Information

Take everyone's favourite hot hatch, stick slicks on it, thrown in a beastly 2.0 engine, throw out some weight, then clad it in some mean racecar bodywork and this is what you end up with. The most powerful FWD car in LFS, it brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "power understeer". Requires smooth driving. Is a competitor to the UF GTR.

Setup tip

Wheelspin frying the front tyres is the main nightmare behind these cars, so keep the suspension soft, lock the differential as far as it will go on the power side and use the coast side to control lift off oversteer. Keep zero toe on the front wheels, and keep tyre pressures LOW. Although this makes the tyres easier to heat up, the extra grip will be more beneficial in preventing wheelspin, so in fact the tyres will generally be cooler.

UF GTR

UF GTR
Short name UFR
Drive Front engined, front wheel drive
Engine 1.4 litre inline 4
Power 134 kW (180 bhp) @ 8246 rpm
Torque 178 Nm (131 lbft) @ 5870 rpm
Total-Mass 600 kg (1323 lbs)
Power-weight 223 W/kg (304 bhp/ton)
Weight dist 64.6 F 35.4 R
Fuel tank capacity 60 ltr
Suspension Front: {{{FrontSusp}}}
Rear: {{{RearSusp}}}

Information

While it has less power than it's competitor, the XF GTR, it's lack of weight more than makes up for this. On twistier circuits it will eat the XF GTR (and a couple of sets of tyres), but loses out on the straights. Certainly requires smooth driving. Whoever said Minis were boring?

Setup tip

See the XF GTR's tip.
