    I'm more surprised that they don't realize that the majority of VAG cars are underrated from the factory, just like many BMWs of the past. I see they did their "safety veer" as well. Regardless, the Golf R has better aero and is likely underrated and the RS won, but the RS is a car designed for making you smile on backroads and a proper track, the kind with turn. It just so happens to be pretty quick in a straight line too. It's a great car, never thought I'd commend Ford on that unless they created another true RS200.

    2015 WRX - Gone
    2010 RDX
    2004 Evo 8 - Gone, was such a great machine.

    I noticed this as well. The RS went like 100 feet to the left for some strange untold reason while the golf kept tracking straight. Weird.

    Golf R v Focus RS

    Focus RS destroyed by the RDSG

    http://www.topgear.com/car-news/hot-...s-merc-a45-amg

    Second video, RS is quicker but then the R starts to claw it back in, gap goes from 0.5sec ahead down to 0.2 then eventually overturned. By a Manual R!

    I allowed one of these posts to see if trolling after I noticed it was posted in four different threads.

    So my suspicion may be confirmed.

    Not trolling, just giving my opinion on what the videos and other drivers say. Don't worry no agenda against Focus RS owners I think it's a great car, just hard to compare when people post 1 sided videos

    It was mentioned I only posted one sided videos (sounds like a VDub owner) yet I try to give all articles a chance to show all sides.
