Had the pleasure of going to the shop and talking with Mr. Grunes last year. Lots of awesome stuff, though too bad something like this wasn't there.
Goodies from Heatshield Products
Lava Turbo Shield by Heatshield Products
Lava Mat from Heatshield Products
Inferno Shield from Heatshield Products to keep the heat off the alternator
Thermaflect Sleeve from Heatshield Products.
I'm not the biggest fan of that big rossion logo in the middle of the hatch

Saw one for the first time in Helen Georgia for a car show. Spoke to the owner for a bit, said it drove better than a ferrari and that's why he chose it.

Update: Big changes with the 2.0L track car. They integrated the new '13 Focus ST Ecoboost 2.0L GTDI engine. Quote from rossion
Well, I am sure our friends must be wondering what happened to our race car and why it has not as yet hit the track. About three weeks ago a new 2013 Ford Focus 2.0L EcoBoost motor arrived at our doorstep from Ford Racing Technologies.
During the tuning phase of the 2.0L Duratec, we were contacted by Ford Racing Technologies requesting that we integrate the new 2013 Ford Focus ST Ecoboost 2.0L GTDI engine and six speed Getrag manual gearbox. Of course we obliged and are happy to report that the integration is complete. Final tuning will be completed by Ford Racing Technologies.
Over the past few days i've been hearing some rumors that rossion is currently out of business. Some people i know in the noble/rossion community told me from reliable sources that the shop is empty, the online store is down, and currently they do not have any employees on the payroll as of right now. Also they are not answering any phone calls either. I won't be updating this thread anymore unless they come back. I hope this isn't true. I'll continue to try and contact them.

The rossion is truly an awesome/fun car and it would be sad to see the company go out of business. Sad, also that all the potential plans for the Q1 could be no more.

I just received an email from my parts guy at rossion explaining to me that they're in the process of moving to new facility and they're not out of business.
I guess i should think twice before listening to these reliable sources in the future.
It probably will take some time for them to make any progress with the race car in the near future because of this move. As soon as i receive updates, i'll post them.
