On track incident prior to my ownership. Caraligns perfectly, tracks rock solid and anyone that knows me knows I drive iton track HARD and it's been great. This car has an SCCA log book, a midwesterncouncil logbook (midwest org.) and i race it in VSCDA as well (Vintage sportscar drivers association). It's been a racecar for a lot of years.What's not included:- ECU- Engine harness- Instrumentation- Seats- Engine, transmission, driveshaft, exhaust.This is a rolling chassis. You can easily plug inan S54, S50 variant, K swap, v8, whatever. The chassis is setup and can take itany drivetrain, it's strong and robust and in great shape. It has some racingrash on it and could use some paint love on a few panels, or a wrap but it's aracecar and looks awfully good from five feet.
