It's time to part with my car. The business I started in 2015 has taken all my free time and that isn't going to change.

I've driven stacks and stacks of locosts and other race cars - the biggest differentiator I can say about this one - it drives like a street car - a ridiculously fast one. no exhaustively heavy brakes or jerky steering, no snap oversteer at the limit - very predictable and very easy to get in to and drive.

Car was mechanically repaired after my off and run a few weeks after that sans most of the body work and aside from being started once a month in the shop has been collecting dust for the last few years.

build thread: viewtopic.php?t=13245

You couldn't duplicate this car for anywhere near what I'd like to get for it.

I've got stacks and stacks of spare parts.

This isn't your standard locost - this is stripped down and meant for racing - it's quick, a stack of trophys and fastest time of the days from autox's and hillclimb events.

If you wanted to street drive it you certainly could - it'll need a taller set of tires and some lighter weight springs - very straight forward to do.

The good:
Oregon VINned & titled car - registration has lapsed but it's street legal with plates.
F20c w/6speed transmission - 240+hp
s2000 rear end
racepak dash & data logger
haltech stand alone engine management
custom valved bilstein race shocks all around with plenty of spring rate options
rocker arm front suspension
coleman quick ratio rack
big and small fuel tank - small for autox/hillclimb and big for road race
lightweight flywheel
fresh braille battery - wouldn't start last month - battery finally died, replaced with fresh one
kirkey racing seats - driver side is adjustable.
collapsible steering shaft so you won't get speared in the chest in a crash.
Car has been developed - this wasn't a quickly finished car - it's been tweaked and worked on through 2+ seasons to be reliably quick.

The bad:
not a lot of bodywork on it today :)

I have the molds for the bodywork I ran on it as well as a lotus 7 style nose and hood.

Additional / spare parts:
multiple front brake rotor setups (thick & thin)
multiple sets of rubber/wheels - front 7" & 10" width for high speed or autox use.
racepak splitter/hub & steering sensor never mounted
titanium valve retainers - never installed.
AN hardware, bolts, wiring, etc

Additional related stuff could also be packaged - racing scales, alignment tools, carbon fiber ITB filter case, etc

I'm thinking somewhere around $8500 is the right price but let's talk if you disagree. I'd like to see it go to a good home - it's a DM national champ in the making.

Come take a ride in it - you'll be sold.

I'll edit with pics this evening.

Please let me know what folks would like to see - bodywork is upstairs in the attic, spares are in the attic, the tire rack and in a number of boxes.

Have been soloing a Westfield crossflow 1600 in DM, and of course dreadfully out gunned. Have considered the AP1 conversion in the Westfield kit, but too pricey. Your F20 looks like what I have been thinking about for a couple of seasons now. in Tucson we autocross all year, and I am getting skunked by tricked out Elans, and locosts. My wife B Sreets an S2000 and won't let me have the motor.
Is your car running ok now? How are the body and hood parts? Maybe we could talk about this more. John, 520 904 7941
