Leaving for the Worlds in Burgdorf Germany tomorrow morning. This will be fun.

Below a glimpse of the latest projects.


Busy Testing

Productive testing days lately…

TRF goes Twitter

Golf reloaded



Have run the FF-03 a little the last three days now and I’m absolutely in love with this car!

The setup as built per instructions is already very good. Just make sure you check the droop is equal and that the rear dampers are not limiting rear droop. Needed to unscrew the ends a bit.

Í made a front roll-bar out of parts I had, using the H (hard) front bar made for the 416 together with some 32mm turnbuckles and the neccesary cups, balls and other hardware. This allows you to be a lot more aggressive going into the turns and makes the car really fun to drive.

The FF-03 has a lot of steering and carries amazing corner speed. It’s fairly quiet and is really good over kerbs, and the realism is just great!
