Go Stephen! Go!

Stephen Dudley (the owner and driver of the FIAT 500 Targa) has just notified us that he and his 500 MADNESS Sponsored FIAT 500 are now competing in the "Special Stage" of the Newfoundland Targa Rally.

Stephen is sending us updates as the race progresses. Here is the latest picture of the car as it enters the "Special Stage" part of the race:



We wish Stephen and his team all the best! As the team updates updates us with their progress we will post updates.

Thanks for the list! I haven't actually seen any real world reviews of the Sprint Booster and I am curious how much difference there is between it and the ECU upgrade module/chip from RRM. Anyways, thanks!
If you are debating whether or not you should get a Sprint Booster the best thing I can tell you is that we offer it with a 30 day money back guarantee. Try it and if you do not like it return it within 30 days for a refund. The only cost to you would be shipping.

I cannot say anything about any product offering from RRM since we do not offer their line and have not had the opportunity to try any of their offerings.

Video - 500 MADNESS Sponsored FIAT 500 Racing in Newfoundland


We were just sent a link of our fellow 500 Rally Driver Stephen Dudley racing his 500 MADNESS Sponsored FIAT 500 through a residential part of the Rally.

The rally has different stages. On some of them the cars are able to run flat out and on some of the stages the cars must travel through residential areas. During that time they must obey all speed laws.

This portion shows Steven going through a residential area so he must not exceed the legal speed limit.

We wish Stephen the best of success! Go Stephen! Go!

Here is the link to the Video:

Some questions...

Which brakes, suspension, engine & throttle module, intake, exhaust?

Also, if this is a race car...why add the HID which adds weight and unless being driven during the night does not seem a need for a "race car".

Otherwise, cool stuff. :)
Maybe they are respecting the forum rules by not coming on here to name each product.;)

I assumed it might be their own products but if not then I thought it worth asking...could still offer the unit brand, TMC or MM and why add the HID setup at the least, if the rest is all their own I'd have thought it'd have been said as the specifics were added for a few products.
