There is no reasonable explanation for this build.

1972 Opel GT shell (door hinges only remaining moving parts from Opel)
Chevy Truck V8 (4.8L - stock cam and internals)
Ford Mustang T5 (with Chevy S10 tailshaft)

BMW Z3 rear suspension and diff 
BMW 330i brakes (e46)
Corvette driveshaft (C4)
 
Fourth race for the car was WRL @ TWS May 2017 - shows real potential, but still a work in progress .

255/40/17 used track tires

30 May 2017 - 09:51 PM

one set of Maxxis VR-1 with some tread left - one of these has an extra groove cut in it (not all the way through, errant piece of metal on car dug in on a spin) has been that way since before we raced them at COTA, never a problem, doesn't wear or grip any different.

 

one set of Dunlop Star Spec ZII with some tread left - raced in endurance race and some track test time - one of these has a plug/patch from Discount Tire in it (yes we got a flat in a race, how lucky).

 

both have multiple weekends on them, but aren't enough tread for another endurance racing weekend, so moving these out for new sets.  Both sets will easily get through a DE weekend (and probably more depending on how rough the track is, good for multiple weekends at COTA or TWS with me driving).

 

$200 for all eight tires...

 

or $150 for either set.

 

I'll work on getting some pics up if needed, but they look like track tires with hours on them... I am in North DFW area.
