  2. How to quiet down AWE Track

    Focus RS Performance
    So I recently installed the AWE track exhaust and love everything about it (stock downpipe), except two specific scenarios. 1. WOT pulls and decel, the backfire and pop which is normally quite nice with the stock exhaust is simply too loud (for me). It is gun shot sounding. 2. Letting off the...

  6. Does the RS teach bad habits?

    Focus RS Racing
    I've been lurking here for a while, trying to decide between a FoRS and a Golf R. I plan to do my first track days and autocross events in this car. The Focus is faster and more fun on a track, but I'm worried about reports that the car's handling can feel artificial and that the car's...
  7. Best track tires

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Any suggestion? With a lack of camber adjustment not every tire works. I've just got a set of Dmack dmt rc - it's a WRC tarmac tire. I was hoping that it will be great on the track, but it isn't. It's actually worst than original michelin super sport.

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hello members, Sorry this is for NA only. Maybe I can get a dataset for other regions to add in the future? I've been working on a way to view @Shoey's VIN spreadsheet, which he is scrubbing from ETIS (in a basement somewhere in Mexico) :wink-new:. So I created a dashboard, basically...
