Another Friend'* Car: LS1 FC RX7
This is a car that one of the guys in my local car club is selling. Again, I've seen it personally and it is top notch. Thought some people might be interested to maybe buy, but if not, then see it...
Many of you know the car, for the last 4 years of my life I have dedicated my life, lots of money and my soul to this car. I have done 4 years of research and development to make a car that is reliable, fast, and handles well that can take the stresses of real racing and beg for more. I have done several track schools at watkins glen with the car and have never been passed. I have purchased a house and have to move on sadly. The car is turn-key and absolutely NOTHING is needed other than a driver to take this car to the drags, autox, road racing. I haven't taken it to the drag strip since the new engine as I'm not really a drag racer, but I believe it'* a mid 11'* car with the right tires, racing against other 11 second cars has proven this as well.
I will consider all newer (1995+), lower mileage (under 100k) manual transmission trades + cash. I will be putting it on ebay very soon.
I am asking $18,500.00 or best offer, a few months ago a bone stock LS1 FC RX7 that had been painted sold for $15k on ebay, mine has $10k more in equipment than that one.
Many thanks to Darkvibe for taking the pictures, he describes the car as "******* scary fast" after a ride
