Also re. the rear diff, from what I've read it was a thermal failsafe (I.e. it was overheating and shut itself down). I imagine it will only be an issue with prodigious Tokyo drifting. Also at some stage someone should bring out a diff cooler?
May 30, 2016, 09:16:45 AM
Having gone down the road with the 5, I don't feel like the hassles of constant tinkering and finding boost leaks with this one. Yup, as I say it I'm preparing to eat a hat.
May 30, 2016, 09:15:09 AM
Honestly, my plan is maybe a mild stage 1 tune to get rid of any torque limiting and get a bit of mid-range shunt which most cars try to refine out. In terms of hardware mods catback exhaust for noise that's it.

That RS in the Ring video is on MSS not on Cup2 that i think all press cars had. Lots of squeeling, takes forever to come back. I had same track "joy" with stock Contis, chassis can handle speed but tyres not so.
May 26, 2016, 09:34:40 AM
Torque vectoring, so it thrashes the brakes like with ST. It works but I'd rather a proper diff.
May 26, 2016, 09:00:25 AM
wow, the rs mk3 is open diff standard...... lots of electronic trickery....
May 26, 2016, 08:25:44 AM
Pretty sure the montune stuff for the RS will be covered, at least if you do the stages like you can with the focus and fiesta
May 25, 2016, 05:25:42 PM
Yep, it's a global car so they are only building in just enough. If they made it stupidly beefy it would kill off profits.
May 25, 2016, 04:23:45 PM
Got ya Robbo, I haven't seen anything on it so genuinely curious - Shame they've had issues, would be good to have a lot of headroom to make it mental, but guess that's when you reinforce...

Probably a very mild increase. Ford will have left them a little bit to work with as part of their partnership. I wonder if it will be covered under new car warranty.
May 25, 2016, 02:43:52 PM
What that means in terms of power increase I dont know, but will be interesting to see
May 25, 2016, 02:39:17 PM
I may be wrong but I could have sworn that I read somewhere that montune stuff will basically be intercooler, filter, exhaust and a map, and I could have sworn I also read that there would be the option of an upgraded LSD.
May 25, 2016, 01:58:12 PM
Ford had publically documented issues getting the power and also failures in the process. It held up the final release by a long shot. It will be interesting to see how tuners go with it, but at any rate, it will be a cracking good car, even at stock power.
May 25, 2016, 01:51:46 PM
That's what I generally thought Rocker, at the end of the day there is usally a goal and a budget it's made to and usually it's always dialled a bit back for reliability etc (but doesnt mean a lot of headroom also)
May 25, 2016, 01:35:17 PM
Trying to post a shout and get an error telling me "hacking attempt". Sigh...

Whay are people paying for a log book service these days ?  A service. .
May 25, 2016, 12:27:42 PM
someone posted a pic of a Blue one in Melbourne today (or yesterday). Probably was a press car as they've fenced off an area around Ford's offices today apparently.
May 25, 2016, 11:07:48 AM
i read somewhere that a media car blew head gasket and/or rear differential. Easily modified though to be tougher so dont worry too much
May 25, 2016, 09:08:06 AM
Wait n see Nocturne. None of generic cars is perfectly done, depending of design or budget constrains but still no manifacturer builds them to their almost maximum.
May 25, 2016, 08:57:55 AM
They are only just getting out to people now, so I would give it a couple of months until there are definite numbers. In saying that, Montune already has an upgrade path for it

I think TAGBOG's idea would look good on the left hand side and maybe some side stripes?
