There's a guy at our local autocross that runs one of these. It's pretty bad ass!

yeah thats the thing....u say u like the way ur focus feels...but if u go with rwd....its going to be a whole new car...so it kinda defeats the purpose. If u pull it off though that would be awsome b/c now u got a rwd focus. But if i were u and wanted rwd id just go buy a rear wheel drive car, b/c this is going to cost u a hefty penny.

Of all the articles I have read, they said that the v8 F handles the same if not better becaus of the weight distribution.
