TVR Tamora ’02

I love all the TVR cars because they just look insane and beautiful at the same time. All the lights are built into the bodywork, they have crazy splitters or defusers, and they always have awesome paint. Usually they are just decent cars, however, this one is a little different. This car is so light! Just look at the weight vs HP, it is insane. Most cars with that much HP weigh at least double. If you have a long enough straight I am sure you can hit 200mph in this car. Pretty crazy for something so small with only a little over 500hp. Also, it drives really well, and I mean really well. It feels better than rails. More like riding on a laser beam. It can step out on your if you aren’t paying attention, but after a couple laps you’ll master it and be amazed.

I used sports soft tires for a little more fun to let the back wiggly, but used racing soft for that serious precision. Try it out and you’ll see what I mean right away.

    i was just in the market for a non expensive European car and I think I just found it

    • It’s definitely a good one and looks good too

        just bought the Mitsubishi HSR-II ’89 and boy howdy is it a track beast but has major understeer. think you can take a whack at the car?

  • Henrique Bezerra da Silva

    Do you think if we drop it to 550 would ruined the tune?

    • I would take a part or two off and see how different it is. Other option is just limit power. However, if you find you do not have very good acceleration afterwards than move the final gear in the transmission to the right. How much to move it is just from testing, but I would say relatively small amount.

        Sounds great, thank you!!! I will try because this cars handles like crazy and might be the best 550 if I can get it right!!!

        • Yes, I would imagine everything else should be fine and it would be great. Just the transmission might be too long for less power.
