British specialist buggy manufacturer Willspeed has released their RF3 TLR 22 5.0 2WD Buggy conversion kit. Progressing on a successful 4 years since the incarnation of the RF2 conversion platform, utilising the same principles and philosophies now proven they took the design back to basics to keep the same integral properties but improve on further adjustability, tunability and durability resulting in an all new platform, with the RF3 the results.
Willspeed have produced their RF2 conversion for the Schumacher Cougar LD2. The conversion platform was designed and manufactured by engineers and racers alike for the true ultimate in performance on medium to high traction surfaces. The RF2 design focuses on moving the weight bias forwards by utilising a 5 gear transmission which allows the motor position to be moved further forwards creating a smaller located area of main mass which aids to control weight transfer. The billet aluminium tub chassis is the ultimate in chassis design, the centre of gravity is super low, the chassis has no additional guards or stiffeners removing unwanted tweak and is self integrally stiff. The aluminium selected for its natural dampening properties this not only allows for an incredibly agile platform its also super predictable. The end result, a platform that not only loves corner speed but it is also dependable and predictable lap after lap making going fast, easy.
