The auto can be launched at the flash stall which may be 2500. Because you are launching from a lower rpm where the car may be out of the power band it will be slow regardless. A easy way to find out...

If the base 2.3T can hit low 3200 lbs range it would be a fun car. IRS and other changes could make it handle very well. I sort of doubt it will be that light, the Focus ST is heavier than that.

It would be depending on final weight. If it weighs in at over 3500lbs then that turbo 4 will lose a lot of its benefits.

Auto art makes good quality models. They are expensive but usually appreciate in value unlike real cars.

This is on my list. I like collecting models of cars I own or would like to own.
