2 years ago i built a 2001 ZX3 focus to race circle track/dirt track/ hornets/ enduros, and "beater-x" (kind of like rally cars, but on a dirtbike/moto cross track)

this year i bought a 2006 ZX5 and in 2 weeks i turned it from a street car to a race car all by myself, including bending and building the roll cage

i also just bought a 2000 4door focus that needs a motor, and a stripped ZX3 parts car that im piecing together for a 4th race car, i also have TONS of parts. there is a 2008 4door that ive been considering buying for a race car too.

let me try posting some pictures from photobucket...

nice that's pretty bad ass.

what welding process did you use for the cage? I'm just curious... looks like it didn't get enough penetration but thats the super critical analyzing person in me. cage looks sweet though.

Thats pretty awesome! Would have loved to swap the front end off the newer focus before you did that to it though. lol But those are some sick pics man.

People throw "race car" around here quite freely and when I open the thread I'm usually disappointed but with yours you litterally throw around your RACE CAR. Nice.

Hek yeah, that's awesome!

I really wanna get into late model dirt track racing in the next couple years, it sure isn't cheap though! My GF's dad's name is Steve Barnett he races (late model dirt) for Tony Stewart Racing along with Steve Kinser (World Of Outlaws) and Smoke when he has time. Smoke's my favorite Nascar driver and I feel very lucky to have got to meet him/have some beers with him, since 2009 every year at "The Prelude" in Eldora, OH.
