NEW Factory Five 635 HP NA Gen II GTM Racer / Street Car w/ Mendy S5-B RR 5 Speed Sequential Transaxle The most Powerful, Sophisticated and Safest Track or Street NA GTM in the World !!! Two years ago I bought G.C.’s famous #16 Koni Red / White /Blue GTM to capitalize on the inherent qualities of the GTM and convert #16 into the best track GTM / car in the world. This is the same car that took Grand Champion at the 2012 SEMA Show and is the very same GTM that still is used at the FF website and sales materials. I didn’t want to use my shop time building the basic Gen II GTM – I wanted to get Watkins Glen ASAP – so I bought G.C’s car thinking that I could be flying up the Esses at the Glen in 12 months. Well it’s taken 24+ months – mostly because perfection takes a lot longer. At a curb weight of 2390 lbs. & 635 CHP that is 3.75 #/HP so I have renamed the car the GTM-R for Racing. The Gold Standard in the GTM Stable, the Thunder Hill racer is at 4.8 #/HP which is 30% more than this GTM-R. After I bought #16 and stripped it down to a bare chassis removing every component, system, hose, and inch of wire. I knew exactly what I wanted as an end result – and have achieved that and this GTM-R is an absolutely NEW CAR and is in Concourse D’ Elegance condition throughout.

Front: 24/64-18’s & Rear: 30/68-18 – 12+” wide to take all that 60% rear weight w/o wheel spin. The GTM design is awesome in that it’s mid-engine for 30% of the weight in front of the rear axle – and the Mendy aft of the axels for the other 30% - Great Balance and handling. 22 -100% new Custom GTM Fuel System from Ted Harrison at Quick Racing Products w/ Bosch pump & Aeromotive filter & regulator & gauge. 23 – Aux. engine oil cooler in front above splitter. 24 – NEW Aluminum gas tanks w/ AN-22 cross over.

III – SAFETY ITEMS 1 – As delivered there was only modest impact protection for the driver or passenger. So, in this GTM-R there is a significant amount of steel that has been welded into place to make the sides – the strongest / safest area of the car. Between the rear bulkhead roll bar and the tube cluster forward of the door hinges a 2” dia. .060” wall DOM steel Primary Safety Frame that has been welded into place. Then a Side Impact Guard Rail of 1.5” dia. DOM steel frame has been locked and pinned into the Primary Safety Frame. Unassisted - the driver can easily install and remove this second piece. See pictures for details. 2 – Window Nets: The rear holes and seat belt type releases are welded into place at both window locations. The Side Impact Guard Rail comes right up to the top of the door it is a secure location to tie of any type of sanctioned window nets both windows. 3 – Additional welded in steel gussets or braces have been added at 14 different locations throughout the car to add more rigidity / safety to the frame. 4 – Micro-switch detectors & RED dash lights to confirm that all hood pins & Dzus fasters have been installed in both the nose fairing AND rear hatch. Aircraft type lamp with Push to Test fixtures to protect against a burnt out bulb. 5 – The expansion tank of the engine coolant system was in the front of the car and well below the highest point of the engine system, thus causing vapor lock for any expanded fluid. The GTM-R has a 2 Qt. expansion tank, w/ a 1” sight glass port, bolted to the firewall and well above the engine and w/ its own catch can. IV - DESIGN FEATURES : 1 – HEAT in the engine compartment was a big issue in my opinion. Thus many of the GTM-R design features were to improve cooling throughout the engine compartment: 2 – The hinged rear glass deck has been replaced with a Lexan removable panel w/ 18 – 4” cooling holes & secured w/ 4 quick pins. Light weight and a 1 man operation to install & remove. 3 – Removed the passenger seat and added a service panel in the seat back area for mounting the Engine ECU, the RaceLogic main computer, and main engine Relay/Fuse Block which had to be replaced since it was already melted in the old location. 4 – NACA type cooling ducts directly into engine compartment replacing the L & R blacked out ¼ panel windows. 5 – The entire fiberglass nose fairing was rebuilt. The former wheel well vent & radiator exhaust louvers were overlaid on body shell and riveted in place. All 4 of these vents assemblies have been installed flush and seamlessly, and the nose reinforced in certain areas – then totally hand worked, painted to match and finished. 6 - New Koni7 and # 16 vinyl graphics are already made & included. The existing graphics can be removed or supplemented to create a partnership with a charitable organization like The Wounded Warrior Project. 7 – Entire car & all systems have been designed for single person track day events – do NOT need crew or helpers to make your day at Calabogie, the Glen or Thunder Hill. 8 – Air Intake ; 16” X 3” air scoop incorporated into rear Lexan panel and directly fitted/gasketed to massive air intake box fitted w/ K&N filter for 100% cool air intake w/ bonus of a few inches of boost. 9 – The rear chassis has been supplemented with many additional pieces and features, w/o a weight penalty, that allows the Trans or engine to be removed without removing both. The Trans can slide 9” aft to unmated from engine w/o having to deal w/ frame interference. 10 – To become street legal in any state: A - Add back in windshield wiper motor and arm. Space, access, wiring, switch, and bolts in place @ “30 min job.” B – Add horn & button@ “60 min job.” 11 – A street passenger seat can be added; Remove cool shirt tray – plenty of space in front of the electric mounting panel ( # 2B above & see photos ) and all the original leg room exists. 12– 100% of the roof scoop air is for cockpit ventilation.
