m3to335 Posted July 15, 2017 Report Share Posted July 15, 2017 (edited) Sold! Rebirth of a Legend... literally As many of you already know, after 6 years of racing, we were finally taken out by a head on collision in Decembers Chumpionship race. That Legend proved to be a front-runner up until that point. With a long string of podium finishes, Chumpionship wins and FTD’s, we dialed in the recipe for success. With that know how, we decided to take the plunge and build another car. However, instead of us racing... it's for sale. NOTE: If you want to buy a turnkey car, put a half-decent team together and win…this is the car to do it in. If you want to turn laps just for fun….read no further. For sale is a BRAND NEW, ground-up-built racecar. The base is clean titled, one-owner, southern, '95 Acura Legend Coupe 6spd. The Basics: Engine - Bulletproof C32A w/ 230+ HP (complete rebuild with a dash of homebrew ingenuity) Fuel - 18+ gallons w/surge system, allowing well over 2hrs of fuel on any track. Brakes - Acura RL BBK / with proportioning / Reybestos ST43 pads & cooling Wheels - 17x8 Acura TL w/255-40s Other -The finer details (equipment, suspension, etc) will be shared with prospective buyers. What's done thus far: The car was stripped to the bones (even wiring was minimized), the plasma came out, and it was extensively lightened (more than our previous car). It is now caged and the interior is painted, the fuel system and break system is back in. Next is suspension, engine, so on and so forth. The safety items (fire system, seating, net, harness etc), as well as gauges and such will be carried over from the previous car. Essentially, the buyer will be purchasing a lighter, more refined version of what we raced all those years. In short, expect an incredibly easy and comfortable to drive vehicle. It retains the variable power steering, which lets you flick it into a corner with ease. It is very neutral and plenty powerful to hang with just about anyone. Don’t take my word for it, I’ll let the folks chime in who have driven with us over the years. We’ve had everyone from first time racers, to some of the fastest SE36 and Ariel Atom drivers behind the wheel. Spare Parts and Extras This is just the short list off the top of my head. We have literally acquired just about everything imaginable over the years. If it something to keep you going in a pinch, we’ve got it. 3.5L Acura RL engine (Eligible within the current points system. Would require swapping parts from the 3.2 to complete the build). Additional running C32A engine Stage 3 Sr5 Tuned ECU (not installed) Differentials Extra axles Tons of suspension components (trailing arms, control arms, struts, hubs, etc) Spare rotors / pads 8 Acura TL wheels and various spare tires. Aluminum racing radiator Spare fuel pump, injectors, and various fuel system related items. Various electronics and vacuum components (4) Xenon HID Sealed Headlights Custom LSD (on order, and will be made available for the right sale price) Really, the only thing left on the table to make this car a legitimate beast would be this big ticket item. It can be run within the current 500pt cap. You may hear folks on the form say “buy a car you know”. We originally bought our first Legend knowing absolutely nothing about it. There were hurdles with brakes, fuel, and axles, but they were all overcome. We’re not going to just dump a car on the buyer. We'll gladly share our know-how and get you on a preventative maintenance schedule to be successful in endurance racing. Schedules permitting, our target (pie in the sky dream?) is to make the car available during the VIR 24hr practice session. Or buy it soon, and we may even paint it your favorite color. When finished, expect her to look like the build completed last November (below). Price: $11,900 obo Please PM me for contact details or questions.
