  1. Ford Focus RS vs. Hyundai Veloster N... Eye Opening!!!

    Focus RS Photos and Videos
    I have to admit, AWD vs. FWD and 350hp vs. 275hp, I thought is was going to be a blow out... If you want to skip the intro and lead-up, go right to the 9:50 mark for the lap times.
  2. Super easy Mountune Short-Shifter install

    Focus RS Guides
    I installed this short-shifter from Mountune and really like the 25% throw reduction, and the nice weighty feel. It makes for a great upgrade and takes less than an hour to install - depending on how hard it is to hammer the set-pin out.
  3. SCCA Champion Pro-Driver Lawrence Loshak drives my RS at Road America in the Rain!

    Focus RS Photos and Videos
    Yeah, it was a High Performance Driving Event (not a real race) so there were 3 designated passing zones in the straights only; so even though Lawrence is a Pro-Driver, out of respect for the event and the more novice drivers, he waited till the next official passing zone to overtake the Miata...
  4. SCCA Champion Pro-Driver Lawrence Loshak drives my RS at Road America in the Rain!

We...
  5. Hot Hatch vs. Muscle Car - Focus RS goes up against a Mustang GT... at the track!

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    OK, opera_bob... I called Mountune and they told me with 93 octane gas, there is about a 25 hp gain and about a 45 ft-lb torque gain. So that means the RS would have a total of about 375hp and 395 ft-lb torque. From driving the car with the tune, the torque is where you really feel the...

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Thanks for watching and about the background music - will make adjustments on the next video. This Mustang is the Roush RS2 which just adds some visual aero, different wheels and a custom exhaust - the engine is bone stock right out of the standard GT, so technically the first round is stock vs...
  7. Hot Hatch vs. Muscle Car - Focus RS goes up against a Mustang GT... at the track!

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Hey Exturbo, we actually switched the modes between Sport and Track and tried the firm and firmer dampers in each mode - for this specific track, we got the best lap times in Track mode, with traction control completely off (hold the button for ten seconds) and the dampers in their firmest...
  8. Hot Hatch vs. Muscle Car - Focus RS goes up against a Mustang GT... at the track!

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    Great question... it was a OBD2 plug-in reflash through a COBB V3 accessport, "Ford Focus RS B1 Package" It is mild but very noticeable especially at 4000+ rpm where you really feel that extra gust of power. As far as what the exact horsepower and torque figure are - I will call on Monday and...

  12. Kia Stinger GT (RWD) turns out to be a dud

    Focus RS vs The Competition
    StingerForums.com - The Largest Kia Stinger Forum, Community And Owner's Club With a 365hp twin turbo V6, I though this car would be at least be close to the RS but even in the hands of track-star Randy Pobst, it couldn't keep up with 2013 Focus ST, let alone an RS. Since the AWD version of...

    @dmtalon: Just saw your previous cars list... I had the very first year of the Eagle Talon TSi AWD 1990 (although they were sold at the start of 1989 as '90 models).
