    Lightness isn’t a huge concern for me, but I would really like a set of front and rear tubular control arms maybe out of steel. Strength is important for rallycross. I’m very interested

    Don't you have to run a non-divorced set up in rear for those to work? That means you can't use most of the best suspension options like DSC.

    You can run the standard setup as long as a lower spring perch is added. See the focus ST rear arms

    This looks promising! What's the design for the lower spring cup?

    Think those reservoirs would look better mounted inside the car.
