I am selling my homebuilt FSAE car. I do not have the time or money need to maintain and race it and have decided to sell it. I built this car on a budged so it doesn’t have all the fanciest gear but it does work. I have raced it in about 10 events (some of those being 2 driver) and have only had a failure once. I use it for AutoX racing in the FSAE class. The car does run and drive and I did an AutoX event in the 2017 fall getting the fastest time of the day.
This is a race car so things are going to break. I highly recommend the buyer to be mechanically savvy and be able to fix their own car.
I have a build video on Youtube called “Homemade Racecar – FSAE – MD-2”

-It needs new tires, current ones are pretty worn out.
-The tune need to be worked on, it breaks up a little at the high RPM.
-The starter gear is starting to wear out. You can get it started, but it sometimes makes some bad noise.
-The steering box is a little worn out.
-Battery never seems to hold a charge over 2 weeks
Again, I am being picky. I have raced many times with these “problems”. I just want to make you aware. I will only do local pickup.
