    Reason Why I Chose the Fiesta ST
    We needed a car that was short and light enough to fit into the back of a toyhauler trailer and fit two 95 lb dogs, groceries and us as well as run with very fast cars on road race tracks. I was in the middle of building a $40k 97 BMW 318ti CA Edition when on vacation in CA drove the FiST, took my wife for a drive, we both had to have it, we fell in love with it immediately and took it home to UT were we lived at the time and still love the car though done far more to it than planned:)

    Congratulations @RAAMaudio. Well deserved recognition of a major contributor to the forum for a great project to expand the Fiesta ST platform. Most folks won't take their cars this far, but we can all take bits and pieces from what you've done and apply the thinking.

    CONGRATS to RAAMaudio for FINALLY getting this honor!

    Few have taken this platform as far as he has, short of the all out, fully caged, time attack, touring car, and rally people, and they do not have to worry about street legality at all (except for the WRC/national rally cars which ARE driven on public roads for their transits), or ANY type of practicality/utility which Rick must have.

    I WISH that I could do 1/20th of the fully functional performance mods he did to make this FiST into the insane little street legal road race car it is, to mine when it is finally delivered!

    I've met this guy. He's exactly how you see his cars. Dedicated and on point. It took too long to make it to the list but just at the right time.

    Wow, nice ride, congrats! I'm new to the site and new to the fiesta, only having mine for 2 weeks now, but you've shown me a long list of potential that the car has, thanks.

    Thanks everyone, you votes and very nice comments are very much appreciated:)

    The last pictured makes the car look taller than it is, must be the pavement angles it is sitting on, other pics show the wheels much more tucked in and looks lower but not slammed as I would never mess up my suspension by doing so.

    I hope our changing plans for how we live allow us to keep the car but if I have to let it go I hope it can go to one of the great members here that would appreciate all the time and love I put into it, truly may of been my most fun build yet even though I have built far more expensive projects from far more expensive cars this one is just a rare breed, in line with icons like the 510's I drove for 10 years starting in 1972.
    2014 ST, Silver, Street/Track/Audio
    2012 Duramax Dually, Audio, Custom Leather, etc.....
    2012 Voltage 3905 Toyhauler, modded of course!
