Should have labelled this review as CarAdvice, part II. The previous post covers day one, and reviews the RS as a road car. This is devoted to day 2 of the reviews, when Ford let the writers loose on the track.

Really great review, thanks.

Love the fact that the RS can pop 60 mph in second.

And what a great idea: Wait til you're ready to get new tires, and fry the hell out of the old set before replacing. Didn't think I'd ever use the Drift Mode, but now......

If it wasn’t for the tyre noise, it would be rather hard to tell where the grip ends.
Well that's a downer. I found that to be the biggest weakness of the ST in my test drive - no indication through the steering that the front tires were about to let go. Boo.

Great review and I am pleasantly surprised with their opinion. I love the comments section where the author responds to someone asking why he was flat shifting into second gear - "If the head of Ford Performance tells you to flat shift into second gear, you flat shift into second gear!"
