    Focus RS TroubleShooting
    *86 degrees F, been driving up the canyons for about 30 minutes in my stock Cup 2s.* After about 3,500 miles, I decided it was finally time to try Drift Mode. :eagerness: Put it in 1st gear, steer all the way to the left, floor it, and spin 180 degrees. The equivalent of dipping my toe in the...

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Hey guys, I just recently bought my 2017 RS, (as in 2 days ago), and I've seen that the pilot super sports are not very safe tires in the cold and snow.

  14. Wow, thought this car was too stiff...silly dealer

    Focus RS Suspension
    OK,I get it. Ford made the car stiff...and the springs stiff... and the damping stiff. My dealer made it stiffer... I just checked the air pressure. Delivered with 51 PSi in each tire! Adjusted down to 41 f 38 rear on the 19" SC2's and life is good again. No stiffer that my modded MCS in...

  18. Correct Tire Pressures

    Focus RS Discussions
    I just took delivery of my Frozen White Focus RS (RS2, forged wheels, Super Sport tires, no sunroof, winter wheel/tire package). I was surprised to see the owners manual supplement does not list tire pressures and only says to see the door jam sticker. I was even more surprised to see the...
