Hey Kyle,

Alex from Mustang here reporting in. There are some focus enthusiasts around OKC, but it's hard getting them all together sometimes. Where do you normally hang out when you're with your friends?

I'll be out at the track day at the Sheriff's Training Center. You should come out and try it or at least come spectate and meet some new people.

www.svtoaok.com

You can also find Mike (SteelRain) and me at all the OKSCCA autocrosses. We'd love to see more support for the focus out at the events and make some new friends.

www.okscca.org

Just let us know what you'll be up to, and we'll keep you posted on the stuff we're doing.

I haven't really gone to the tracks or anyhting. Mostly just up to 39th St or 12th St in Moore. I used to go up to Cable VW on 39th all the time with my F250 1) because I used to know some guys with trucks 2) because my buddy had a GTI and used to work at Cable VW. Now he moved and I bought a Focus and of course all my truck friends think I'm stupid. But I laugh at them at the gas pump....

So wen is the track day? I checked out the website. Is it the 20th?

Anyone going to be out at 39th or anything next weekend?

I don't normally go down 39th too often. Too many kids in cars with too many egos. After being chased down by someone in a raised Chevy and having cars swarming around me at illegal speeds continually, I decided I'm better off hanging out elsewhere. However, I was out there on my bike last night before it got crowded looking for some fellow riders. Turns out there are a lot of kids with egos on those too.

The SVT lapping day is Saturday May 20th - this coming Saturday. If you need directions or anything you can give me call (I'll PM you my number). I shouldn't really call it a "track," but it is a closed course. It'll be a blast anyway especially when pushing the car.

I'm more than willing to meet some new focus owners, so I'd be willing to go up to 39th or where ever sometime for it. Just let me know.

Yeah, that's another reason I don't go up to 39th very much anymore. I'll come out there to the track but I'm not going to run. Just lookin for stuff to do with other Focus owners.

Red with black stripes and black wheels? I think the SVT association welcomes all cars, and I know at the lapping day they're having, anyone is welcome to participate regardless of car. The Porsche Club is having an autocross at the same location the very next day - Sunday, May 21st. If you like what you see, you might try autocrossing with the Porsche Club. Cheap and fun as hell!

Just so you know, the lapping day is also an instruction day. So, if you would like an instructor and some behind the wheel practice, the lapping day with the SVT club this Saturday would be a great way to get your feet wet.

And, if you come out to the autocross the following weekend (May 28th) at Remington Park, you're more than welcome to ride with me on some of my runs.

I should check these threads more often. I'm from Moore and I usually hit up 12th every Fri. I'll go out to 39th too sometimes. There's a few Focii that run out there, SVT's even. . .[8D]

The only reason I haven't gone to 12th is because the ramp from 1-35 is closed. (stupid reason I know)

You should really go sometime. Just take the exit before 12th. (27th I think)

Yeah, getting us all together would be cool, but when and where? I'd love to get a pic of all the Foci around here all lined up.

I guess you mean where i'm usually at on 12th. On the west side there's the Westlake Ace Hardware and on the east side there's the O'Reilys autoparts. Those are the two turnarounds as well.

Yeah, I meant to say where on 12th. I've been there b4 and I know what places you are talking about. Last time I was at both of those places and we got chased off by cops.
