That's cool. I have been to an autoxing event and I was very impressed with the miatas. Those things own the track! I wasn't very impressed with the corvettes, the Zo6s were extremely fast but screeched through the whole track. I saw a beetle 2.0 there and it did well. Those things stick to the road with little mods. Is your dad's diesel modded?

Awesome. The chips for those things are great. I wish chips worked on gasoline engines like they do diesels. How do you compare with your dad when autoxing?

he ownz me hardcore like always half a second or more ahead and i don't suck i do pretty well. Ya $300 for 25hp like really 25hp. Also bigger injectors would make it fly just he doesn't want to coulse his car would give off as much ssmoke as a big truck would lol.

AutoX gives the focus a chance to shine, I mean there is only so much fun you can have at the drag strip, I mean 1/4 times can only get so low before major money and tuning is put in, but autocross is all driver and speed isn't everything

This was my first season racing and the Focus did great!! I beat my buddy in his 2003 Civic and a few other cars. There is this Mazda protoge that I cannot beat. He has good tires and I just ran my staok ones. They about boiled over on my last run!!! I need to get some tires before spring season. BTW I ran in the stock class

No it was just a normal Protoge. He had been racing a lot long than me. He has a Cat-back also which is allowed in H-Stock. and you can put on a K&N filter and thats all the mods you can do besides tires.
