It will be good to see what you think as you are a past fiesta st owner and by luck or good judgement I think it is a dam good drive now it is finished .I will take you up on this :up:
The difference here is the back moves out under power, not lift off oversteer...and to get serious angle in an RS you've got to drive like a total hooligan with little mechanical sympathy or regard for the law. Appreciate I've not met Mark but those 3 things don't seem to fit.
I had a minor wobble recently when I was thinking, yep, let's get this done, FPM375...then I came to my senses and realised that it really doesn't need it, that I'd much rather leave the money in the bank, and that to the true RS fanatic that I want to sell my car to in a decade or more's time...even though it's warranty friendly a Mountune enhanced car is not standard.It will be good to see what you think as you are a past fiesta st owner and by luck or good judgement I think it is a dam good drive now it is finished .
I have just had a good afternoon with a friend in his fk2 civic type r And down the B2166 runcton to Chichester and he thinks it's a bit of a monster even in my hands with my tiny driving talent but would be good to see what it can do in the hands of someone with some driving skill :smile:
Do you have any plans for the focus RS and a mountune upgrade ?
It makes it a far more capable car...but...and all the reviews hint toward this...it makes it a bit less fun at sane speeds.Hmmm, Evo Mag reckon the Quaife equipped RS Edition thingy is what it should have had a standard.
I did get some proper angles...honest...but the Forum Police on STOC and RSOC take down any video they deem to promote anything even slightly irresponsible...so this one was edited down to some of the more minor twitches.
Noted...it's kind of relevant for the 'community' though...although not so much now that FSA letters have started landing on door mats.Good video mark. The first half of the video went on a bit though!
Also what’s the ride like? Seems you’re bouncing about in there quite a bit
I suppose if I owned one it want to hear your ramblings! I jest.Noted...it's kind of relevant for the 'community' though...although not so much now that FSA letters have started landing on door mats.
The ride is choppy! I get criticised a lot for constantly working the wheel...the reality is I'm doing no such thing...I'm just bouncing around so much that, as I always have both hands at a quarter to three, it looks like I'm putting almost continual correction inputs in. It doesn't help being on bumpy Sussex downs B-roads either.
It does, more than you know.Was the RS sold world wide or just the US/UK & Poland? Never watched the rest of that video mate, the jumper was too much
Broken roads that are long overdue a complete skim and resurface. On conventional, commuting to work, roads it's firm but nothing like this.Must admit, i thought you were as the steering wheel was properly moving around (as were you) and i don't ever recall it being quite that bad in mine?!

I follow that company on Instagram, he has some cracking stuff. He has just sold a RS500 cosworth.
Not yet. Pete's a merchant seaman so he's offshore quite a lot...twice now we've had to cancel dates because of the weather or him finding himself shipped away somewhere at very short notice. The current plan is June/July time.
I actually don't find it all that bad. I think around Goodwood which has a nice surface it should be OK. Will it be better? For me I doubt it...I like body roll and feel.lol, yeah heard multiple owners say there's literally zero point to that setting even on track.
They're good...basically I have 3mm on the front axle and 5mm on the back. A swap around, a couple of thousand more road miles, and a trackday and they'll be done. Much as I want to stick to OEM all the way with Michelin Pilot SuperSports I keep hearing good things about the PilotSport 4 tyres so I may give them a bash after the trackday.If it wasn't you'd need to buy shares in the local chiropractor!
