LET THE MODS BEGIN.

This will be my build timeline, so one day when I am old I can look back and say to myself..." DAMN I spent a lot of money. BUTTT it was worth it". I am not trying to build the fastest RS or the best looking RS, just an RS I am proud of. This will be my take on my opinion of tasteful mods and ideas for the 18' RS LE RACE RED or what I call Ford RR (f-aw-r-d Double-R).

Glad your back in a RS and ready to do it all over again. I'm a little jealous of the Race Red 18 and wish I could have 2 RS's so I could have my stealth grey and a RR.

Did the Mountune quickshifter and bushings. What a mod to do.. just to take out that pin. Everyone who does that should get a medal. Also did the hood struts as well

Arrived today and installed.i like it looks way better. The photos make it look different from the way it looks in person. It looks more red like the race red of the car, so matches better

I am happy for you. it's your RS.

But just my 2cents, the one big thing I liked on the RR was it matches the tail lamps, only need to get a regular focus 3 brake lamp.

I mean when the light is not on.

Got my tires mounted on my tsw with my RS valve caps today and installed my st suspension wheel spacer. What a difference. Install rally armor mud flaps also. Tomorrow will put on the mountune rear motor mount and sound suppression chamber. Will do a before and after of the wheel spacers tomorrow

What a difference with the spacers. The rear comes out about the same amount as the mud flap and the front even more.

---Rear Motor Mount (95.96)

Each to their own but this is the part that, for me, made the MOST difference to the car. Crucial to better gear changes as Ford made the original out of chocolate..

Right now I am doing the Snapshot Discount with Progressive, So right now I am not pushing the car at all. I barely put 200 miles on it already.
