    Hey!

    I'm an immigrant from Focaljet and other Focus enthusiast forums (RedComet on most of those), so I'm not entirely foreign to the Ford sport compact scene. Went from a 2012 Focus SE Sport (With Steeda & FSWERKS gear on it) to a 2014 Tuxedo Black (w. matte black striping) Fiesta ST. No Recaros, no nav, no sunroof, either. Didn't need any of those, so I figured I'd save some money. Now I'm proudly in the ecoboost camp. I'm a big fan of late 80s/90s Japanese sportscars, and Euro-styled hatches. The latter means I was sold dead-to-rights when I heard the FIesta ST was coming to the US. Hoping to get set-up with a COBB AccessPort and some other goodies once time/money allow me to focus on that. Got big plans for this little thing. :D

    Nice. Really digging that stripe. Want something similar on my PB, but not sure what color, thinking dark gray or black reflective. :). I too came from a focus, first a 2012 SE, then a 2013 ST.

    Welcome! Nice to see another CT owner. We'll have to do a local meetup soon.

    Edit: The stripe looks awesome on the black!

    It would be cool to have several FiST's show up, even if not all of them drive. You can always jump in for the fun runs at the end.

    Will do, Randy! Always good to see a familiar face in the aftermarket, to be sure.

    By the way, I thought there was a no-spectators rule in place for CART's autox events?

    If you know someone racing, you can sign in as their "crew".

    I will try and be there tomorrow morning. Look for two women in a black FiST and you should have no trouble spotting us, lol. I might not be behind the wheel though, depending on when I get to sleep tonight.


    Edit: going to have to try for a different weekend. Just a little too last minute.

    I forgot to update this thread when I got this for the ST...

    Currently running the 93 Octane Stage 1 v102 map (and occasionally the Economy v102 map). Love the increased power and low-end response from the car; it spools like crazy now, but still returns excellent mileage.
