Driving Characteristics Edit
The Ford Focus RS RX is a rallycross car and, as such, is made for offroad racing. It has an extremely fast 0-60 mph acceleration time of 1.9 seconds, which outclasses even hypercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ultima Evolution Coupe 1020, and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport; this is a trait typical of rallycross cars primarily due to their all-wheel-drive drivetrains and the need to get a great start off the line especially on dirt tracks.
The Focus RS RX handles and brakes really well, especially off-road. Despite these handy performance advantages, the Focus RS RX is best used for tracks with a lack of long straights, as its top speed is rather low: 144 mph (232 km/h) and its gear ratio is very short which is typical of rallycross cars.
