    Ford focus FFB issue

    As part of my career I am having to race the Ford Focus RS at Sonoma Raceway Short and there appears to be an issue with the FFB with this combination

    The FFB seems to fade out for a while and then comes back and the wheel tries to snap to one side - its like a lag and then the FFB is released in one go

    There are a few places this occurs. two being

    the second half of the hair pin

    the left hand bend just before the start of the downhill windy section - sorry don't know corner names

    I tested the track with other cars but didn't have the issue and the focus is ok on other tracks.

    Has anybody else noticed this

    I think it's just how the car is. The FFB gets weak when you step on the gas, especially on uphill sections, because all the weight transfers to the rear.

    Yes I get the going light under acceleration that but this seems to happen after turns . There is around half a dozen places it happens , but you don't get it on other tracks with the car.

    maybe a car/track combination issue, but it is a weird sensation and makes driving a horrible little car harder, think I liked the caterham better!!

    I concur. I really dislike how the Renault Megan feels. The only FWD I like the feeling of is the Renault Clio Cup. The rest stink. I'd much rather race RWD anyday anyway.

    Try it in the rain at Sonoma and you'll learn just how horrible it is.
