I was looking through the special supplemental manual that is bundled with the regular one that explains the ST’s special features, and I found this table. This wonderful, hilarious table. For the three of you in Oppo that don’t drive a FoST for some reason (you weirdos), if you are driving smoothly and not just dumping the clutch, you probably haven’t finished letting the clutch out in 1st at 12 mph and you’re in danger of stalling out at 32 mph in 4th. But we can all appreciate how they clearly wish they could say “just ignore 5th altogether”.

I am confident that it is impossible for a human being from the planet earth to drive a Focus ST like this. Or a machine for that matter. The math doesn’t work out.
