boolocks the said the diff in the old rs was the way forward and would chage the way of the fwd cars and look at that on the the back roads

i dont think it will keep up with an x in the real world ie where they are meant for on the good old back roads

dont get me wrong i like the look off the rs just a shame ford dont do it in 4wd then it would be wort looking at but untill then its evos only for me

3 reasons from ford

1- They believe that this set up will handle as well.
2- Wanted to keep the cost at £24999
3- Wanted to Keep the drive comfort of a fwd.

I dnt think the evo 10 fq 300 will be enough, to be honest. The rs is gettin amazing reviews.

I cant see the new FRS being on par with even the FQ300. The trick diff in the old RS was fine on a smooth surface like the track, but on the open road it was a handfull. With the new FRS being substantially more powerful than its predecessor its not going to be much different IMO.

Where are the manufacturers going to stop at putting big power through the front wheels?

You'll get a rough idea on the 30-130mph day, my MK1 FRS is around 300/310bhp (although nearly 200kg lighter) so should give some sort of indication given the new FRS is supposedly better set up!:smthumbup

Kerb weight on new FRS is 1465kg!

I don't think it would stay with a X on the bends. The X must be the best handling Evo straight out of the box.

A X FQ360 would be enough a X FQ300 would not feel as fast given the different drivetrain both cars have. there is a link to a video comparison in the Gallery section.

I’d say the 30-130 will give a biased result in favour of the RS;
1. Rolling start so no wheel spin off the line
2. Straight line acceleration so no test of cornering ability

Biased?????:confused:

That's the whole idea of the event isn't it?

The latest copy of evo magazine has the RS listed as:

1467kg
208 bhp/ton
0-60 in 5.9
Max 163

Compare that with Evo X 300 (again from Evo for fair comparison)
1560kg
189 bhp/ton
0-60 in 4.6
Max 155

So by these stats you need at least an X330 to be about the same (211 bhp/ton).

I thought they had in gear times for the RS but not yet it seems.

They also have a tuned 400bhp Audi S3 in the same edition with some very quick looking stats.

Continuing my stato theme (from letstorque.com)

RS

0-100 - 12.52s
60-100 - 7.06
1/4 mile - 13.76
Term spd - 104.82

X 300

0-100 - 14.56
60-100 - 9.09
1/4 mile - 14.18
Term spd - 98.6

X 330

0-100 - 12.53
60-100 - 7.68
1/4 mile - 13.53
Term spd - 103.88

I will let you draw your own conclusions...

I do quite like the new RS, but at 300bhp through the front wheels, it isn't going to cope with any more power upgrades very well.

Whereas the Evo with 4wd can easily handle 400+

Too much power on the RS for fwd
Have to say lads, it's a load of rubbish this "300bhp through the front wheels" malarky, as said mine is the MK1 FRS and has no problems with this power, been on many track days, drive it every day and have done the Ring twice don't be led astray by magazine talk!;)
