  1. 3 Year Warranty Expiring - Any Known Issues to Address?

    Focus RS Discussions
    It looks like it cracked, because one side of the stud is rusted and the other is a clean shear.
  2. 3 Year Warranty Expiring - Any Known Issues to Address?

    Focus RS Discussions
    My seat pivots and I lost a wheel stud somehow. Just wondering what other work people are getting done under warranty?
  3. Track Mode ... The New Drift Mode

    Focus RS Racing
    I prefer them, they don't roll over as bad and absorb a lot of the energy from bouncing. The 19s are like big slugs of metal and the ride quality is much harder.

    Frozenspeed, Jochen Van Cauwenberge took these awesome photographs. Follow him on IG, he takes incredible motorsport pictures. These shots of me are pedestrian compared to his other work. His attention to detail is incredible.
  6. Rotor and Pad Replacement Recommendation

    Focus RS Discussions
    The Ferodo DS2500 are good pads for street. RacingBrake makes two piece front and back rotors. https://www.racingbrake.com/RB-OE-Two-Piece-Rotor-Kit-Ford-Focus-RS-2016-p/for-irk-03.htm

    Had a blast yesterday at Laguna Seca Raceway with Exclusive Track Days for the their high dB day. It had rained the night before so the track was green and 59F was the high of the day so grip was fleeting. I broke into the 1:47s And had an off in turn 6 in the morning. Thank...

  10. Ford performance pack?

    Focus RS Discussions
    I had the Ford Performance Tune. I was one of 6 people other than the special 50 cars that got it. It's a stage one tune and the mpg was miserable, like 12 everywhere except the track which was 6. I'm pretty sure they pulled it because of carb, not the hg issue. I have a Cobb stage 2 tune...

    Lol! You get what you pay for, so CO$$ or COBB rather 😉
  12. How helpful is a new FMIC?

    Focus RS Performance
    Fixed the leak and used the AP to restart learning. The car pulls much stronger than the Ford Performance tune. I have two front tires on order do to be mounted and balanced next Wednesday but the saga with the dealership continues. I had explained that I found the driver's side brake duct...
  13. KW V3s with Volk Racing Wheels. Will it rub?

    Focus RS Discussions
    I have the KW V3s but also have the ground control camber plates and run nitto nt01s in 245/40 /18 on a 18x9 +45 and this setup is very similar in circumference to the stock tire. It does rub as there is slight wear in the rib in the center of the wheel well but nothing on the side. I have...

    The dealership fixed the RTV and also a leak in the shifter which cleared up a lot of issues I was having with it from the start. The AP recognized my car so I flashed the COBB 91 octane stage 2 tune. So funny, my MPG has improved dramatically compared to the Ford Performance tune :) Power is...

    I believe 6 units were actually sold, and I had mine installed by the dealer. The COBB FMIC and hard pipe kit is installed. The access port did not recognize my car so I have to take the car back to Ford to have them flash it back to stock. Appointment is scheduled for tomorrow but...

    It's here but probably won't install for awhile. Next 10 days look shoddy weather-wise.

    I think he only has 360 hp so I should be able to get close. The problem is, he weighs less than me :( His tires were worn pretty well which is why he spun.

    It should arrive tomorrow. I will install intake first. Then FMIC and piping and Cobb Stage 2 tune. Stage 1 and Stage 2 power gains are posted on the Cobb website ... Stage1 91* Gains: Peak HP: +11.33% / Max HP +28.14%. Peak TQ: +18.02% / Max TQ +27.92% Stage1 93 Gains: Peak HP: +11.93% /...

    I'm currently running the Ford Performance Stage 1 tune with upgraded filter, Mountune recirc valve and RMM, and Borla S-type exhaust. I pulled the trigger on the Cobb intake, FMIC and piping and accessport. I like the car now but I think this will get me closer to my buddy's Porsche GT3 so I...
