Description

This Elan underwent a complete nut-and-bolt restoration/competition preparation during 1998-1999 from an Arizona (minimal rust) basket case. It was largely disassembled in late 2000 to repair minor crash damage and add development tweaks from early races. After completion in late 2002 it has had approximately one hour of on-track testing. The punch list from this testing was closed out and pre-race prep performed. Other than needing tires, the Elan is ready to drive onto the track.

Preparation details not listed below include
Front Suspension: Upper front A-arms reinforced and fitted with Delrin bushings, Lower front A-arms reinforced and fitted with spherical rod ends, Spherical bearing upper damper mount, Redesigned front anti-roll bar with spherical bearing links, Large spindle front uprights, AN bolts
Rear Suspension: Rear A-arms fitted with nylon bushings and spherical rod ends, Spherical bearing upper strut mount, Adjustable rear anti-roll bar, AN bolts
Brakes: Elan+2 front brake calipers and discs, Cryogenically treated rear brake discs, Dual-circuit brake master cylinder, Stainless braid/Teflon brake hoses
Steering:Adjustable (length and height) steering column, Needle bearing steering U-joint, Solid aluminum steering rack mounts (bump steered)
