A limited slip differential is present has been added too and to further assist the car go and stop even faster, the soft top was swapped for a fixed composite hard top. In doing so, the car's weight distribution has been shifted to become a little rear biased while gaining a lower center of gravity.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
