Built to run SCCA STU, but was retired after a major engine failure at WGI a few years ago. I've done some track days with it since then with the currently installed stock engine and trans.

While built to run in STU, the brakes, chassis, body, cage were engineered in a manner that permit easy conversion to an IT/PT class, to fit a smaller budget, or you can reinstall a high output engine to run in STU. 

List of features and components included.

Note: All brake and suspension mods are easily reversible if you intend to run as IT or PT

High quality custom built chrome moly 6 point cage, with window and mid net.

Momo seat and wheel, with 6 point harness.

4 wheel disc brakes, with 4 pot front calipers, custom CF ducting, SS hoses, and brake bias valve. 

Koni yellows cut down 2", with coil over conversion, with custom valving by true choice in Ohio. 

Spring rates are 500F 450R

24mm adjustable H&R front sway bar, 28.5mm Steeda sway bar in the rear.

Front suspension geometry extensively reworked for anti dive, bump steer, both static negative camber and negative camber gain, and fast steering ratio. All bushings and ball joints etc replaced with metallic equivalents, torrington bearings, spherical bearings etc. 

Rear suspension upgraded with all poly bushings.

15x7.5 Rota Slipstream, with 225 45 15 Hoosier R6 

Custom front air dam/splitter and rear wing built to 2010 SCCA STU specs. 

Traqmate data confirms consistent average lateral g's around 1.25

Originally, I was running a highly modified 2.3L Naturally aspirated Duratec, with 215whp. 

After a catastrophic failure at WGI I've reinstalled a stock 2.3L engine and trans. 

But the vehicle includes the custom mandrel bent 3" exhaust, and custom made SS long tube stepped header built to my specs by American Racing Headers in NY. 

Full poly engine mounts and cold air intake are also included.  

Lightweight AGM battery relocated behind driver.

Full mechanical autometer oil temp, oil pressure, and  water temp in dash, along with Shift-i 7 segment LED shift light.

Cool suit compatible cold water system, and helmet blower. 

Onboard mechanical fire suppression, with nozzle for driver and engine. Hand held extinguisher also. 

Traqmate data acquisition and basic onboard lap counter. Includes additional input module, I use to capture yaw and cylinder head temp. 

Current SCCA Log Book issued by WDCR SCCA in 2009. Activity raced 2 1/2 years in the Northeast. Original owner from new car purchase through conversion, 100% accident free on or off track.

Total price for vehicle as described above with a small collection of various spare parts etc is $5000, with the following options.

If purchased as a package with the vehicle:

2009 Master Tow dolly, with electric brakes:

MTX-75 trans with FRP 4.06 final drive and QUAIFE ATB differential: +$1,000

4 15x7 Enkei rims with 225 45 15 Hankook Ventus Z214 C51 compound: + $350

All of the above can be purchased as a complete package for $6250

I also have the remnants of the 215whp race engine like full race cams, 3 Carrillo rods  and a repairable $2500 billet crank which I can detail to those interested to know more.
