    I too went from a FiST to a FoRS. Since my focus [pun not intended] is on autocrossing, the big difference there is the lack of a limited slip diff in the Fiesta. Even with its relatively modest power, I experienced much wheelspin exiting corners in the FiST, which just doesn't happen in the FoRS. Corner exit speed is the FoRS's huge advantage.

    The FiST would be a nice daily commuter. Test drove it several times.

    Waiting for it for the price to go lower.

    Anyone thinking about a Fiesta ST, go get 1. Ford's got a 3k rebate through June making a 2019 NEW 15k before tax and fees. I'm trying so hard to validate buying 1 right now lmao. Probably going w a 15 Jetta sportwagen TDI though.

    Anybody else seen this video? I know a hellcat can run low 11's stock but it's still fun to watch the little pocket rocket whip it!
