King of the foci

I have to say that the focus ST is the king of the focus. I was driving home for lunch today when I past a 06 focus SES. The guys eyes lit up when he seen my car and started tailing me. Also had a ZX3 scoping out too. Made me proud that I have my focus ST. So far in my town I have only seen one other ST and that was only once. For those who have never had the luxury to drive one, try it. You wont regret it.

You forgot the "V" in between the "S" and the "T". Close though.

^ if your ST is still stock, it can't out handle the SVT, and the SVT has more HP from the factory, making any drag race a drivers race.

Personally i think the ST is the better platform for moddifying, but the SVT is the better all around stock package.

For a moment there i thought he was talking about the Focus ST in europe....but yeah...the stock ST may run with a taller geared SVT in a straight line....but come the corners and needing to stop.....that lil V makes a biiiig difference.

I will laugh my ass off if this turns into another one of Those Threads.

I still havent driven an ST yet, so I wont comment on the drivetrain. However, after having finally sat in the EAP Recaro seats, I'm pretty confident those alone raise the car above the rest of the lineup, nevermind everything else. Those who have them may agree; I sure want a damn set now.

Oh, and just to start some shit, technically the ST is the king of the Foci since the SVT is no longer produced. (well in America stleast)
