Default The "widow maker" comes to town

All... This is the car I have been looking for... well for as long as I can remember. I missed out on purchasing this exact car last year and have finally pried it from the owners hands. Delivers to me on Monday!

The car has a Ruf dog-leg 5 speed transmission, GT3 front suspension, and full race rear suspension. Engine is a dual plug by Dawes Motorsports (PA) with 410HP at the rear wheels at 0.8bar on pump gas.

There's a lot of poser independents out there. Dawes is a class act. I may take my car to them to have some issues sorted out. Having major trust issues with the local shop.

What's with the zip ties on those oil lines?

Nice car. Be safe, have fun.

Yep, I'm re-routing the line awaiting the two fittings I need.

Congrats, that's a beauty for sure. Did the previous owner buy it on BaT? Thought I saw one just like there and admired it then.

Great job on the persistence!
