STX index didn't hurt my spirit, and FSP is almost the same number, but allows me to delete the cat, install r-comps, and some other things that I'm not remembering. Also who would I compete with in STF? So far it looks like I would just be chasing Dan Marx, since Adam might not be going there now. No offense meant to anyone else headed for STF

Also this chat is turning into something fit for the Random Autocross thread, or a lunch table.
ok my response to this nonsense is in the random autox thread.

14.11 OUT OF PRODUCTION CARS
Where a car is out of production and the manufacturer is either out of
business, stocks no parts or no longer has a required part, a part of any
origin but as similar as possible to the original may be substituted. The
entrant must be prepared to show documentary evidence that one of
the three circumstances above applies and that the substituted part is
as similar as possible under the circumstances. Substitute parts which
provide improvements in performance (e.g. superior gearing, lighter
weight, better camshaft profile, etc.) are not permitted under this allowance


Even if your flywheel isn't legal, I would get one that is considered legal. (it can't be that hard, there millions of Focus out there) The PAX from FSP will kill your spirit, no matter how much fun you think your car still is.

HOLY FUCK!! How do we start quoting autox rules in a ROTM thread???

Temper, temper.



We obviously already realized we were OT, and moved the conversation.

Jeep is a real beater

When Doug owned the Jeep I used it a few times for hauling. It beat my ears to death since the exhaust system rotted out in front of the muffler. The tailgate is rusted out and there are several electrical shorts and problems. It gets my vote.

Yeah I slipped up on this one, I have been crazy busy the last couple weeks with work and life. I completely forgot about this.

Kaptain's Cressida is the winner
