Component Cars Australia Gets Hot Rod Chassis Approved for Customers Down Under

Posted on July 9th, 2012

Chris Canning here at Factory Five with FFR engineers.

Good news for Factory Five hot rodders down under. Our partner Chris Canning from Component Cars Australia reports that the Factory Five ’33 Hot Rod passed 7,000 nm on the Australian Regulatory Torsion Test. Chris used a stock Factory Five ’33 Hot Rod frame with an additional gusset section under the main rails.

“At his engineers request, they also changed out all of the suspension bushings with a product called Lubron. Although an expensive and timely modification, this change was found to have little to no improvement in the overall result so they will not be using this mod on Australian FFRs.”

Huge congratulations to Chris for all of his work and thanks also to the great engineers and regulatory folks in Australia for passing our products.

  • Looks like a great result.

    I wonder if Factory Five will be supporting Chris in doing the same test for the Roadster Mk4. I am sure all of the Factory Five community would like to see that result too.
