Locost, fury body turbo fireblade for sale £2,500

I'm surprising myself by selling this, built maybe 15 years ago this is what you get.

Locost scratch built frame shortened a few years ago to fit a Fury body.

The car is MSA log booked, rear hoop harnesses etc for sprinting (sports libre) I take out the extinquisher as its heavy comes with the car.

Engine 918 blade with lockup clutch was dyno'd at 201hp many years ago, the clutch cost £500
Brand new turbo £500 all plumbed in needs to go to Dale for a rolling road session.
Megasquirt v1 running fuel only, with the parts to add sparks as well, needs sorting out worth maybe £200?
Accusump £150
3.14 CWP built into a sierra 4x4 LSD £400
3 sets of wheels, minilites worth £400+
GAZ shocks, corner weighted and a handful of others springs as I got the handling up to scratch

It's been left to long now, needs going through as I have been sprinting my other car for 5 years.

It's a capable car, very fast and good fun, before the fury body it was just under 400kg all in, now maybe 430kg

Paintwork is poor.

Plenty of pictures in my archive, for a little effort you can be competitive

£3000 you get the trailer as well

I have bought an old XJS and fancy racing the with the JEC so run out of space, sale is to fund fitting this car out.

I live near Newbury for anyone that wants to view, if it does not sell I will find a home for it.


Cheers

Mark

I'd be very interested in the turbo lump and all the associated bits and bobs if you were to split.

Just not using it Simon, if it does not sell I will dry my eyes and keep it

My XT500 sale is going well so I think this is the direction

Looks like my little car is off to Germany, a little sad as itís been with me for a long time now but better it gets some use.

Money is going into my racing pot, hereís my new weapon



Lots of stripping down to lighten it up!

Thanks for collecting so promptly Rick

Take care of it = drive it like you stole it faster the better so hit the corners hard, once the tyres warm up the grip improves and it becomes amazing !
