UPDATE - will be Parting out *WRECKED* 99 WRX Track Car

Postby Lostprophet » Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:47 pm

UPDATE: I will be parting out my GC8 so I will post on the parts page as parts become available. If anyone is interesting in a particular part then please let me know so I can make it a priority.

Thanks
Kiel


It is with great sadness I write this post -

For sale is my wrecked 99 WRX track car. Car was crashed and currently I am looking to sell the car whole. Currently I don’t have much time, but if I am not able to sell it I will then part it out.

ABOUT THE DAMAGE
The car was damaged in both the front and rear. Rear damage was only drivers side. To assess the damage to the engine I have cut away the front part of the car. The driver side rail has been pushed against the engine block. The timing belt looks like it has moved and I will include photos of it.

ABOUT THE CAR
In May of 2016 the engine had been rebuilt by Nick at Lux Racing. I had put in a new EJ207 short block. The heads were also reconditioned. The engine also has ARP Head Studs. The car had only travelled 2,623 Kms.
Other work Nick has done:
Half cage built and installed – September 2016
Front brakes reconditioned with new seals and Project mu Pistons. WRX 01 Rear 2 pot brakes and hubs installed – June 2017
BC race coilovers with a racing set up – August 2014
Gearbox rebuilt – August 2014
Braided brake lines installed – December 2013
The car also has a Velo race seat installed with a 5-point Velo harness – I installed in January 2018
I have had Nick look over the car to see if we could save it. The long and short of it is, I don’t have the skills to do most of the work myself and don’t have the funds to get Nick to do it. Ultimately that’s why I have it up for sale. I would have loved to see my old girl up and running again, but I am realistic about what must happen next.
Any questions please contact me
REGO: SMB 128
PRICE: $5000 THIS IS ONLY A LISTING PRICE – I am open to any reasonable offers before I consider
parting it out.
CONTACT: Mobile – 0432 290 897 or PM here

Thanks
Kiel

Glad you are OK, hopefully we'll see you back on the track in the future.

BTW: You've joined an exclusive club within our club. I became a member at PI in the 2016 season, I feel your pain. Kyle and Kurt are also members.

Yeah again, sorry to see this.

Unfortunately it happens and is another reminder about safety in our sport.

GLWS mate.
