It maybe an AWD and they just have it set to were most of the power is going to the rear wheels.

Looks cool but wouldn't RWD take away from the focus handling? It was designed as a front wheel drive car. It would be good for drifting but my question is in regards to autocrossing.

Agreed i just watched that and i would LOVE to convert my ST over to RWD it would be a BLAST to boot around town in, regardless if it wasn't designed as RWD train car.

Same car here: http://media.putfile.com/A1-Rallysport-Focus-Santa-Pod

RWD Cosworth Focus 500bhp.

It eventually got into the 10's but was totalled on the road.
Same guy later built a Fiesta 4 x4 Cosworth even more bhp.
