Negatives It looks great from 10 feet away, but it ultimately is a race car. There's minor dents around the body and paint fade in parts. The paint is chipping on the rear bumper thanks to a love-tap from a fellow TJ . The steering wheel has some play due to the hex QR hub. The interior could use a respray if you're concerned about cosmetics. The car needs a few safety items to be fully race legal (padding, etc). I have not kept up with 2013+ NASA/SCCA rule changes, there may be other things needed I'm not aware of.
I bought the car in October 2011. I drove it in several DE weekends until I got into an accident Jan 2012 where the front passenger-side area was damaged. I had it repaired by Stuart Robinson's crew at Motorsports Development Group where they replaced the subframe, upper & lower control arms, shock, and fender. While there, I had them replace the clutch (stock), install the FCM kit w/ 99 tophats, and then corner balance and align the car. The last time it was on track was July 2012 at the TWS Instructor OTD event.
The car is in great shape and was built very well. I was fortunate to meet one of Greg Lucas' fabricators at a track event and he confirmed that they had made the cage in the car. The previous owner was over 6' tall and was comfortable inside - the tubes hug the interior nicely and the seats are bolted to the floor. I'm 5'5" and I was also comfortable in the car (eyes make it just over the wheel).
The car comes with 4 sets of wheels, with 2 sets having mounted tires (wheels/tires not balanced).
Having come up from the AC Mays school of braking, I prefer very little bite / lots of pedal travel as per the current brake setup. Some Carbotechs can change that if you prefer the opposite.
PM me here if you're interested in checking out the car. I'm in NE Houston.
