You better bring proof if you are going to say things like this. I have read nothing about the revo-knuckle being in the ST, but if it is, its a completely different transmission, and it would not have a Torsen, as its a new completely different trans. (I would have a form of LSD in it however.)

Anyway, proof of revo-knuckle please.

Ford is going to use the revo-knuckle on the ST. Don't ecpect a brake-based, electronic "limited-slip" system on the ST. A hi-po car shoundn't use electronics to over come mechanical inefficiencies. Making torque steer go away=revo-knuckle. Speed3 is the poster child of evil torque steer in my mind. This has nothing to do w/ a transmission. It's all about putting all the power thru the front wheels. Punch up Revo-knuckle!!!!!!

Read much?? I asked for proof, you are just spouting stuff. Ford has not released anything stating that the ST will have revo-knuckle, they have only hinted at it having a mechanical diff as opposed to the electronic torque vectoring on base models. So basically they have stated it'll have an LSD similar to the speed3, not revo-knuckle.

Again, since you have a hard time reading:

WHERE IS YOUR PROOF.

Posted via FF Mobile Found what I read. Here you go Kyle, read this.

http://blog.caranddriver.com/ford’s-...wn/#more-36511

"So does that mean the Focus ST will get the RevoKnuckle suspension? Capito is noncommittal, but hints at something related. “What is clear is that everything we’ve learned we will use. Not necessarily with the same parts but the same results.” Capito also explains that, for performance vehicles, a mechanical solution is the only way to solve powertrain or handling issues. Don’t expect a brake-based, electronic “limited-slip” system on the ST, like the one included on all other Focii. “A high-performance car shouldn’t use electronics to overcome mechanical inefficiencies.”"

So pretty much we'll be getting a mechanical lsd. We wont be getting revoknuckle in the ST though....we'll be getting revoknuckle 3.

This is as proof as your going to get, but stop yelling at felixthecat, since half of what he is saying was direct quotes.

I've read that drkknight, I've read everything, that doesn't say anything about it getting revo-knuckle, it only states it won't have an electronic "limited-slip". So he is still spouting hear-say rumors.

It doesnt say it will have an LSD either, we can only base this off of Capitos words of suggestion, and he suggest a similar feature to revoknuckle being used just as much as he suggests a lsd will be used.

Also why were you talking about transmissions, revokunckle has nothing to do with the trans.

"Jim Farley: Tom, you need to get to know the Revo knuckle. 250hp FWD and no torque steer. This is a new technology that allows a FWD car to handle like an AWD car with oversteering."
