The good stuff: The car is in excellent condition, looks great and is great to drive. I have used it for 5 or 6 years since building it and it has
only once let me down (fan belt snapped, modified the bracket and nothing more since). I have driven it to France on several occasions and many a
long trip in the UK without any issues. I have sprinted the car for two seasons and found the car to handle well and be faster than the Lotus Eliseí
and thatís with me driving! The sprinting really made sure that I have everything right on the car so I am confident that any gremlins are taken care
of. When I built the car I used a new clutch, since then I have had the gearbox rebuilt and replaced the CV joints. The drive train is quiet and
solid. The engine has never missed a beat; it started today having been left since last July. Oil pressure is good and the car has never got over
hot, even in the height of summer and London traffic.
The not so good stuff: On one of my trips to France I forgot, momentarily, what side of the road that I should be driving on and hit a French man.
The result was some damage to the front driver side which required a new set of wishbones and a section of the chassis repaired. This meant that the
car needed a complete strip down and in the eyes of the insurance company it wasnít economically viable. So the car has a Cat D insurance write off
on its record. I had the car repaired and then took it to Birmingham to let the ProComp team check its set up and dimensions, they checked everything
and found the car to be straight and true.
So if you are looking for a good looking kit car for the summer and you fancy the odd sprint or track day then this is a great car. If you fancy
flying down to Le Mans for the weekend then this is a great car. I am selling because I donít use it any more and I am currently restoring an Austin
Healey and I could use some money for parts for that. The usage is the main thing though, last year I took it to the kit car show at Stoneleigh and
B&Q once, it is a waste as the car is crying out to be used.
I canít remember the mileage but think it is around 5000 since I built it 5 or 6 years ago
I am looking for £4,150 for it.
Thanks for looking. If you have any questions then please contact me.
