The group of photos below are of the first race car Albert Broadfoot built from the ground up. Our old company name was Technical Dimensions. This company was owned by Albert & Kelli Broadfoot between 1993 - 2000. We at that time specialized in the repair of Porsche and Audi automobiles. The company was sold in 2000 when we went full-time Pro Racing.
The Freemanshaft Racing race car shown below was built by Albert Broadfoot from a bone stock 1995 993.
Albert Broadfoot totally rebuilt the stock 3.6 993 street car engine to 3.8 993 RSR specifications when the Freemanshaft car arrived at the shop. The engine was built only one time, and used in several 12 and 24 hour races. The engine had over 100 hours of practice time, qualifying time, and full race time without any mechanical failures and not one oil leak! This is a "Race Proven" testament to the durability and quality of engines built by Albert Broadfoot.
A few of the photos show the car destroyed after a racing incident with the Momo Ferrari SP333. We have video of the car flying 15 feet in the air. There were no usable parts on the car after the crash.
