      Yeah, hold off on that too, until you see the car.

      Ken just likes to stir things up ;)

      I'll get the numbers for you, and I'm assuming you'll be quite surprised... FTR we're talking only the ST versions, and internationally, right?



      I understand and respect that, believe me. But...

      I explained why the Fiesta flares come first (a manufacturer willing to front over $10k in mold fees) and how the Focus flares weren't developed with future production in mind. Other than that, I...

      In the context of what was quoted before, I was discussing street cars, and that an AWD ST would not have been as entertaining to drive as the FWD version that is sold.



      I don't. But again, in...

      Thanks. And it's awesome to know the TrackSTer had such an effect :beer:

      For what it's worth, Dallas (coneklr) was only relaying what he was told. We very much want to offer those parts (FTR it...

      Ah, yes. But the ST doesn't have 330-hp, right? Regardless, what you quoted from me was in regard to a Golf R vs. Focus RS hypothetical comparison. Each car has AWD so any thoughts about FWD weren't...

      No offense, but I think you're missing the crux of the argument here. It's not about power, but rather the way in which it's delivered.

      Some people prefer the traditional power curve and sound of...

      Exactly. Direct injection fueling and modern engine management techniques means that if a manufacturer wants to make a turbocharged engine behave like an NA engine, they can. That big wallop of...

      There may be a "base" version of the car but no way in hell will there be a version with no Recaros.



      I know, right? The concept holds so little appeal.

      Oh, the irony :P

      Yup, I saw that. No doubt the 7 is leaps and bounds more tossable than previous Rs, but it's just not going to offer what the RS will. The RS oversteers under power.

      And I'm not talking out of my...

      Yeah, but let's look at that for sec.

      You know, Ford could have spent all those development dollars on creating a more Golf R-competitive interior rather than creating the world's most dynamic transverse-engine AWD system, a larger...

      It's a global car/release, so different people using different ratings (PS, HP, BHP, KW, etc).

      The cars don't even begin production till this winter, so there's still ECU, suspension, and AWD...
