Keith,

MGR have a little bit of information on the MG TF on their official website www.mg-rover.com - click on the MG Octagon, then once the page has fully loaded, click on "Development Zone" across the top. I'm suprised it's not featured in a lot greater depth - after all, this car was "officially" launched on 8th Feb!!

Personally though I'd recommend the main site here, www.xpower-mg.com, as the information is far better.

In other words Jerrys' site wipes the floor with any other. Period. :)

Rear wheel drive and tips . . . . . not that I am Damon Hill or anything but:

Haven't driven a TF, but have driven an F VVC in anger and they are very good fun. You will love it I am sure.

Mid engined means excellent balance and poise but oversteer is more snappy and harder to control as the drivetrain sitting behind you acts like a pendulum.

Obviously watch the back end, it will take a lot to get it to go in the dry, but obviously much easier in the wet, cornering with power on hard or high RPM overrun (engine braking).

Take it to a big car park when run in and have a laugh seeing what I mean (I did) :D Just don't tell the bird, it was her car! :(

Matt.
