Default I'm the happiest guy in the world!

The name is Focus.

Frank Focus.




I think I found the Rally Cross Race car Ford based the Focus RS on too. Go to about 3:25 or so.

You can thank Alex for that one. I can't remember his username here or I would have tagged him.

All I provided was the car, the service records, and pointed him to all the threads and documentation I've obsessively read over since the RS decided to go Boom.

They be cheap wheels and decently light!

They also held up to the curb well too. I nailed that curb at probably 15-20 and while the wheel was certainly fucked, it actually drove pretty decent without a real shimmy.

So for $119/rim. They are 21lbs each, but the Summer Fordged OEM set is 25lbs each.

I think for a race set of wheels I'd like to get the weight down to the 18lbs area.

The 17x9's on my GTA are about 21lbs I think.

Those blue calipers certainly look good behind them. Bet my blue M brakes would look good behind them too........and they'd certainly be a lot easier to clean

So clearly even with the new HG this is a flawed design. Completely floating cylinders.... This is just going to keep happening.

When do aftermarket blocks roll out

So I made a post asking for related plates.

New Mexico can have 8 characters.

This wins, hands down.

A year later Frank found the 5th drive mode. Blown head-gasket mode.

I'll say it every time. Alex makes great videos!

His Merc video just before this one pointing out a bunch of problems those cars have is awesome too. He knows his shit and he's just as nice in person as he seems in the videos. I hope his channel takes off and a bunch of people can benefit from his advice and knowledge.
