Exclamation Matt Farah, The FIRST 2016 Focus RS Owner In L.A.

"Woop Woop! Focus RS Order Banks are open and my order is in! Galpin Ford hooking it up for me with the first one in LA! Nitrous Blue, RS2 Package, Black 19" Forged Wheels, Pilot Super Sport Tires. Drift mode, engage." - Matt Farah, The Smoking Tire

Back in October when order books opened, Matt became first in LA to sign off on one. Exciting news for those familiar with Matt and his well known automotive review YouTube Channel: The Smoking Tire

and I bet he takes it straight to COBB tuning. He was super impressed with their stage 3 ecoboost mustang. Its making 400 lb-ft of torque at the WHEELS not sure about the crank...

You bet.

He has a good background on some of the latest fords that are most relevant to us Focus guys, so hearing what he has to say will be interesting, especially about where improvements can be made.

No idea, but if i really wanted a mustang, I wouldn't want to pay anything over a few grand, when it comes to the RS... i'd be willing to push for a bit more.
