'89 Civic Si STS car for sale
« on: August 30, 2016, 02:55:42 PM »
Ok, a little more serious about selling this, as I plan to move on to something else by the end of the year.

Car just won the PittRace MT with me driving it not all that well. A local (with Civic experience but who's never driven this car) also jumped into it on Sunday and in 3 runs qualified for the Top Dog challenge and then went to the final 3.

It's a good car.

Anyway, $8.5k for everything Civic that I have. Also interested if you would like to trade for a twin (stock, Street, or mild STX prep), with cash coming from me.

That includes pimp stuff on the car like:
* MCS shock package w/Karcepts top hats that were new last year
* SSR 15x7.5 wheels
* Proparts upper arms
* Custom upper arm mounts to get caster
* Realtime Racing motor
* Karcepts hubs
* < 2 lb LiOn battery w/ lightweight mount.
* Coast Fab exhaust, repacked with Andy's magic packing stuff.
* No rust on anything.

Plus all the "normal" STS parts like a Corbeau seat (a new one, not the awful one Rich had. :-), harness setup, pulleys, DC Sports header, etc. etc..

It also includes some quality spares like:
* Koni SPSS shocks
* complete rear trailing arms
* Rota 15x7.5 wheels
* 4 speed (non-Si) trans if you want to go to LPEP

And the various "normal STS Civic spares that folks gather" like distributers, starter, alternator, fender liners, various brake parts, various suspension parts, ecus, etc.

If you're looking to spend less, I can also split out the MCS shocks and SSR wheels as optional things.  I.e.:

$5k, car per above except with konis and rota wheels.
$1k (if purchased with car), SSR Wheels
$3k (if purchased with car), MCS shock package

I think the MCS shocks make the car easier to drive at the limit, particularly with any type of bumps, but aren't strictly required.  As for the wheels, the Rota wheels are a little heavier than the SSR's and that's all rotating mass, but you're talking tenths of a second at best.


On the bad side:
This is a competition car... I'm not sure there's a single panel on the car that doesn't have some sort of dent. It rattles and buzzes and I think its horrifically bad on the street, but it seems like I'm a decent bit more sensitive to that than some. My codriver last year (Greg) drove the car on the street a decent bit going to events and said that outside of needing ear plugs, he didn't think it was that bad. I think he's a bit crazy but? :-)

As I mentioned, I'm also interested in trades for a first generation twin. I think I slightly prefer a Scion, but will consider a Subaru as well. Only interested in a stock one, CS or DS Street prep, or very mild STX prep. No rust whatsoever. Prefer 2014+.  I haven't looked at prices on these very much yet, but money would come from me, its just a question of how much.

Howdy,

Still for sale.  Make Matt your bitch.  :-)

Make an offer as well.  You never know.  I can also seriously reduce the price if you don't want the shock package, for instance.

It's good.  It's really good.  I'm a fan.  ;)  Someone buy this since I can't lol.  Seriously imagine a car that handled so good it made you question if it was even front wheel drive at all.  That's this car.  Greg drove it to 4th at Nationals against one of of the larger classes there.  Someone buy it so Mark can turn his garage into a Hockey rink haha.
