· To be SCCA/NASA legal, the car still needs a seat back brace, fuel test port and battery kill switch. Should be around $100-$150 for all these parts.

· Clutch makes a whining noise. Not exactly sure why, has new pilot and throw bearing as well as new disc and pressure plate. Still engages perfectly.

· Tachometer recently started bouncing around. I replaced the car/rotor but its still doing it. Most likely ignitor needs to be changed or possibly distributor itself. Isn’t a tach issue. The tach is brand new.

· When I say “New” I mean that the parts have an hour or less of track time. I bought the car as a rolling chassis and built it up from there with as many new parts as possible. None of the parts are cheap. Most were purchased from OPM Motorpsorts.



Currently taking offers, not looking to trade for another car. Must sell due to lack of weekend time due to new job and lack of funds to pursue this hobby.

The car is still for sale. I need to get rid of it very soon. I just bought another street car and have no more time or room for this car.


First on with 6K cash takes it....
