I replace the fluid after every race and never experienced any fade or performance issues. Everything is safety-wired. Car brakes evenly and predictably. Front suspension includes longer lower control arms, racing springs, stock dampers with racing valves and 20 weight fork oil. Nylatron bushings. 1" custom sway bar with adjustable end links for setting pre-load. King pins are in good shape. Bearings and seals are all in good working order. MG Rack is in good working order.

Fuse box was uprated and circuits separated. The car is clean and in good working order. It has been run in anger and tested thoroughly. The suspension, brakes and drive train (less the motor which is not included) are very robust.

History

Owner fabricated and built to run at The Glenn and Limerock. I used the car for the last six years to run track time and learn how to drive competitively. The car could be tagged however impractical as the interior is stripped and the cage/chair are set up for competition.

Recent Competition History

Turned Limerock with 58's with a 5.0L Rover.
