ST Focus I know Top Gear tested a white Vauxhaull VXR vs a blue Focus RS. They stated the VXR line is always fast and well made. They mentioned the same limited slip/revoknuckle in the RS is used in the VXR. They liked the RS, but the VXR won their races.

I would like to see a dry run vs wet. I am going to guess that race came down to tires more than the vehicles engine. The VXR might have all season vs the RS having summer rated.

And that threw me off as well. He said he was "disapointed". You can't be disapointed unless you didn't want to like it, and then loved it. Or vise versa.

Have you seen this one? Nice to see a ST get around a track.
