    2002 LTU FSAE Car for Sale

    After owning this car for a few years and getting little time to actually work on it, I have decided to offer it up to someone else who may get a chance to get this car back on the track at some point. With life getting crazy and the potential of moving soon, I am selling the 2002 LTU Forumla SAE Car. I purchased this back in 2011 from a previous member of the LTU SAE team and was able to get most of the original parts and get the car extremely close to track ready but very quickly realized I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to programing or tuning an ECU. I have re-created all the CAD for this vehicle in Solidworks as well as completed wiring diagrams for its current (and assumed future) state; both of which are included in this sale (as well as a copy of Solidworks if I can find it). Please feel free to PM me with questions or email me directly at Scruff.mcguff (at) gmail.com

    For some reason I cannot get my photos to attach; email for high resolution photos if interested. Thanks!

    Asking $3200. Currently located in Kalamazoo, MI.


    Current state:

    Vehicle is not in running condition, but needs only a little work to get there (see below). Engine ran off
    of the stock F4i ECU and wire harness in 2014 before being re-wired with the Microsquirt system. Car
    was received in 2011 without any electrical, plumbing, fuel system, or intake and was missing many
    random parts to become a rolling chassis. Since then, the electrical has been 95% completed, all
    “random” parts remade or purchased to make a rolling chassis, and an intake system has been added.
    Original brake lines had rusted through and were removed.


    What it needs to get running:

    1) Finish electrical
    a. Place and wire up battery, wire in fuel pump and fan, and wire in the shift/gear indicator
    b. Program microsquirt ECU

    2) Finish plumbing
    a. Weld in fitting to cooling system for fluid return near oil filter
    b. Hard lines for brakes/clutch cylinder from front to rear to be installed

    3) Fuel System/Fan
    a. Place gas tank and plumb to filter/pump (included) and to engine
    b. Mount fan to radiator


    Vehicle Information:

    600cc Honda CBR F4i (Stock intake)
    Stainless Steel Bent Exhaust with Yoshimira muffler
    Modified Torsen Type 1 Limited Slip Differential

    AP Racing Cylinders/Wilwood Dynalite Single Calipers
    Side mounted aluminum radiator
    4130 Chome Moly Tubing Frame
    Unequal Length, Non Parallel Wishbone Suspension
    Custom Koni MKII Dampers w/ Pull rod Bell Cranks (1:1 motion ratio)
    Adjustable pedal assembly
    Keizer Magnesium Center Wheels
    Hoosier R25A Compound Racing Slicks (4 years old, bagged, but dried out)
    Wired for Microsquirt system
    Custom dash with Gear/RPM indicators and individual fan/fuel controls


    Additional Parts (but not limited to):

    Custom vehicle lift (raises up to 3.5ft and up to 600lbs)
    Original Pneumatic air system
    Original dry sump oil system
    Original fuel tank and new side-mount fuel tank

    ARB for rear of vehicle (exhaust now blocks it)
    Replacement wheel centers
    Other items included:
    Original vehicle design notebooks and data collected from LTU FSAE alumni
    Full rolling chassis, engine components, and brake systems in SOLIDWORKS CAD
    All vehicle calculations, measurements, and formulas for Geometry/Dynamic calculations
