2014 Ford Focus ST Track Day Review Sandown Raceway With Unique Red Accent

blasting On To The Local Hot Hatch Scene In 2012 The Ford Focus ST Is Soon To Be Updated And There's A Hardcore RS Version Not Far Behind. So, With That In Mind We've Come Here Today To A Sand Down Raceway To Take Part In One Of Our Weekend Warrior Track Tests Ford's Replacement For The XR 5 Turbo The Focus ST Cost A Little Over 38 Grand And Comes With A Super Talky Turbocharged Two-liter Engine With 184 Kilowatts And 340 Newton Meters Outside It's Highlighted By A Large Honeycomb Grill These Cool St Badges A Funky Central Exhaust Pipe And 18-inch Alloy Wheels Wrapped In Goodyear Eagle F1 Tires Inside There Are Chunky Recaro Bucket Seats More St Logos And Alloy Pedal Covers Time For The Fun Stuff Now According To The Spec Sheet Pete Power Isn't Until Five Thousand Rpm, But Pete Talk Is Accessible From As Long As 2,000 Rpm And You Can Feel That As Soon As You Hit The Circuit And The Focus ST Gets A Sportier Suspension Tune Compared To Your Normal Locust Here You Can Feel That It's A Little Bit More Strapped Down, But It's Still.

I Roll In And Very Lively Rear End On The Thing And At Least On Those Opening Laps The Brakes Feel Quite Good Under Foot All Fuckers St's Come Exclusively With A Six-speed Manual Transmission Now That Little Boys In My Heard There Was A Little Bit Of Wheelspin And Unlike Cars Like The Began RS From Red Oh Ford Opted To Not Fit The Focus ST With A Limited-slip Front Differential Which Means All Their Power And All That Talk Is Just Being Hammered Home To The Front Wheels Without Much Help From Anything No Ms Straight Here At Sandown It's Really Not An Issue At All, But You Can Feel Coming Out Of The Corners There Is A Bit Of Talk To You And You Get A Bit Of A Chair From The Old The Steering's The Steering's Pretty Good The Steering's Quite Responsive There's Not Tons Of Feedback There, But It Will Tip In Again Apart From A Bit Of A Troop Of Wheel Spin The Combination And The Package Is Actually Quite Good It Would Good Three Gauges On The Dash One Out Oil Temp Ears Pressure And Also Oil Pressure It's Always Good To Keep On Things Like That Particularly, If Your Drink Subtract Diet Especially, If It's A Royal Child Like This They're Read Minds Too Sharp 7000rpm Look There 160 We Come Down To Main Straight Moves Around A Little Bit It's A Little Bit Pogo Stick A Little Bit Wobbly, But Nothing Too Bad The Brakes Are Starting To Get A Little Bit Warm Move The Pedal A Little Bit Further To The Floor, But Again It Is Holding Up Quite Well And. So, One No NE, But. I Want Look Straight Ahead For This Bit Will Chip In Here That's For A Little Bit Of Motion Hop Down Here Again Those Brakes Just Started To Get A Little Bit Out Of Their Comfort Zone, But That Engine Noise Is Excellent Too You've Got The The Induction Sound Coming Straight Into The Cabin And Well You Know It's Done Intentionally It's Kind Of A Good Thing Pc Can Actually Hear What's Going On And You Can Hear When Those Rebs Rise When You Are Getting A Bit Of Real Spit Still Cheaper Than A Volkswagen Golf GTI And The Renault Megane RS The Ford Focus ST Remains A Lively And Gutsy Little Car And It Really Impressed Us Out There On The Circuit Today Sure The Tires Got A Little Bit Warm And The Brakes Got A Little Bit Smoky, But For An Occasional Trackday Blast It's More Than Capable Actually.

I Reckon We Might Go Out For One More Lap. I'm Not Mistaken That Is A Rav4 Correct Yep.
