track focused car. 231 - SOLD

Post by kiwigaz » Tue Jan 08, 2019 5:43 am

Hi all.

The time had come to part with my car.

I'm not using it as much as I'd like. And I've some other things I want to do now.

Engine is Hayward bridgeport. Built januaury 2016. from a 79K engine that had no issues. Now at 86K
Tertiary bridgeport
Lightened flywheel
Stage 1 Exedy Clutch
Ceramic Apex Seals
RR Lightweight pulleys

oil changed every trackday.

Supporting mods (all new at time of fitting to car)
Full RB header / decat / back box
RB Revi intake and scoop
RR remap
New maf sensor and 02 sensors
Koyo alloy rad and RB hoses

Suspension
bilstein b12 kit with eibach springs
RB Antiroll bars with rb adjustable droplinks
Front and rear subframe reconditioned with Energy suspension bushes and all new camber bolts and new front hubs. (an extensive list is in a document below over £1200 worth)

Brand new set of coils and plugs (prob done about 2000 miles)

Oil / water and Pressure gauges fitted in satnav enclosure.





I suspect the gearbox is on its way out after the last track day. It could just be the thrust bearing but I don't have time to sort it out.

see the build log below for all thats been done to it.

Currently on PZ wheels with good rsr tyres. Also a set of mazda wheels with worn but still usable rsr on.

Corbeau seat on planted subframe. 4 point harness. only 1 year old

spare brand new set of coils.

I think around £2000 is what its worth. If you were to buy these things separately youd certainly be looking at this much.
Cheers

Sorry to read this Gaz and I hope someone sees the car for what it is, a well sorted track machine with all the right mods for handling and power.

Good luck with the sale.
Supercharged and highly customised

I should have various piccies of the car when its been in for parts to be fitted if you'd like some Gaz - pretty sure I sent some at the time but I surely have more.

Shame to see it up for sale but I'm sure it's for the right reasons.

As I said it's hard to value. If I don't sell it quick I'll end up keeping it and spending more money on it!

Shiny shiny more poweeerrrr. Etc etc
