Who here would like Ford to offer a track pack for future Focus ST's? Then be able to buy those parts for you ST in the future? The purpose of this thread is to:

A: Vote in the poll
B: Lists parts & wishes you want in a track pack

We want to get enough votes to take this to Ford and say "hey, we want this in future cars..." If we have enough support in this thread, then we can do just that!

So no matter what the cost is right now list off parts, wishes, and accessories you want for your Focus ST for the track. I will list them here and your votes in the poll will help us get a track pack! We are the consumer and WE can push changed if we really want to.

Keep this thread ON topic, this isn't a my car is faster than yours thread.

With Respect,
Chad

Part List/Wishes:
Camber Plate
Mechanical LSD
Active Shutter Delete

What Pete said. Track Apps. Brembo Brakes. Maybe some special wheels only available with the track pack.

Is this a track pack that would be installed at the factory (like with the Mustang)? Or is this something along the lines of you order it and the dealer will install it (Mopar stage kits for the Neon SRT4) or you can if you're feeling up to it?

Spend a day racing and you'll appreciate a helmet dryer... those things get hot and you sweat and the get uncomfotably damp by the end of a session. By the next session you want a dry helmet again.

As for the GoPros, you could get away with just three (one front roof, one rearroof, one forward interior), but I thought it'd be fun to have one rearward interior and maybe one front fender or bumper, or maybe even for the pedals.

The K04 would really be nice.

Guys, you never know if we make enough noise Ford just may do this.

From my experience the pak should be:

1. LSD (Quaife)
2. Short Shifter
3. Free Flow exhaust
4. Re-tuned ECU
5. Brembos

Things like this can be bought individually and still warrantied by Ford. Not to mention retrofitted to other iterations of the ST. Heck they could even do a swap Trak Pak ECU for the OEM ECU so they can track who's got them and how well it sells.

I voted no because I'll never push my car the way it was made to be pushed. It will be all highway miles and lots of me admiring it...

A little birdie told me that we can look forward to some of the stuff on folks' lists via FRPP... FRPP catalog proofs have even been printed already.
With factory warranty?

LSD, K04, Brembos, Lighter wheels with wider tires, maybe a beefier intercooler.

That sounds like it would add another $10k to the price of the car. Ford should just bring us over a new version of the RS.

The track pack for the Mustang 5.0 is, what, $2500? I'd imagine a track pack for the ST shouldn't be much more expensive (or different) than this. I think you could squeeze in an upgraded tune, brembos, LSD, and wheels.
