SCCA EP 2nd Gen RX7 for sale

As some of you know I bought this car from John Weisberg about 18 months ago and spent money and time restoring it to its former running state. This car was the runner-up in the 2004 Runoffs.

Nearly every part on the car is 1 race and 2 test-days old. I have all receipts and well over $25k into the car. I recently blew the engine at Buttonwillow during testing, not entirely sure of the cause yet. My next step was to have Mazdatrix rebuild, but I will keep the car if I go down that path. It's sitting as it was running, just needs the engine rebuilt. Car was recently wired with a redundant-relay Painless wiring harness, and I just bought the Setrab 60-row oil cooler about 2 hours before the engine blew Engine made just over 208rwhp (chassis dyno with stock timing) and the car was finally getting set-up to the point of being extremely fast. I'm sure with some more tweaking and a new engine (and an appropriate driver!) this will be an extremely competitive car.


My work schedule is becoming too hectic to spend the time I need on the car and racing which forces sale. I'm asking $15k as it sits with all the spare stuff (theres a whole bunch of gasket sets, calipers, spare trans, springs, fuel pumps, etc etc).
