How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

Per Ikbrown's request I thought I would start compiling.

I heard you like pinstripes...

Tanner Foust likes stripes apparently...

I can't figure out which is worse - the side-mounted exhaust, or the crooked fart cannon.

Re: How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

Crooked fart cannon because of how noticeable it is, but I'll have to see if I can link the video he posted of the side exhaust.  They ghetto-rigged it pretty badly, so the hangers allow it to bounce so much lol.

Re: How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

They jankily cut his ebay side splitters around it.  Can't get the video since it is on Facebook, but here is the front end of that beauty.

He drives downtown for Uber or Lyft, I've seen him once before in my neighborhood.

He seems like a nice guy, but posts everything he ever thinks on the local ST FB group.

Re: How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

Yup he made them out of Headlight tint vinyl from eBay or something.  When his hood was stock, grille was still there, and no hella horns it actually didn't look too bad.

Hella horns are so stupid looking, I don't understand why anyone puts them on.

Re: How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

Wow. wow. WOW!! So good. You've definitely delivered, Hammy. I think that Ken Block snickered up one takes the cake for me. The Move Over sticker  facepalm ha. So many good ones.
I found one the other day to add to the mix but yours are much better. This is pretty mild, I think he just over-did it on the MOAR black accents look.

Not a huge fan of the color, but that is actually one of the best looking ST's I've seen. They look so much better in two door trim, does ford ever plan to release them?

What do you mean?  I don't think Ford US will be releasing one anytime soon, but they already exist elsewhere.  Hence the one in that picture.

I meant in the US, sorry. They look so much better than the four door IMO.

Yeah that is a Focus RS Mk2, the current one coming to the states is the Mk3 and we won't be seeing a 2 door.

Re: How not to FoST (hammyt's collection of poorly modded FoSTs)

Have you ever asked yourself, "Does a car need pin striped racing stripes, fender stripes, regular pin stripes, local car club sticker with pin stripes, ST racing decal featuring stripes, rally car driver stickers, and stickers for every single thing done to the car?"
