Otherwise, your posts and threads will be deleted without warning.

We love seeing all the vendors here and are just as excited as anyone to see your products as they come out! We're here to try and make this community a better place for all and want to make sure all vendors are on the same fair playing field when marketing their products on this site.

Thank you for your understanding and let us know if you need anything!

A look at this year's ECOTY entrants

evo Car of the Year 2016 promises to be even bigger and better than last year's. We've got an incredible collection of cars but don't want to give away the entire list just yet.

Check back daily to learn more about ECOTY 2016's contenders.

Ford Focus RS:

No one could accuse Ford of not listening to customers, forum keyboard bashers and journalists alike when it came to the new Focus RS. At last, here is a Focus hot hatch that deploys its power – all 345bhp of it – through not just a hard-worked pair of front tyres, but all four of them. And it’s not just an atypical modern ‘power on demand’ sort of four-wheel drive system; this is a sophisticated ‘active’ rear ‘differential’, with multi-plate clutches for both rear wheels. Moreover, the Focus RS is now a global car and brand, which must make a big difference to the economies of scale, and hence the business case.

'A couple of times I ask more of the Michelin Pilot Super Sports as a corner tightens', said Henry Catchpole as he placed the very blue Ford above the ubiquitous Golf R and bellicose Audi RS3 in evo’s on-launch group test, 'and the RS simply bites harder and scoots around. The body control is extremely impressive too, the tail just nicely mobile.' Sounds good.

Indeed. On paper at least, the Focus RS appears to be the perfect sporting hatchback. ‘The Greatest hot hatch ever’, have screamed some, but is it really worthy of such a title? ECOTY should provide the ultimate test, the beauty of which – and to the Ford’s advantage – is that it’s the ultimate level playing field. ECOTY isn’t about money, or top speed, or glamour. If a hot hatch achieves that higher state of driving bliss there’s no reason why it can’t admonish the exotica to the also-ran places. Mere numbers don’t dictate how special a car feels, and that’s what really separates the great from the very good.

But is the RS special enough? Not every evo staffer has been convinced so far of its one-size-fits-all approach to global hot... [Read More]

Ford has previewed its customized compact cars that are heading to the 2016 SEMA Show.

The Ford Fiesta and Focus models are getting plenty of personal touches for the annual aftermarket convention in Las Vegas, with themes ranging from track-ready car cars to street cruisers. Dom Tucci Design will be taking care of the Fiesta ST, squeezing in a Full-Race turbo kit to the factory 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine. And then there’s a pair of Focus ST concepts, one from Blood and Grease and another from Cinemotive Media. Blood and Grease’s project*features a matte black exterior while the 2.0-liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine get plenty of bolt-on upgrades including a Mishimoto Performance air intake, J-Line intercooler, Flowmaster American Thunder exhaust and more.

The other Focus ST from Cinemotive Media gets plenty of go-fast goods from Mountune, including the company’s MR300 performance upgrade featuring a front mount intercooler, intercooler piping, high flow induction kit, cat back exhaust, Mtune tuning and downpipe. Cinemotive Media’s Focus ST will*hug the ground thanks to BC Racing BR Series coilover suspension and 18-inch ADV.1 wheels.

A trio of Focus RS will*likely be the stars, with Full-Race taking one head-on with a full turbo upgrade kit to bring 450 horsepower to all four wheels. Roush Performance will also work its magic on the Focus RS with a complete Ford Performance shortblock assembly and Roush Performance goods to take the 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine to 500 hp.

Lastly, H&R will draw from Ford’s roots in rally competition to create a race-ready Focus RS featuring H&R custom RSS Performance coilover suspension and 18-inch OZ Racing Rally Racing wheels wrapped with*Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Get more details on the Ford Focus and Fiesta projects when the 2016 SEMA Show kicks off early November.

Ford spices up its hot hatchbacks for SEMA

Ford adds customized Fiesta and Focus models to its SEMA lineup.

by Joel Patel, 21 October 2016

Ford hopes to bring 50 customized cars to SEMA, and the latest additions to the lineup include one Ford Fiesta and five Focus hatchbacks. Some look like rally machines for the road while others just sport a fancy paint job.

The lone Fiesta ST is built by Tucci Hot Rods with a custom wide-body kit. It has been lowered, and retains the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine but now features an upgraded turbo, custom exhaust system, as well as a Cobb Accessport V3 ECU upgrade. The clutch has also been updated with a Spec Stage 4 kit.

The customized Focus models include: a 2016 Focus ST by Blood & Grease with a matte black paint job, a 2016 Focus ST by Cinemotive Media with fender flares and performance upgrades from Mountune, a 2016 Focus RS with an updated twin-scroll turbo kit and a gray and orange paint job by Full-Race Motorsports, as well as a 2016 Focus RS by H&P Special Springs/Stanceworks with rally-inspired graphics.

The most promising hatchback, to us, is the Focus RS by Roush Performance. The more aggressive body kit gives the hatchback a more menacing look, while Roush's shortblock assembly, performance calibration, and improved cooling system bumps power up to 500 horsepower.

Ford already revealed its modified Mustangs, Fusions, and F-150s for SEMA earlier this month, which leaves its crossovers and SUVs as the last vehicles to get the SEMA treatment.
