Would have bought another one if they would have had a focus with any power last year when I bought the MS3. Good to see they're getting thier crap together and making some power in the Focus again.
Yeah, that's one of the big reasons I'm hoping Ford does something about torque steer. Although the MS3 is notorious for torque steer, the ST will be close to it in power and torque, so unless Ford does something, it could suffer from the same issues.

I'll ask Jost Capito next Monday when I talk to him if its going to have any sort of "revo-knuvle-ish" system, or at the very least a mechanical LSD...

Please share when you find out!

The lack of info on the ST is getting incredibly frustrating. It doesn't help that I'm dying to get my hands on one. Hell, last night I actually had a dream that Ford put the build and price up for it. You could imagine my disappointment when I woke up.

It has been a little frustrating but at this point we basically know all of the details with the exception of exact packaging and pricing. It will come we just have to be patient

We don't have any performance specs, weight, mpg, a finalized design, revoknuckle (yes/no?), exact release info/date, and, as you mentioned, packaging and pricing.

The list of what we don't know is as extensive as what we do know:
246 hp
new body design
new suspension
19" wheels
center exit exhaust
available recaro seats
available mft
6 speed manual transmission

And all of that is still up in the air, as ford has said the design that we've seen is a pre-production model, and that the US version could differ.

I've never been this anxious for a car, so I don't know if it's standard to wait until customers can place orders to come out with this sort of info. My problem is that I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas, when it's still a year away.... I never really did grow up, huh? Just a little bit more info would make the wait much more tolerable.

I keep asking a salesman I know and get the same answer. No definite yet. He is also leery about it even coming out and if/when it does he feels it will be limited production. If so dealers can ask over sticker like they do with the BOSS 302 Mustangs. He told me had had a customer looking for a '11 Boss 302 and he told me the guy will end up paying $20000 (probably a little exaggeration) over sticker for one, if one is found.

Well it sounds like he is like most salesman and doesn't know jack s**t about the cars themselves. Ford has already confirmed it coming out. They've already had it at the auto show as a production car, and I'm going to be in Dearborn next Monday, at Ford, and I'll be watching one run on a dyno, while asking the development team questions. Hopefully I'll have lots of answers for you guys after that.
