944 / recent 968 engine trackday / fastroad car road legal MOT to June 2014 (1989) £6,250 SOLD
(mot testers words were 'f*ck me that is a serious piece of kit everything is like new')
This is a 1989 944S2 that has been prepared ready for track / fast road use. Very very thoroughly.
I bought her last winter with the intention of learning her, using her on road to prepare for my HPC entry (needed a manual) and would then spend the rest of 2013 using her for trackdays. However, the bug for racing has bitten hard, and so last Sat passed my ARDS test.....now need to make room for a race car.
So, here she is.
Only last Feb I imported from Lindsey Racing a brand new spec clutch, and new rear diff mount, alongside the full service/tune-up kit and all has been fitted alongside new clutch slave, and new clutch master cylinders, Obviously with all fresh fluid.
The old clutch, and old master cylinder shall be supplied with her, both are still serviceable and the clutch is only half worn. I wasn't in the mood to faff about though with unreliability, and couldn't see a record of a clutch change in the very large history file, hence why the whole kit'n'kaboodle got changed.
Whilst this work was being carried out, uprated rear diff oil and brand new OE rear driveshaft seals were fitted.
It seemed rude to get this far and then not change the brake fluid so that was done as well!
Obviously she was serviced too, and, as written above, this meant leads, rotor, cap, plugs etc etc.
All tyres are Toyo Proxes T1R's with lots and lots of tread and are @2 years old (date of manufacture).
Full stainless steel exhaust.
No rust issues whatsoever. VERY solid car all the way through.
Whats left in the car works, that is to say leccy windows and roof
As indicated in the title she was fitted with a 968 engine by Jaz @5-6 years ago. At this point in time the engine was on 42000 miles, and the 944 had covered 150,000 miles. She now shows 171000.
She is fitted with GAZ Gold fully adjustable coilovers all round.
Running a Promax chip apparantly.
The suspension was set up by the chap that owned her before me, who races (with his son) in the 944 series.
FIA approved seats and Harnesses. Fibreglass doorcards too. Plus half roll cage, also FIA approved.
MO30 brakes with uprated pads.
A very well sorted trackday / road toy. And with good brakes, new clutch, new fluids, good tyres, and a strong leak free 968 engine she is ready to go! Moreover, aside from no leaks, she doesn't smoke either. All is well.
Last week re-sealed rocker cover gasket as there was a slight weep. Underneath is spotless, no crud, nothing 'dark', no deposits and the chain and guide both look perfect.
No dreamers please. This is a genuine sale by a genuine petrolhead.
My phone number is 07843 596 428.
Moreover is solid, well put together, and wants for nothing.
