Here's a video demonstrating the car's pace. After starting from last place at NJMP's Lightning circuit, the car slices through a field of 911s, 2002s, Datsun 510s, and Mustangs to take the overall lead. It turned 1:15s along the way, and that was before some effective suspension adjustments performed later!

Due to family issues on the buyer's part, the car is still awesome, still fast, and still for sale!

I haven't mentioned it for a while, but this car is still for sale! It's been out at Lime Rock, NJMP, and VIR for viewing and could be at your next race weekend with you in the seat!
