First FF Test of 2013

Finally got time to start running the FF again and as always when I run that car I have to say that this is the most fun class so far. If I could do big races like the ETS in this class this is all I would run.

Still running the Huge FF-11 while I wait for newer and more interesting alternatives to become available…

These dampers feature all-new parts, and their main feature is the cylinder: it has an inner diameter of 12mm, 2mm wider than that on the standard Buggy Aeration Damper.

A number of option parts have been released to increase setup options to these dampers such as different size pistons.
