Hi, does anybody else have the issue of your Focus not wanting to stay in a straight line on snow or ice? Mine seems to have a mind of it's own in winter, drives me nuts. I have the 2000 Focus ZX3. Thanks in advance to all that reply, hopefully with a resolve to this annoying situation.

It's normal since the older Focus don't have a limited slip.

Hi, thanks for the input. No limited slip eh? Any way to help out that situation? I have snow tire and now thinking about weight in the mid to rear section of the car

Do you know of a limited slip conversion kit? Mine is an automatic.
