    This sounds like something for me to try.

    Was the sports racer body for FM's actually a production item? The two I've seen were built by their owners who had modified the cars extensively for enduro racing.

    They are cool, though. I always kinda wanted to drive one going back to the 1980s when I first saw them as a support race at Long Beach.

    Ive throughly enjoyed my single seater experience. 100whp/1100lbs and puts down the same lap times as my 911 turbo on slicks, for a fraction of the cost, its cheap to maintain, and much more involving to drive. You do need aditional logistics, and in case of a crash some parts are special order or need to be fabricated, a competent mechanic or shop IS important when planning to get involved.
    Less powah is better
