Press days for the 2013 Chicago Auto Show will begin tomorrow, so it’s no surprise that starting today you will be hearing details about the models to be displayed in there. For example, Ford, in collaboration with fifteen52 and Ken Block, will be unveiling a very cool tuning kit based on the Focus ST. In fact, this cooperation will bring three different projects, with the first one being the TrackSTer project.
The new TrackSTer has been specially designed to pay tribute to Ford Racing’s past models, but in the same time, it proves just how far Ford’s performance envelope can be pushed.
The project includes a new short-throw shifter and a performance exhaust system from Ford Racing, which has also provided a Mountune engine build, using forged rods and pistons, a performance intercooler and an upgraded ECU.
From its racing brother, the ST-R, the new TrackSTer borrows the Quaife limited slip differential, the Center Force custom clutch kit and the four-piston front calipers.
