If it's not really about tuning or wiring. Then it belongs in here.

Ford have just released news of their new Ford Focus RS, 2.3 EcoBoost, AWD all in a great looking package. As a Ken Block fan boy, I'm super excited about it.

I'm surprised it's taken so long to go 4WD, I've not really looked into it but is it using the part time drive system like most manufacturers are opting for?

There's a few of the older focus RS's going standalone here in the UK and with the aftermarket traction control and the factory diff they say there's no need for 4WD

I have to be honest and say nope I'm not excited at all.

Having worked in a Ford dealership and most vehicles being small Euros, the Falcon isn't at all popular in Australia anymore, I found the cars to be overly complex, difficult to work on, and simply not suited to Australian conditions. While I am sure this new model is a great car history has shown specialised euro cars don't suit the Australian market.
