Shout out to all the 3rd gen ST fam. My father was one of those upset people in the 70’s after they discontinued his favorite car, he doesn’t like being referred to as British though lmao. And yeah I have a great and healthy relationship with my dad so suck it Pumphrey.

I had an ST170 which has the same HP as the svt, about 50 horses short of being quick but so much fun to drive, so much easily controllable lift off oversteer.👍👍

I grew up in Wayne michigan next to the plant that built these. We have owned many focii since they came out. My mom's 2005 zx4, 2012 hatchback, 2018 ST, my brother's 2003 SVT, my 2002 zx3 and my 2005 wagon. These cars run and run forever. The only issues we've ever had were alternators and worn out clutches. Thats it.

Hey James, you forgot to mentions the Focus Mk2 RS500 also came with a special front suspension design called the Revoknuckle. The same technology used in the 2017 Honda Civic Type R. Look into it
