  • The MS3's power was limited in the 1st and 2nd gear due to traction challenges. There are no such limitations on the ST if the TC/ESC is disabled, correct?
  • I understand that there is some form of torque vectoring in play with the ST. There is no electronic diff correct? Is the torque vectoring associated with the brakes only? If the 'nannies' are defeated does the torque vectoring go away also?
My research on the Focus showed no limiting of power in any gear that I recall. Does not mean it does not, but all 30 articles and reviews I read did not mention it.

On the second point, I can tell you for certain, with TC/ESC off, the brake vectoring is still working all the time to help you out. But you can roast tires around every tight corner if you like.
