Benny, there are some finished 2nd gen EX IMSA cars, and some GT cars for sale. They run ~30K for a complete car with a 3 rotor, and spares. I have not seen any rollers, but I would research who used to run them, and then track the cars down, I'm sure some are just sitting in somebody's collection. Check some of the sites linked to JGTC, and Grand Am, they often have high end rollers from other venues. There are quite a few of these cars in AU, as they can run in a series there.

Here is a link to the website, http://www.cityperformancecentre.com/
go to customer cars, then go to "circuit cars", then go to centreline suspension RX7. The car weighs 850Kg, and makes 490rwhp on a PP 20B.
Enjoy, this is quite a car. Carl
Sorry about the thread-jacking Benny.

I've seen the 7's only car, it looks like a 7/8 scale car! But it does look well setup, and they are very very fast. They were selling turn-key cars for 25K last I saw.

Peter Ferrel (PFS) is selling his tube frame FD. I know he lowered the price quite a bit from last year.

Its his old road racing car, but I don't speak with him. You'd have to contact him yourself.

the Peter Farrel cars are not "tube frame" cars. What Ben is talking about is a race car built entirely out of tubing. it is not a stock RX7 with a cage, but a race car built from tubing with a fiberglass body. similar to how NASCAR stock cars are built. this would be like an SCCA GT2 or 3 car or maybe an ex IMSA GTU or GTO car. IMSA street stock and World Challenge cars start life as stock cars and are modified for racing. a tube chassis car is a designed and built for racing chassis.

Yeah, I've seen the PFS car you are talking about, and it is definitely not a tube-frame. It is Peter's old Bridgestone Supercar series entrant.
