I just wonder how many times the average RS owner will use it. The other modes are all highly usable. Not being a killjoy but a realist. ☺
Ford’s global technical and development chief, Raj Nair, was actually the one who pushed to have it implemented into the Focus RS. There you have it, an accident that turned into something amazing and Australia wants to have it banned. Johnson wasn’t amused with the prospect and claimed that any car cans cause damage.“It wasn’t like that it was more like one of my guys sitting in the car – the lead dynamics guys sitting in the car – and next to him is the guy who is doing the calibration of the all-wheel drive system with a lap-top on his knees.
And they are talking and he says ‘oh let me try this out’ and he tries it and he says ‘oh that’s cool can you give me more of that’ and he gives him more and he says ‘that’s really cool’ and then it starts working.
We put it together and we showed it to Raj and we said ‘this is a nice little trick we can also do with this … with the mode system and the specific set-up for drifting capability.”
