I ended up liking this car way more than I ever expected, but rallycross has fallen off the radar lately and I need the garage space so it's time to let this go. This car is remarkably fun and easy to drive, for rallycross and on track, and on the street for that matter. It only ever saw a handful of rallycross events, but it's undefeated including 2018 rallyx national championships and the Ohio national challenge event this year. On track I'm not sure you could get much more bang for the buck in a car that you can drive to and from the event comfortably. Fix the A/C (details below) and it's about as close as you can get to a do-it-all car. I'll clean it up properly and take better photos sometime this week. Located in Columbus, OH.

 

Overview:

The Bad:

-A/C doesn't work. May just need a recharge. I never looked into it because I never needed to drive it much in the summer

-Turn signal stalk recently had some kind of internal issue. Signals still work but the right side no longer auto-cancels.

-The front clip plus the driver's door has been repainted at some point. Paint match isn't amazing, and the work is just okay. Overall it's a solid 10-15 footer I'd say. No signs of structural damage, alignment is good and adjustments are pretty even side to side

Extras:

-New oil filter and any other spare parts I’m forgetting
