Has anyone done a step by step for building an FFR GTM ? Answered

I would love to build one but I would need better instructions to enhance the ones supplied.

I guess you've been lurking around this forum.  Or maybe not and if not you ought to go there and see what's to be learned.

Years ago I help a small bit of building a kit car in the late '70s and there was almost no information in the manual.  Told us what order to do things in but not many details. 

I doubt that you'll find any better instruction than the manual they supply, it's just too big a job to create a new one unless you're going to get paid for it.  If I was building one, I would'nt waste my time rewriting the manual, I'd want to get on with my car.

Good luck anyway.

Yes I have been there
And from what I did read a second manual would result in less baud GTM owners.
Things like pieces not fitting and a whole weekend to modify them to do so.
There would be some serious money to be made if someone produced an even more complete book.
I would defenetly buy one.
Even out the skill level playing field allot. 
If extremely experienced mechanics say never again after building one of these then....
It would be pretty cool if an average Joe who's not a race car mechanic but mechanically  inclined with a little pro help here and there could put one together over time.
The FFR GTM is the coolest car I have ever seen.

.  That's a problem with a lot of kit cars. Almost impossible to detail how to fix every factory screw up.

.  Same with moon rockets, but I don't see it happening. If you're gonna build a race car, you need to be a race car mechanic.

.  Very cool.

.  From a safety standpoint, if you need detailed instructions, maybe you shouldn't be building a vehicle that will go over 120 MPH.
