fully build out for ESP. Off season plans for the mustang will be AST 4100s, Strano Sways, Clutch/Fly Wheel, maybe a diff (haven't decided on that yet)

My Focus needs some TLC (get it properly cooling, head gasket, trans rebuild) and I don't want to give up next season while I fix it so I recently got a '90 CRX Si off a guy who was building it for STS but then had a kid. Its a high mileage chasis (240k) but its a fresh rebuilt engine with less than 2k.

It has yellows with GC sleeves, 350/400 springs, ST rear bar, HF front bar and poly engine mounts so it should be a good starting off point. It just needs a few basic maintenance items and it will be ready. It should be a fun project.

I will be working on my MR2 and M3 over the winter. First "mod" was a more economical winter beater---insert 1999 Toyota Corolla. The turbo on my MR2 is most likely on it's way out so I'm looking into a better turbo. The M3 recently had headers intalled. It will be moving from BSP tire index to BSP and getting rims/r comps. I will also be doing at least a front sway bar. I'm considering doing a mid pipe, intake system, new tune and shorter diff ratio.

Now that the holidays/vacations are over, I can start buying parts for the CRX build and the Focus rebuild. Time flies when you're building two cars.

I'm not sure though if I should keep the Focus SMF legal or just build it for flat out autox fun (class be damned)

Ha, we are sort of in the same spot right now!!^^
i just picked up a 97 miata on Tuesday night.. i'm building it for STS while still finishing up my turbo build for my SVT.
i'm thinking about making my SVT a track/daily driver toy, because the Miata is too damn fun! i'll post some photos later. you should post some of the CRX too.
