FOR SALE: Turbo Locost

Recommended Posts

I am putting my car up again,going to go to something with windows and A/C!! I had a mishap a couple weeks ago and the drivers top front shock mount broke-thank you Michigan roads. I have since had the mounts welded AND reinforced on BOTH sides and feel it should not be an issue again. Unfortunately when this happened it caused some damage to the nose,I have decided to put TWO prices on the car-one if it goes as-is and one if I have the nose fixed (BTW,a new nose from Kinetic is 200 bucks) The car has been completely completely dialed in and is located in Michigan. Turbo Miata power with 286 crank horsepower and the car weighs 1300 lb - definitely very fun to drive. This is my third

Locost and definitely the best of the three. There is a couple of stress cracks in rear fenders-the previous owner had the car too low in rear and the tires were hitting the inside of the fenders-the car has since been raised and the cracks have not progressed in almost two years of ownership. Car handles beautifully on Bridgestone RE71 tires and is as fast as most other cars in a straight line. I have installed full carbon fiber front fenders and I also have the original fiberglass fenders that will go with the car. Miata rear suspension along with Miata brakes, the car stops and goes very well. The drivers seat is adjustable and the car will fit a taller driver without a problem.
