    I am not planning on running it at Mowog 2 - I live by Southdale if you want to come take a look at it. Hobbes and Murph are probably going to be at M1/M2 and they have an FMOD.

          - tried of being raw timed by 29 year old Honda Civics?

          - want the thrill of speed without the bone-crushing punishment of a kart?
          - like being the center of attention?
          - not afraid of new challenges?

            So does the car have "electric assist" steering. An old guy with arthritis would like to know. Thx.

              No, it does not. It is not hard to turn though. Hobbs added it to his car for around $600

                new Polaris secondary and removed electric start so it would fit properly. Still comes with battery, wires and starter.

                New price - $4200

                100 psi compression on the spare motor

                added some pix of the rear suspension

                  Gonna bring it out for M7 or M8 (depending on the weather). If you want a chance to drive it, let me know.

                  On the fence about selling so this may be your best chance.

                    Last chance before I change my mind and and keep it. $4000 Once I put it away, it won't be for sale anymore. I will just make it an ongoing side-project/hobby.

                    You will not be able to get near another functional FMOD for that price and you would still probably have to drive halfway across the country to get one.

                    The car is fun and fast - excellent bang for the buck. I can tell from the view count that you want it, now is the time to act.

                        John, thanks for the heads up but that is the wrong engine. I need a LT1. Actually, I was just shopping for an engine stand and will probably call you to borrow your cherry picker. Unless you sold it. Then I won't.
