Good question, some avatars look female but you can't tell.
I went to a wedding in December and my nephew was there with his new girlfriend. He is a really tall guy, 6' 5" and his girlfriend in heels was the same height. She was trim and pretty nice looking but that is not what I liked about her. She was a national car show representative for Chevrolet and travels all around the United States going to car shows. Had very interesting discussion with her about cars; she actually was very knowledgeable about cars and besides Chevy's we even talked about the RS.
My mom keeps saying that she is in the market for a new car and is thinking about a Ford, but she has ruled out the RS because it is "just a four door hatchback" and "too boring." She's thinking about a GT350 instead.
I honestly think I will see more female drivers with a RS then on the forums. I see a very diverse group driving the ST from seniors above 65, lady and Gent, to people in their teens. I think we have about 7 or 8 girls in our area ST group and a lot in our area Focus group, close to about 30%. We will just have to wait and see once the meets start happening, but again like forums not everyone goes to meets or joins a group who owns one.
My ex girlfriend drove a 2009 Mazdaspeed 3 with a Cobb tune. Soon before we broke up, she mentioned looking to upgrade to something with AWD and mentioned the STI (hatch at the time). I don't know what she ended up getting (if anything), but I still have her contact info so if she winds up with a Focus RS I may just try to get back together with her
My daughter currently drives a 2015 FoST RS3 & I know once I get my RS she will be wanting to drive it. She already hounds me about it weekly; asking when will I be getting it and when can I teach her to drift after I get it! LOL
So there is one more RS female drive to add to the list; just not an owner! The RS will be ALL DAD's Car!!!!
I've been hesitant to make one of these considering the number of them already on the forum, but I have evidence to back it up. Everyone seems to think that the RS is fast and it just feels so planted that you can't "sense" the power. I have always thought that my RS felt slow. I read all of...
this thread is for all the crashed RS's
we all know seen the idiot at the corner in the NE US somewhere
then this red light runner got one in Miami
the latest a 'coyote' took one out in the hill country of TX, it's a Houston car
So I'm curious, I know we see more often then not "my RS just (insert issue here) and now what should I do with it". I know there is a million different reasons why someones RS failed, stock or not. I just want to see how many people have actually had a bigger or hard broke problem on their RS...
I've been anxiously waiting for more FoRS's to make in on the road before starting this thread. It's time to show us what you're done: ie.. added, modified, got your hands dirty or want to show off some new wheels or fixed something minor, hopefully nothing too catastrophic. Photos are a BIG...
What does MMT6 stand for? I believe ST has an MMT6 gearbox so does that mean internals are the same and i can switch parts between an ST box and an RS box for the most part?
Assuming it is, I found thos post to be very informative...
