TBR18 marked a step up in engine size from the KTM 500 to the KTM 690, choosing power over overall car mass. This setup gave 74hp @ 8500rpm, 62Nm torque @ 8000rpm, with a ready-to-race weight of 205kg. The aerodynamic package added a hefty 1100N of downforce at 80kph. Unfortunately, despite a winning design on paper, the team was plagued by boosting issues at FSUK and FS East, ruining our shot at what could have been a competition trophy. With the issues sorted out, TBR18 proved itself in the highly competitive FS Austria, taking 3rd overall!
