    Minneapolis area for me. I went to the Minnetonka dealership yesterday. They took my info, let me test drive an ST to get a feel for the model and said they would get back to me when order banks open. /shrug

    My car doesn't have the torque steering effect so I am not very used to a car with oomph acting that way. Hope the RS feels more like a rocket.
    I like all the bonus stuff like multi color lights, gauge locations, push button start, keyless entry.

    The RS with AWD has no torque steer, but no muilti-color lights either , only white and yes it will be a rocket

    I'm up in Duluth. Current car is the cobalt ss turo, 2009, w/ gmpp stage 1, near 300hp. Lots of fun torq steer, but not as bad usually since it has lsd. I have an evo x at the moment tuned to 4xx hp and it makes my SS feel slow as hell. Thinking about getting the RS now, but also contemplating waiting until August next year to get a 17.

    Hey. Minneapolis hopeful owner here.
    I've talked to Invergrove Ford who is planning to do MSRP. Their allocations are spoken for, doing "special orders" now.
    New Brighton Ford didn't know what an RS was (maybe confused as it wasn't a truck???), so not too excited about buying there.
    AutoNation isn't spoken for, but the guy I talked to wasn't sure on pricing but guessed 3% over MSRP. I wouldn't be surprised 3% or MSRP either way.
    I have a deposit with Sterling Heights Ford, an 11 hour drive away. They're doing MSRP. Will be converting the deposit into an allocation on the 12th, with all going well. Bit of a haul, but whatever.

    Are there any MN ford groups? The "Minnesota Ford Enthusiasts" forums and facebook group seems absolutely dead. There is a Raptor offroad meet, but I'm not sure an RS would fit in with a bunch of offroad trucks. It would be cool to meet up with some other non-truck ford people.
    I'm currently driving a Honda Fit with 109HP stock. It is such a hateful drive. The Fit must go, RS or bust!

    I was hoping the RS would get similar treatment like the rs rally kit the fiesta got from ford racing to get it into rally'ing.
    The raptor runs are fun, I've done a snoball one but man is it a lot of driving to get out to the area

    Out there at least 3X per week! My 7yo son races karts and pounds out practice laps there all the time. Would be fun to have a meet and greet out there with the MN RS owners. www.stockholmkartingcenter.com They have a party room we could use for trash talking before/after we race
