but why would anyone in the USA need that? Not like there are any sharp corners over there.



Sounds more like a Ford system

i have the 2012 Ford Focus with this. I have thrown it around a corner and felt the rear slide out. It was incredibly controllable and felt decently safe

There is a steeda rear sway bar that is out for this car that alot of people on the focus forum has said improves the car quite a bit. I am thinking about ordering it.

just like on civics probably, the rear sway is ultra wimpy and it should make a good bit of difference. It did on my integra when i swapped the type-R LCAs, springs and sways over.

The thing with FWD though is it still won't help you push with your outter rear wheel, since neither rear wheel can push. Plus it's not true torque vectoring anyway it's basically stability control - applying brakes one at a time.

Ford's been making a fuss about their torque vectoring system in the Focus ST, due out late this year. Even though the car's uglier than hell, it looks like a fun little pocket rocket.

You must be on crack. The Ford system does quite the opposite. Leaking fluids coat the front wheels resulting in no steering. See, the Ford engineers really took their geographic market to heart. They knew Americans wouldn't notice a leak when they only go straight.
