The Ford Focus RS looks like hell of a fun machine. There’s 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque on tap from the 2.3-liter turbocharged four banger under the hood. There’s also a trick four-wheel-drive system that enables you to put the car into a Drift Mode. From what I’ve read online, it seems quite easy to use.
From what I’ve seen online, however, it’s clear that perhaps Drift Mode is a setting best left unused by some. The latest item admitted to the growing library of Drift Mode fail videos comes courtesy of a NY-based ST Owner’s Club. One member of the group brought his new RS out to party with the Focus family, and he showed off his new ride by smacking it into a cliff wall and nearly flipping it.
Boy howdy, those Gymkhana videos are harder to make than you probably thought… but these fail videos are easy to make.
Thanks for the tip, Nathan!
