The MK3 forum is not a technical forum, it's just about MK3 Focuses in general which the Focus ST is. Personally I find it annoying how many threads get moved on this board for no good reason. It's really annoying when you go to look for them. I would have posted it here if I wanted it here.

Unless it's bouncing the tires ALL the way through first and making them scream for mercy if not on perfect road in second, there's power to be put down.
Hahaha. Well, the donor ST that you drove must have been on valet mode or had all the electronic nannies engaged. The one I tested before plunking down the money on my SEL was ridiculously fun and seemed to break traction at-will below 30 MPH.

Well if it's any consolation, Cars.com didn't cover the Shelby American ST in their report. Perhaps it is tomorrow after all. From what I read on their site, there was nothing more remarkable than the 2014 Corvette. Supposedly the Dart will be getting a 9 spd transmission. Who wants to hold their breath until that comes out? oo oo ooo we can see who lives longer! People holding their breath for 8 spd RWD trans behind V8s, or people waiting on the Dart to get 9 spds! We'll call it that ChryCo No Brain or No Breath contest!!

I want it to be the RS. But Shelby. I mean, Shelby did dabble in the small car market with Chrysler back in the 80's. Those cars were mean little things.
