Which cars lead to grin-inducing satisfaction

Fun to drive is a subjective measure—an elusive quality that can mean different things to different people. From our experience, a car can have a very powerful engine and accelerate quickly, but without handling agility, it's not much fun. For us, fun is a combination of factors such as handling response, sound, and the nature of the power delivery that lead to grin-inducing satisfaction. To come up with our list of the most fun cars to drive, we first took a slice according to our scores for handling, steering feel, and body control. Then we looked at acceleration, but found most cars today have plenty of power. Finally, we took a secret ballot to give our testers a chance to capture those elusive subjective qualities, including sounds. Below, we present our picks for the cars that are the most and least fun to drive.

The FocusST.org Top 10 List is Live!

Aug 14, 2014 - 1:37 PM - by NickJ

Image Credit: TR3 Performance


So you think you have the reaction times and a quick enough car to make the Top 10? Prove it. We have been working on this for a while now, and with the help of some absolutely amazing and tireless mods, sda3 and hemiCouple, we have amassed our master list of FocusST.org Track Times.

Only the fastest Focus ST's around the country will make the Top 10. In order to get your name on the list, all you have to do is lay down a fast time at the strip, and then post a photo of your time slip in the Official Focus ST Track Times thread. That is it. Sounds simple right? It is pretty simple to get on the list, but to get into the Top 10... That is going to take a little more effort.

If you post a Top 10 time, simply contact myself, sda3, or hemiCouple via PM and supply us with a link to your posted time slip, and we will get you added to the Top 10!

Detroit Rain WILL Eat Your Focus ST!

Ever have one of those days where things just don't go right? You wake up late, and then stub your toe as you rush to the shower. Later, you spill the cup of coffee leftover from your morning on your favorite jeans only to leave that smell of sticky, stale, annoying lingering around you for the rest of the afternoon. You look out the window to watch the clouds mounting as you plan to leave a little early to miss the rain because the guy on the radio says it is going to rain a lot, so you should try and beat it.

There you sit with your toe still hurting, and the annoying smell of coffee rising from your jeans renewed by the rain . You have had to weave your way home adding miles and miles to your commute due to the fact that you had to finish up some work before you got to leave and your normal route has been ruled as non-navigable passages by the local authorities. How could this day get any worse? I will tell you.

It can be worse by trying to ford a seemingly passable bit of water. Seems like you can do it just like the Mustang GT that you witnessed cross only moments ago. I mean that Mustang is a Ford, and your ST is a Ford, and hell, it is in the name ford. Perfect. Creeping ahead, your car begins to take on water, and then all forward movement is turned into backward floating. BAIL! And not the kind that involves a bucket and a boat. The kind that has you crawling out the passenger window as you flee to safety on what was once the elevated shoulder of a highway and is now a river bank.
