What's up Evo? I know I haven't been round much lately, I've had a lot on my plate.. But just thought I'd update the world of Evo what's going on..
Firstly I no longer own an escort.. :(
The Rs has had a fair bit of cash out of me over the past few months.. And still kept throwing problems at me so after a feul pump failure while taking my son to a football course.. Enough was enough.
So the escorts gone.. It's replacement however is this...

great car.. i had one for some time.. only thing its the very common faults of alternator failure and oil diaphragm failure are both very expensive to replace.. and dont do too many standing starts as the clutch just about handles the standard power :o/

doesnt everyone change for an rs clutch because of this?

Ever noticed that putting "anal" in front of some ford model names makes them sound funny? Fiesta, Probe, Ranger. Explorer, Maverick etc... lol

Shame the RS is gone, if I lived closer I would have snapped that Off you!
Nice focus though.

How have you found it after living with it for a few weeks now? I hear they respond well to chipping (or the switchable map boxes that folk use now).

Not bad tbh.. I don't think I'm gonna do much engine modification as it puts out enough to keep me happy lol..
I've got no complaints so far.. I did get some rs bonnet vents fitted the other week ( pic to follow) but that's about it.. I'm gonna wait till after xmas to get a exhaust n a cais..
