Additional adjustments will most certainly yield reduced lap times. No expense was spared to build a safe, fun competitive roadster. This ready to race vehicle is being sold due to the arrival of a new child and the realization that I have too many race cars and projects. Other than adjustments for the new racer's comfort, this vehicle is truly ready to go. All fluids have been replaced, vehicle is clean.
