    This is the Litchfield car, owned by Litchfield from new for development purposes then brought by one of their customers who has owned for 12 months but being sold on behalf of litchfields again.

    It has the KW suspension with the standard damper settings still present.  Even in race its can be used on the road, rather I think the standard is possibly too firm.

    It has 13K miles from new and they are providing a 6 months warranty to new owner.

    I am siding with the standard car and as I said before, will probably just map to get the power how it should have came out of the factory and leave it as that.

    I’ve read about the VS issues but think you can drive around this with a bit of skill if it happens and is just a characteristic of the car with the awd setup?

    well given the choice I would have gone with the suspension litchfields RS –

    The suspension alone is work £3,000

    then there is the supporting mods and remap – again worth more than the 2K compared to the standard car…..

    Adam, buy what you want ! tell your friends to go and buy the Litchfield car if it floats their boat!



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit.

    The Badger has been observed in his natural habitat behaving quite well so NFA at this moment needed.

    How come you are changing from the GTR, more practicality?

    Kenny,

    Sold the GTR to use the cash for other things…..It was an epic car! I’ve owned some nice cars but the GTR was simply fantastic on road and track and it doesn’t drive it itself like some like to suggest.

    GTR can be practical to a point with a large boot and for short journeys – can squeeze four adults in the car!!!

    The focus RS fits the bill for me now as I’m looking for a daily but also maintain a certain level of fun factor.
