Description

142R4.jpg (26007 bytes)

All members of TDR Test Drivers Racing Team work as professional testdrivers at Volvo Proving Ground Hällered, that is located 50 miles outside Gothenburg. We all enjoy driving an “old” car instead of all the new ones that we drive in our job. 

The 142 is very competitive in racing if you do the right changes to the chassis and drive-train. It is very important that the chassis
is well balanced. You have to experiment with shocks, springs and rollbars. When the recipe is right you have a true Porsche-killer, believe me. !!
