Sheesh, the OP bounced from here to trash the FiSTforum, and they wouldnt bite. Dude doesnt have loyalty anywhere does he?
Well I was gonna bite my tongue but ...... I am not lol . I pretty much called his MO awhile back. When he did not get the approval he was seeking here for his conclusions he took the them elsewhere . Which is I might add a bit trollish.
If he was a true Fiesta fan he would have stuck around and took the criticisms and disagreement. Instead he went to the FoST forum to hear people say yes you are right the FoST is a better car.
There is like one person over there speaking out about the FiST a autocross guy Gemery . Who talks about a couple of people supposedly bicycling their FiST’s in autocross.
It reminds of the posts I saw a few years ago about a person rolling their FiST again in Autocross . Funny thing is there are a fair amount of people Autocrossing their FiST’s here who have not bicycled or rolled their FiST’s yet have repeatedly place high in their class if not win their class. Their are guys tracking FiST’s . I will admit I did see a vid of the AET guys in England bicycling their car at a race track in extreme competition.
I was kinda shocked because you can push these cars really hard and tripod sure but bicycle? I am guessing you would have to strike a track curb ( yes even race tracks have curbing) to bicycle the car. Either that or someone has made really bad suspension and tire choices.

Lol I mean, why would he buy a car that's inferior to the one he loves? Seems like a real douche canoe.

Because as the time to buy has come closer and closer I see threads started and replied to less and less. Also, when I was first researching I noted how slow the forums where. (MAYBE a topic a day, lots of no new topics for days at a time.)

I agree with the FB comment. I only have an account to talk to my family from time to time, since they're scattered across the US. I visit that site about once a week, and most FB Fiesta ST posts are people posting up pics and saying how much they love their cars. Great, but really not a 'forum.'

Keeping in mind I don't blame the forum too much in the lack of life. The car is dead, and it will only get worse as time goes on. So be it. It's the same with my motorcycle. It stopped being made in 2014, so forums are slowing down and down. Oh well.
The FiST will never die. It’s an icon and the best short run Ford production car. There will be nothing like it again.

No like literally with an ecoboost. Not a gm powertrain. It would be pretty fun. And not be a run of the mill 5.7 or crap 3.8 with a heat pump. Lol.

Superchargers have their place...Ive owned an Bonneville SSEI and after some intercooler mods and smaller pulleys with Tune...god dam that thing was the best Road trip car ever and would blow doors off a lot of vehicles. They are a force to reckoned with when done up right. Rode down the road like a yacht in the ocean.

Funny you mention that, I have an SSEI in my garage and I almost wanted to drop the L67/trans into a Fiero to boot!

Ive never come across any decent one. Most here are hacked together and waiting for the blower snout to seize and catch the car on fire.
