I've spent a few hours searching, but can't seem to find anything concrete. Probably because not many people have actually driven the RS?

What will the clutch feel like? Will you be able to feel the engagement point? Or is it fully electronic with no feel?

It seems like they have paid very close attention to everything about the feel of the car. So I can't imagine they would leave the clutch out.

I agree - but I can't seem to find any press, or comments, specifically about it, positive or negative.

I saw one opinion about the stall that happened at the Ford Nationals. Some commented about clutch feel, but that seems more speculation then anything else.

Perhaps someone else has some insight on it?

So few have driven one, I don't think you will find anything and if so it's still from a pre production model...

The only non project member or Ford employee to drive one I think is Ken Block. You will have to wait a few months until the journalists get a chance to take a spin. You may have to read a few articles unless the clutch really sticks out good or bad, it's not something that everyone writes about.

I sat in a shifted one (car not running). Felt just like an ST, not heavy at all. Shifter had considerably shorter throws than the ST along with a short (height wise) stick.

I haven't looked close enough at the interior photos, but.
Did they use the same small reverse lockout lift ring as they did on the ST?
