The year of 2017 is in full swing, and that means a lot of things are changing in everyone’s lives.
For me, I plan on doing what I did last year, but a lot more of it.
First, I plan on attending a lot of Cars and Coffee events, as well as some other automotive events and races. Heartland Park in Topeka Kansas is up and running this year, so I will probably swing by and spectate a few road races and drag races. I also plan on attending the 100 Acre Wood Rally in March.
Second, I plan on participating in a few more autocross events. last year I was one event away from being in the championship, and this year I plan to attend at least the minimum required if not more.
I also plan on making some modifications to the Focus ST for autocross. I plan to install an aftermarket rear sway bar to tame the rear of the car, as well as purchase some dedicated autocross wheels and tires.
One thing I didn’t mention in my video is that I plan to do some visual mods as well. Visually I plan to take the OEM snowflake wheels and paint them gold/bronze. I also plan on getting the windows tinted. The last thing I want to do is to add some graphics to the car, most likely in the form of giant magnets I can put on the hood and doors with my logo on them as well as some fun car memes or something.
I’m sure I’ll be adding more to this list as the year goes on, but for now I think this is a great start.
