[QUOTE=jellonailer;10562060]I had one with zero over revs - until Tor got a hold of it...

True, but after new rear pulley it is running strong. So strong in fact that it is faster around the track than a white garage queen!

If anyone buys this car, and does not like the deviated stitching, I'll swap my sports seats (no deviated stitching) for these with.

Really? 70K for the blue one at the Volvo dealer? Have I been away from checking prices for too long?

Forgot about Cali. The good old epicenter of the real estate collapse. Crazy pricing.

Hi All,

I got this car: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=151067540015

The list of goodies is beyond great including:

A set of BBS Magnesium Monoblocks,
Moton Club Sport adjustable suspension,
DAS roll bar,
Porsche Recaro race seats for both passengers,
six point Schrock harnesses,
Porsche Cup Car headers and exhaust,
Momo removable steering wheel,
2 sets of BBS wheels, one with brand new Toyo R888 tires and two sets of Michelin slicks,
as well as center lock conversion for ease of wheel change.
The shifter has been raised for quicker shifts,
a full track dash data and video acquisition system.

In addition it comes with the original parts, and it would appear that anytime work was done, it was with no expense spared...

The car should be here late this week, early next week, I then have ~4 days to prep it for 6 days in Canada - LCMT & Calabogie - time to relearn how to drive :-)

What should I get for spares - can anyone point me to the part number for the water hoses I need?

Thanks for your help.

Ray

Congrats Ray! That is one serious track car

For the water hoses I just called the dealer and asked for the main hoses that are directly on either side of the engine. Those are the common failure points.

Hopefully the previous owner of your car has had the fitting pinned or welded.

When you are getting the car teched get them to remove all the under belly panels and visually inspect all the water hoses.

I added some extra shielding to some of the hoses that lead from the engine to the front rads since they looked like they had the potential to rub against parts like the drive axles. The hoses that go over each drive axle is supposed to have a heavy duty tie strap on it to keep it from dropping down and rubbing on the axle.
I put an extra tie strap on those hoses as a safety net. I did that based on another RL that had a failure on that hose due to the tie strap failing and allowing the hose to hang down and get worn from contacting the axle.

Remind me of the Calabogie date I may pop up just to visit I have driven that track so many times I don't go out of my way anymore to go there. I do still go to Tremblant though, that track and the surrounding environment I just can't get enough of.

Hi Carm,

Calabogie is: 7/12-7/14
LCMT is: 7/8-7/10


Interesting enough my previous car was a setup Subaru STi - pretty fast car, but not reliable, I got tired of the nonsense and got my wife to agree and started looking last Sunday! I instruct, so I should be easy enough to find

I normally do my own tech, this time I will have a shop I like do a once over because of the lack of time...

Thanks!

Stellar car with the rt mods. Looking at the pics - u should consider relocating the rear motons from engine bay to inside cabin. If your engine is on fire they are goners- just saying. Anyway congrats- u gonna have lotta fun. I do like the sti- what issues u had with it on track? Mike

Hi Mike,

I love the STi, I have 2 for sale now that I got this car - both 2006 one hard core track, the other street...

I can keep up with, and often pass GT3's and TT's. Problem is that this car is very heavy, and has huge problems with heat, and it is under-tired. I have been unable to find an exhaust that can tolerate the extended high heat, and Inconel which quite literally was my last hope is stupid expensive... Things like wheel bearings, and any other wear item were getting worn faster and faster, I was always fixing something.

Good pointer about the Motons - Next week, I need to get the car checked out, flush the cooling, brakes, and perhaps move the reservoirs into the car. I just ordered a set of pads, and I have 3 sets of track tires - R888, and 2 sets of Michelin's - slicks I think.

I also need to look at the suspension settings and see if they make any sense - the PO had the car setup and serviced at a good race shop - so I can only hope that everything is ready to go
