J.D. Power and Associates, ‎May‎ ‎22‎, ‎2015

Fast Facts:

•Updated interior and exterior styling
•5-door hatchback body style
•Retuned chassis
•Front-wheel-drive powertrain
•Redesigned optional 18-in. alloy wheels
•LED accents lights
•New Magnetic Metallic paint color
•USB port offers faster charging
•Added interior storage and standard features
•252 turbocharged horsepower
•EPA-estimated to deliver up to 32 mpg on the highway


Until the new and highly anticipated 2016 Focus RS makes its way to the streets, the tuner-oriented ST will remain the top-dog hot rod of the Ford Focus lineup. For 2015, this 5-door hatchback sports revised front and rear styling, revamped interior with updated controls and extra storage capacity, and an entertaining 252-horsepower EcoBoost engine joined by a stick-shift gearbox. Those without the ability to row their own gears--or the interest in learning--need not apply.

Exterior Features:

Like all 2015 Focus variants, the ST hatchback receives revised exterior styling highlighted by sleeker headlights and taillights, as well as a redesigned hood and fog lights. Helping to separate the 2015 Focus ST from the rest of the pack is a lower body kit that gives the car a more aggressive appearance, along with a choice of standard or optional 18-in. alloy wheels that provide a glimpse at red brake calipers, and the exclusive center-mounted hexagonal exhaust tips. Other exterior bits include a unique grille insert, power turn-signal mirrors, and a rear spoiler.

Interior Features:

Inside, the 2015 Ford Focus ST proves that it's more than simply a base model tricked out with a powerful engine. The list of standard features is long and includes such notable mentions as push-button start, racing-inspired flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum trim, fast-charging dual USB ports, programmable MyKey keyless entry system, 6-speaker sound system, and more.

PINKS: All Out Invites Us to Rockingham this July 4th

Apr 22, 2015 - 10:10 AM - by NickJ

Do you guys remember the "PINKS" TV show? The show where Rich Christensen would line up racers at a drag stip and they would race each other for pink slips. and then later, they did "PINKS: All Out" where racers would compete in brackets for cash prizes? The show ran on SPEED and also on FOX for a minute. It was canceled years ago, and the concept bounced around for a little while. Well, Rich has acquired the concept from FOX and is bringing it back!

The owner of Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina is going to open up his raceway for a July 4th celebration of raw power, shiny paint, and testosterone. The dragway will host the PINKS crew for a taping during the July 4th weekend.

Now, you might be asking why I am telling you about a television show that is taping in NC. Well, our little site here has been extended a personal invite from Rich and Brian Bossone. They have offered a 20% racer registration discount code when you sign up for the weekend. Simply add PAO in the checkout and you will receive the discount.

They are doing a grassroots promotion of this event as they don't have a large buget to get this thing off the ground. I think it is pretty cool that they are reaching out to the forum to go straight to the car enthusiast source.

This year is a TEST for future shows, and they need all the racer and fan support they can get. Support this event and maybe next season will be coming to track near you. They will be leaving room for group gathering areas or self run car shows at the show as well. It should be a great weekend for car enthusiasts!

I, for one, hope that they keep the show about racing and don't let it devolve into the drama-fest that the old show ended up being about.


“The fact that racers and fans still want PINKS is both an honor and extremely ...humbling,”... [Read More]

Ford’s Fresh Faced Hot Hatch

By Luke Vandezande, Mar 26, 2015
Michael Lewis wrote “Liar’s Poker” in 1989 after rubbing shoulders with the “big swinging d****” working at Salomon Brothers, a Wall Street investment bank that gained notoriety for its work with mortgage-backed securities. It’s an excellent story.

Guys like them treated money like you and I do Kleenexes. From his account, I imagine they would look at something like the upcoming Ford GT as a casual purchase and in some senses very little of that has changed.

Needless to say, I am no Wall Street banker but it’s comforting to know that there is a wealth of performance vehicles today that are remarkable in both their capability and attainability.

Halos Are For Walls, Hot Hatches Are For Garages

The Focus ST is a perfect example. Ford refreshed it this year with a new front fascia and lights along with optionally available racing stripes and wheels. The center stack is supposedly different but I only know that from reading Ford’s press literature and it gets a new “flat-bottom” steering wheel to make sure that people bigger than me can fit. Seriously, it’s a tight squeeze and I might as well represent the “lollypop guild…”

Anyway, none of that really matters because the Focus ST is still exactly what you will remember reading about in 2012 when it debuted: a rip-roaring riot of a car that really doesn’t cost much.

Ford managed to achieve that by dropping its 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine into the Focus with 252 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque that should make it torturously difficult to control. Except it isn’t.

Still So Much Fun

As you might remember, the Focus ST gets something Ford called its “torque steer compensation system” that basically reduces the electric power steering assistance in the direction of the wheel. It works to nullify the side effects that come from sending entirely too much torque to the axle that is already busy governing your trajectory.

You can feel it... [Read More]
