Fast Ford - - Club Meet -

Gary is what is known as a re­turnee – he’s had a ton of clas­sic Fords in the past; in­clud­ing Mk1/ Mk2 Es­corts and an XR3i too. Right now, it’s time to get back into fast Fords and what bet­ter way than buy­ing a brand-new Fo­cus RS? But of course, any Ford is sim­ply a blank can­vass and you can’t keep it stock, can you? Con­se­quently, the list of mods he’s made so far are pretty im­pres­sive.

There’s more planned along with maybe a to­tal colour change – “thing is there’s so many Ni­trous Blue cars out there be­cause they look great and it’s such a pop­u­lar colour, but that does mean it’s dif­fi­cult to make it stand out – hence the graph­ics and the wrap on the roof by Es­sex Wraps,” ex­plains Gary.

He con­tin­ues: “I’m think­ing of wrap­ping the whole car, maybe in red, but the trou­ble is I don’t want to make it look like an Edi­tion model. We’ll see what hap­pens...”

There’s been a few en­gine mods too, and Gary’s gone “as far as you’d want to go with the stock 2.3”. Seems like the next step is to go for a fully forged en­gine…

Gary’s not been shy with the up­grades for his RS With tun­ing taken as far as he re­li­ably can, the next step for Gary is have the en­gine fully forged­pe­cially as they were mir­rored by a row of new Fo­cus RSs too!
