XF GTR is the race version of the XFG.

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.
