We worked very closely with our local Ford dealer for almost a year to take very early possession of our TB ST2. It arrived on August 27th and it came home the very same day. We immediately began looking over the car and found a few things that needed attention. Much of the wiring harness in the engine bay was not secured. All of the clips were attached to the harness but, the clips themselves had never been attached to the motor or the body. So, we spent some time tidying that up so we could then proceed with properly taking it apart. Then we discovered that 6 of the 8 FMIC grill shutters had either fallen out or had not been properly installed and were just laying in the ducting to the rear of the FMIC. So, we removed the front bumper, which we had planned to do anyway and corrected that as well.

That weekend, with only 48 miles on the car, we took it to it's first Auto-X. We showed it no mercy and to our surprise, it performed outstanding, in fact, we placed 6th out of 46 that day. The car could certainly could use more power to pull it out of the corners but the gearing made it very fast once it got going. Rotation was excellent and with a stiffer rear sway bar I think it will be a great contender.

We're very excited to take advantage of the knowledge and technology gained over the past 3+ years working on the Mazdaspeed 3 and apply the same passion for performance to the Focus platform . We plan to leverage that information, increase our buying power with our current suppliers, generating relationships with new suppliers and continue to to provide the Focus community with the best possible aftermarket parts for many years to come.
