    Ford ST Omnibus thread--FoST, FiST, FoRS, etc

    Certainly makes the ST look like a steaming pile of doo-doo. Can't wait to hear specifics on it.

    According to latest indications, the third-generation Focus RS is again likely to be front-wheel drive. It will draw its power from a turbocharged 2.3-litre, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine seen in the recently launched Mustang.

    A power output of about 330bhp has been mooted for the RS, while a limited-slip differential and Ford’s innovative, torque-steer-reducing RevoKnuckle front suspension system will again feature in its mechanical specification.

    Now I can say this... It's AWD. (And 320hp).

    The other significant number we don’t have yet is the RS’s weight. The additional bulk of the four-wheel-drive system means the RS is certain to tip the scales at more than the 3234 pounds of our long-term Focus ST.
    Get that weak shit off my track

    At a guess we're looking at >3400lb then.

    Is it going to use the same open deck 2.3 as the Mustang?

    Ken Block hoons one about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qy-mhyUAaqE

    I assume that isn't the stock exhaust, but anything is possible...

    (SRT-4 had no moofler after the cat, IIRC. Maybe this is the same? )
    Whoomah!

    My Mazdaspeed3 was the same way. No muffler, just 2 resonators.
