What RPM does the turbo kick in, or is it more even feeling throughout the RPM ranges?
I hope you at least have something fun to drive around in the mean time.The twin scroll turbo gives this RS a unique feel, so no I can't compare it to anything I have driven in the past. All I can say it was that good I have ordered an RS, the downside is I have to wait a year until it's delivered.
One of the cars I enjoyed most was my Sierra RS 4x4 built at 220 bhp and rebuilt after 90,000 miles to 300 bhp. I owned it from new and had it over nine years and when I traded it in, it had covered 186,000 miles. It never let me down in all the time I owned it. The new RS Focus drives very simular, I think in the States you will be amazed at the handling on a minor road with lots of bends. The cornering is flat with very little body roll.I hope you at least have something fun to drive around in the mean time.
What other cars have you owned in the past? Anything along the lines of performance the RS is like?
