  1. Sunday Sept 2nd: PDX @ Sebring, $125 for the day

    Southeast RS Owners
    Plan on doing any PCA or Chin track days soon at Sebring? I'll probably be heading back once the temps drop.

    What are you laptimes these days? Car should be pretty nice now!
  3. How to Spend $30,000 Building a 600 BHP Focus RS

    Focus RS Performance
    Yeah.. I guess I don't care enough about AWD to spend this kind of money building an RS. I'd rather spend that money on a faster car with a factory warranty :)
  4. AUDI RS3 - The Replacement (and some thoughts on competition)

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    So glad I don’t need 4 doors ha
  5. Own a 2017. Make sense to trade for a 2018?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Price doesn't seem bad OTD. Since I assume you are in West Palm Beach (but could be wrong), your actual value of the trade will be $29,680 like mine was once you account for the tax benefit. If you don't add additional DP money, you'll be at >$600 a month for a 5 year loan at least, didn't...
  6. Guys, I need some help! Ford denied my warranty!!

    Focus RS Discussions
    No, it doesn't obligate the dealer to do ANYTHING. It obligates YOU to SUE Ford (the company denying the claim) to force Ford to provide evidence that those parts COULD have caused that damage. Ford's evidence is beyond simple, the part was replaced with an aftermarket replacement that does not...
  7. Guys, I need some help! Ford denied my warranty!!

    Focus RS Discussions
    Yeah good luck with that. Even if the OP did want to pay the $$ to take Ford to court, power mods breaking driveline components is a perfectly legitimate reason for Ford to deny a warranty claim. Going to court on this one will just result in the OP paying for both Ford's lawyers as well as his...
  8. Is the Focus RS a "rare" car?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Agreed... No chance in hell with a 2018 LE be worth 70K in 7 years. Even if shrink wrapped since new and kept in a climate controlled garage.
  9. Is the Focus RS a "rare" car?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Not even close to rare in my opinion. It'll be rare in 30 years probably when all the wanna be drifters wrap enough of them around trees, smash them into curbs or just drive into other random objects. 2018 LE specifically is more rare.. but.. having owned a 1 of 320 MY vehicle.. still not THAT...
  10. Kept up with a Jeep SRT8 until I shifted to 2nd

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Do you think it has more or less?
  11. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    I didn't even know that there was a meet tomorrow.. but I sold my RS so won't be going anyways. Need to work on our chumpcar and pack for a business trip because I'm stupid enough to book an 8AM flight on a Sunday to damn Seattle. Do you plan to track the car at all? If so I'm sure I'll see you...
  12. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Specifically purchased from Lake Ford Lincoln in Lewistown, PA. The phone shows 954 as the first 3 which assuming it's the AC that is a South Florida number. Could just be a snowbird. We do know that someone made the trade though.. and here's the CTR...
  13. Ford Focus RS vs. Honda Civic Type R vs. Volkswagen Golf R vs. Subaru WRX STI Type RA

    News
    Of course, the OEM Tires on the CTR are pure ****.. so if you need a Cup 2 to beat pure **** I'm not sure that's a great stance to take...
  14. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    I was going to reply to his post.. but then just didn't want the headache and moved on ;)
  15. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    I haven't run it at Sebring yet (just Dominion and VIR) so I can't directly compare it against myself in my RS, but equal drivers in 1LE's at Sebring are running 8-9 seconds a lap faster than I did in the RS. On the street, it's torquey as heck of course but lacks the rush of speed from a...
  16. If you could do it over again would you still buy an RS today?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Yes, if I wanted a practical all around car with some track capabilities. No, when I realized I didn't really need a practical car..
  17. Torque steer eliminated? Please try.

    Focus RS Discussions
    One of you who can magically feel a difference with HSA off need to do a blind test in someones RS and repeat that a few times. I'd love to see the results.
  18. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Well since I no longer have my RS.. My Camaro seats are better on track than the RS stock seats were though.. and leaving the AC on and seat vent fans running while still passing people is nice ;)
  19. Should I trade the RS for a Civic Type R?

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Eh, I have driven and tracked CTRs.. I have owned multiple Integra Type-R's and still own one today. I wouldn't buy a CTR. It's lighter than the RS and the seats are much better.. that's about it IMO. The RS is slightly faster on track stock vs stock and it's a better street car IMO. I went...
  20. So You’ve Just Crashed Your Daily Driver at a Trackday. Now What?

    Focus RS Racing
    I don't know anyone who has had to deal with Hagerty/RLI after a track day accident with HPDE insurance but I know a couple who have used Lockton. Receipts matter so keep them.. other than that, they had no issues. One was a shop/business car with $39k in receipts for a car that on the open...
