MGR have a little bit of information on the MG TF on their official website - 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,, 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! :(
