Thumbs up Tornado carbonfibre chassis

Hi guys, does anybody had any experience with driving a tornado gt40 with a carbonfibre chassis? Is it performing like a new supercar, or is it more like an upgrade of the replica?

One or two on TSC's homepage, sorry but the internet links don't seem to be working for me too well at the moment and I can't hyperlink direct to the chassis page, this link is to the main page, follow TSC GT40 Chassis for more info on the CF: Tornado Sports Cars Main Page
