I got both, and would recommend the FF03 on a racetrack, and a TT02 on a parking. The TT is more bullit proof, the FF needs a bit more care, but is much better adjustable.

Very true. The FF03 needs a good diff, something less fragial than the stock plastic ball diff. Other upgrades can follow later.

I have an FF-03 with gear diff using the following parts
FF-03 gear diff case
51466 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Cup Joint Set
51464 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Gasket
51462 TA06 Rear Gear Differential Case Set (52T)
51460 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Bevel Gear Set

minor mods needed by just shaving the plastic front upper linkage mount. Fits fine and works perfectly

This may have been answered before, but reading the TCS rules it states that the gear cover must be used. Id like to get as low of a gear ratio as possible. currently i have it set at a 58/72 64 pitch which ends up being a 3.23. problem is that the gear cover wont fit. does anyone know the closest ratio that can be achieved to this and still fit the gear cover?

I can check my FF03 when I get home, here's a shot of my XV01 under a
1970 Ford Mustang Boss 302



I had to trim quite a lot of bumper foam away to get it to fit.

For gt3 for the FF class? The gear cover must be in place for FF, but I was under the impression it was okay to omit it for gt3.

In that case, I have the same question. I wonder if grinding the inside of the cover is legal at all....I would assume no.

It appears that 80/54 will fit under the gear cover, for a FDR of 3.85. That's pretty close.
