  • FS: 2007 R1 Powered Locost 7

    For sale is a 2007 Locost 7 powered by a Yamaha R1 Motorcycle engine. $14,000

    You can reference my post at the end of the For Sale ad here:

    The car is based on a CMC frame that has been extensively modified for both safety and performance. The chassis has the dimensions of the original “bookâ€‌ Locost design. Below is a list of features on the car:

    -2003 R1 Engine (160HP Fuel Injection)
    -6-speed Sequential Gearbox (Bike Transmission)
    -Toyota 10-Bolt Rear End with TRD Limited Slip (3.31:1 Gear)
    -GAZ Coilovers and Eibach Springs
    -Wilwood Calipers Front and Rear
    -Twin Master Cylinders w/Cockpit Bias Adjuster
    -Full Roll Cage
    -Kirkey Race Seats and 5-Point Harnesses
    -JAZ 8 gallon Custom Fuel Cell
    -Two Sets of Wheels

    This car was built by hand over the course of several years. Both the front and rear suspensions were redesigned and built to work with the components used. The entire build was documented from start to finish here: The “Constructionâ€‌ tab has all the build details. You can also read about the development of the car and see videos of it in action.

    The car was built to be a track/autocross car specifically, and is not street legal. It could be made that way with some additional lighting and wiring. I have completed most of the California SB100 process. BAR Smog Exemption is complete, CHP VIN verficiation is complete, and Brake and Lamp inspection is left to complete.

    It has been a great track car, the previous owner has competed in several time trial events in the Southeast, as well as participating in the very first Grassroots Motorsports Ultimate Track Car Challenge. It even earned the SPU class championship with the Tarheel Sports Car Club in 2008. Since I've taken ownership in December 2011 it has seen 12 HPDE track days in Southern California. It is fast, easy to drive, easy to maintain, and very easy on consumable parts.

    But I bought an Elise, so I'll still be around and would love to participate in track days, dyno days, and blats, of course!
