We are Open Late!

Default The White Sheep: Focus ST shop car! would like to introduce to you, our new shop car “White Sheep”.
Not a Subaru, but it will be plenty of FUN!

We will be guiding you through this great car’s development that we are very excited about. Before taking delivery we went through the pre-delivery checklist that and once it all checked out we took her home. After filling out some paperwork, we drove it to the shop to check it out and see what its all about.

The White Sheep sitting all nice and clean on the showroom floor of the dealership (as you can tell these are some sweet phone pictures) :

The little ST has plenty of torque for a stock car, however there is always room to improve . We are still taking it easy though, so it will be a couple more days and a oil change before we really get into it. One thing right off the bat we noticed is it’s extremely quiet. Now we are not talking about road noise so much as the lack of engine/exhaust noise.So far we have not notice the exhaust tone inside the car, and it’s not very noticeable outside the car either which is a little disappointing. Although we do notice the intake doing its job at around 3k+ thanks to the Symposer, which is about the only sound heard for now.

So far the car seems to be very fun and sporty, we have not started driving it hard but you can tell this little thing will have traction problems as it makes mountains of TQ down low! The stock suspension is actually nice and stiff, I would say similar to the 2011 STi, the brakes are ok, but the interior freaking RULES!

We have some plans for this car you can be sure of that . Right now we are working hard on getting measurements, talking to manufactures, and getting the miles racked up so we can start having some fun! First priority will be break it in, oil change, wheels and coilovers!

Oh and before anyone asks. "White Sheep"?! Well its our first domestic shop car, so we figure its the odd one out between the BRZ and the STi shop cars for the time being :P
