The FocusRS forums is a good place to look. There's a section for NY area where guys try to meet up.

My son purchased a new blue RS last week and we went to visit him Monday. He let me drive it to lunch. Holy mother of doG! I realize I couldn't own one of these and keep a clear license, but it would be a fun two weeks. My old ZX-4 SES manual will have to suffice.

Nice lol. We kinda did the same thing.

Tell him (if he doesn't know already) to sign up at FocusRS.org. Everything he ever wanted to know about the RS is on that site.

The RS Academy sold out in 72 hours on Jan. 25th when it went live. We are booked to go in June.

Make sure he knows about it if his dealership neglected to tell him.

He's gonna love that car. It's badass IMHO. Wife and I LOVE ours!!

Picked up a 2017 Frozen White RS this weekend. I paid $720 over MSRP. The dealer was asking for $15k over.

I'm impressed and very happy with the RS, and also have a renewed respect for what Ford accomplished with the SVT and ZX4 ST all those years ago, when it comes to handling.

What wheel/tire setup did you get? Congrats on the RS.

Take it easy for the first 1K don't go over 4.5K RPM so they say. Depends on who you ask lol.

Unplug the fake engine sound is the first mod you need to do. It's the plug farthest away from you when you open the hatch.

I just went with the base wheels and tires. It's got the RS2 package and no other options. I had the same tires on my '07 Focus and they transformed that car.

I took it pretty easy for the first 300 miles, and am starting to play with it more now. I'm breaking it in like a motorcycle, stressing it a little more every 200 miles or so until 1,000.
