    Tanner and Greg tore those cars up. At one point at the finish line we smelled a burnt clutch, then coolent and than Tanner said the parking brake was to gone to do any more power slides. Not to mention a tiny ramp in the street to bang them up. They had no miles on them and are supposed to never be driven again.

    I'll add video's later this week.

    I think it would look better lowered with some different rims. Not a fan of those wheels at all... The interior looks awesome though. Is it me or is that model of the engine missing from that auto show thread missing the turbo?

    Looks like a good time man thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for spreading the ST love. Gotta say man, I'm jealous. Pretty cool PR move on Ford's behalf.

    SAE numbers were released and just like the 2013 GT500 they make more than Ford originally advertised. 252hp and 270ft lbs up from 247 and 266. Estimated weight is around 3100-3200lbs.

    Regular focus is 2,900 lbs. I would hope the ST is not much heavier. Bloggers got to ride back to the hotel in it. Boost comes in hard at 2,000.

    Yeah, that was just early prototype estimates so I don't think it will be much more but it does have a lot more equipment on it.

    What an awesome once in a lifetime experience. Your photos really tell the story well. Nicely done. I do like the new Focus ST. IMO Ford did a great job with the design.

    Had a great time. Filming lasted from 8:15 pm to 1:30 am. Commercial should be ready in two weeks for E3 and x-games. I might be in the commercial at the finishline. They may use my footage too. They set all he blog winners at different locations to capture videos. I was near the launch, the broken water main and finishline.

    Ford gave us all an ST shirt, ST Key chain and $200 meal card that I still have $69 bucks on. My wife knows I'll be getting the yellow ST for sure. Out of the 8 bloggers. 6 had them preordered.


    We won this opportunity by talking to much on the Ford ST on FaceBook.

    Oh Sid you wouldn't want these PP's. They beat the poo out of them. Smelled coolest, fried clutches and Tanner said the parking brake was only good for parking now.
