I can also see keeping it original for the value... me I like to set them up for personal preference, and my can and trailer hitch had to go.... my eliminator used the factory signals but I had to change to a shorter style to clear the bags...

Before and after....

I don't road course so....I haven't really been on any tracks, although I did go to MSR to spectate a couple times.

I used to drag race bikes a lot and always ran at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown and occassionally Sealy. Then I Land Speed raced a few times in Goliad Tx at the Texas Mile. I haven't been on a track in 5-6 years now on the bikes... I've been racing cars for the last 5 years.

Soooooo, I started looking into plan B...the SP1...certainly not a slouch bike itself. Anyway, just as I'd convinced myself that the SP1 was the solution, karma came along and slapped me upside the head. Some amazing timing and some very special stars aligned...and today I was able to purchase an SP2.

Now begins the long wait until October/November delivery, but I'm seeing a therapist for that lol. Until then, I'll just look at these and drool...
Good for you! Congratulations. What's the top speed of that bike? I am not really into sportbikes so no idea how capable or how it compares like to an R1

That's cool...what kind of cars? Used to be a big time track with my '88 Conquest TSi, and my '93 Eclipse GSX before that.

I have not a clue! There's various reports as to performance specs, but I've learned you have to pay attention to the configuration. The base SP2 is incredible...but HRC has various kits for it that add even more performance. And Ten Kate is already putting stuff out for it as well. Paul would be a better source for that information than I.

Well both cars are apart right now. The '88 is the rare San Marino yellow. It's on stands right now...it's going to my buddy Alex (owner of Costa Racing in Conroe) in horse trade we worked out.

The '86 is the real project...complete resto-mod. Took it apart in February 2011.

Spent about a year collecting (or fabricating) the ultra-rare limited OEM parts that everybody wants but nobody can find...'83 vented hood, turbo door handles, SHP fronts and rears, Upper rear spoiler, one-piece front valence, blah blah blah.

Sent the motor to HMS...Bored .40 over. Piston rods shot-peened. Piston heads replaced with .40 over Wiseco and ceramic coated. Non-jet head installed. Balance shaft elimination. Upgraded to a 17C turbo with a clipped impeller wheel. Converted from TBI to MPI and using MP3 for air/fuel management. CX Racing two-core radiator. CX Racing three-core intercooler and all-aluminum intercooler piping (lots of detailed touches to get this to work). Alex is working on the wiring loom as I type this. And a lot of the typical upgrades (TPS, FPR, Optima red top, etc etc.)

The body went to Mark Wade (Burton Customs in Seguin TX). He had the car for 20 months...we did everything. The car was originally white...it's now painted blue (Mitsu Ruri Blue T70) and accented with Maize yellow (I'm a UofM fan). Everything came off the car, and a bunch of cool little details and improvements made.

Suspension is now D2 Racing Ride Smart Coilovers all around. Front brakes upgraded to Willwood 3-pots, and having custom sway bars fabricated.

We should actually being doing first-fire on the motor in the next month or two...super excited for that. Anyway, I'll keep you posted if you're interested. Here's a few pics...

Wow pics are way too big...let me adjust and post in a follow up...

Holy !!! That sounds rediculously awesome! Sounds like you know your too. I will totally be following on this.

The conquest/starion was always a personal favorite of mine, had I an endless amount of income one would be in the stable.

Basically this is my dream car. Wanted one since I saw one on the lot at Steve Tatone dealership back in 1987...now it's finally coming to fruition.

Now if I can just secure this SP2, I'll be set lol

Congratulations man, looks like a of a ride! Love that blue too. I'm drooling over here.

Sorry to take the thread off topic. I'd love to see a build thread in the car section.

That blue looks legit!

There is a guy that comes to our Kemah car show on sat nights that has a late 80s Starion thats mostly original with some bolt ons....Neat ole car..

I've been building/racing Vettes of different generations for the last 7-8 years.... Last year I sold my fast one (900rwhp C5Z) and bought a new C7Z just to cruise in....I got tired of blowing the money on the other one and always having it broken.

I've never had an import but always been facinated with Supras and early 90s RX7s...(LS swapped of course).
