ny one raced afainst one of these? I saw one a couple oif nights ago and thought i would see how i faired. I couldnt get past him but he couldnt get away from me either. i just sat on his arse all the way along.
To say the guy was fumin is an understatement. lol
I secretly (not anymore!) love the idea of the Focus RS but need a drive, i havent seen any on the road yet, let alone dealerships! Do you know what the waiting list is? Im guessing theres no demos..at least in the south east.
dont bother with the RS i took an extensive test drive in one, as had a deposit down (now returned) HUgE turbo laaag to the point of getting beat of the lights by slow NA cars, also wrist snapping torque steer that i never felt comfy with. First two gears felt slower than my clio sluggish and hard to get power down third was fun never got into 4th. nice to look at but IMO too purple, also interior had no class but very supportive seats. The steering pulls quite disturbingly too . Its a car you can never extract the potential from on uk rds, track car.
ohh i raced a ITR on snake pass ages ago. They fly on the straights, and handle well good. He kept overtaking on dble white lines so kept pulling quite a lead on me, i caught him with spirited driving, and on slow tight corners i was all over it. Its a rocket though. pretty similar speeds
Rob I heard the shipments where all bought up for this year so youd be waiting a while, never drove one but my mate is an engineer for RS in Northampton and he doesnt rate it, not really a good advertisement.
