RaceAbout on LFS.net

RaceAbout is a mid engined/rear driven (MR) roadster developed by a group of Finnish students of automotive engineering and industrial design, MY 2002.

Existing prototype of a sportscar from Finland powered by a mid-mounted turbocharged Saab engine. Hard to be driven on the limit. See the project's website.

Setup tip

The lack of rear antiroll bar can make this awkward to setup. Don't put too much understeer into the springs or the car will push too much. No need to go silly with the front antiroll bar either, although a healthy amount is still recommended. Keep the suspension fairly soft too.
