Leno Drives a 420HP Focus RS(Apr 10, 2013)@JB You're right, the revoknuckle suspension would explain why the RS would have a lot less torque steer than the SS. I'm sill skeptical whether or not they gained 115 HP with an intake and a tune though.
Leno Drives a 420HP Focus RS(Apr 10, 2013)I watched it on YouTube. To me, it didn't seem like it had 420 HP. 2nd gear had plenty of traction. I've been in a cobalt ss that had 400 HP and it had dangerous torque steer and no traction until 3rd.
Audi S6 by SKN(Jan 21, 2013)These times are also embarrassing for an AWD vehicle with that much power. A bone stock WRX manages 0-60 in 4.7 seconds with 265 HP. I know the WRX is lighter but it also has 300 less HP.
Audi S6 by SKN(Jan 21, 2013)These figures don't make sense. CarBuzz already advertises the stock version doing 0-60 in 4.5 seconds.
GM Planning BRZ/FR-S Fighter(Jan 21, 2013)RWD and a turbo 4 with similar power to the turbo cobalt and this car would be a blast to drive. GM could probably get that done for around the price of the current BRZ. 150 HP won't cut in when the competitors already have that beat by quite a bit.
