Focus RS Technical Presentation


Recommended Posts

Focus RS technical presentation. The link is below.  Here are some of the highlights:


1. Aero driven design, prioritizing zero lift at the front and rear along with fine mesh hexagonal grill for max cooling.

2. Bespoke chassis and brakes, with 350mm front rotor and 4 piston Brembo's.

3. Three wheel options, including forged lightweight option with Pilot Sport Cup Michelin tires.

4. Vehicle dynamics and chassis tuning really woke up when stiffening of key local areas was implemented.

5. Static torsional stiffness increased 23% above regular Focus.

6. Key areas like rear subframe stiffness was increased 200%, combined contributed to a "significant increase in dynamics performance".

7. Dynamic torque vectoring AWD without a center differential can split 100% to rear and 100% to left or right and is sensor monitored 100 times/sec.

8. Drive modes interact with all major systems to optimize for different needs include (6) selectable: normal, sport, drift, AWD, track and launch mode.

9. Sold in 32 markets, available in the spring of 2016
