SR Racing is Retiring before 2014

Post by SR Racing »

SR Racing owner is retiring near or at the end of this Race Season.. I am old and have retired twice.

Everything will go and it's all paid for.

Not ready to go yet, but here is some things you can think about if interested. I will part out or sell as a lot. PLEASE before making stolen offers, look around the web for comparable prices. I am willing to make some great deals, but won't give it away. I have plenty of time. (If I don't reply, your offer wasn't serious. :lol: ) I will answer any questions about the items, listed, (or things not listed.)
If you want to start your own retail business, here is a great time. I have lots of new inventory, (Suits, Helmets, Racing parts, tools, etc.) in the showroom to start turnkey. Get a (big) truck and take everything.

Stuff going:

Freightliner Toter with Featherlite Trailer.

Toter - CAT engine, 6 speed semi-auto, 14 ft house. CB, 2 Stereos, Flat Screen TV, 3 Way fridge, Microwave, Stove, Shower, 7KW Diesel GenSet. Maybe ~85K miles on it at the end of this season. 2001, bought in 2002.

Double deck Featherlite trailer, 3 Axles, Hyd Elevator, holds 4 Formula cars, lots of lightning, power wench, observation deck, Lista Cabinets, lots of storage, 1HP Air Compressor, all hoses and plumbing front and back. (for the right offer it might come with a large pit cart and Honda ATV)

Nice large Pit Cart. Auto type steering, fits in the trailer with a ATV and 4 formula cars or 2 stock cars.

Superflow Engine Dyno. SF-902 with full console. Lots of sensors, spares and extra stuff. (Fuel flow, air flow, EGT's, 02's, computer and more.) 1000+ HP through 40 HP, adapters for VW engines. Headers for multiple V8's and VW. All original documentation. Will train and help install if logistics permit.

Superflow Chassis AutoDyn dyno. (2 wheel drive). Both inertial and Eddy current loadable. 1000+ HP.
02, fuel flow, air flow, and more. In ground type. So you need a 4ft hole in the ground. (or build a platform.)

CNC Mill. Trak K3, with Prototrak console. Includes Bobcad software. Comes with lots of bits, cutters, collets, etc. All documentation.

Crank Balancer, CWT Multi-Bal 5000. Flat Screen monitor, printer. Includes a Mill, that is used to drill the crank and or flipped to reverse side for general milling/drilling. Comes with tools, collets, etc. All documentation.

Enco Lathe with many tools, chucks, etc.

Large Ultrasonic Cleaning tank. (VW Case will fit) 2 Sweeping transducers. All Stainless Steel

1 XTC Formula First Conversion. (on track one time.) Like new.

(Buy the cars and the Toter/Trailer and start a team or rental business.)

Multiple tool chests, with multiple tools.

Large 5HP Ingersoll Rand Air Compressor

There is lots more and I will put it somewhere on my web site (and EBAY and local) with photos and more detail, when the season slows down a bit. (sracing.com)

SERIOUS inquires only. Jim (859-252-2496)

I don't want to keep bumping this thread, but I am adding additional stuff to the items being sold. (On the original post.)

So keep checking it for those interested.

Jim I am real sorry to hear that you are retiring again but I understand that since I just did myself. Where is everyone going to get all of the specialty stuff the vee's need to keep running? Since Lybarger retired you are the only shop left that caters to the vee community that actually has the parts the class needs.
I hope someone would or could just buy the business and keep it going but we will have to see about that.
Good luck!

Thanks Ed.

We are going to continue the FV/FST parts sales indefinitely. There are a few items that we make (oil manifold blocks, offset camber bushings, etc.) that MIGHT come to an end. However, I am toying with the idea of keeping my CNC Mill and Lathe and moving them to a large outbuilding I have at my home. (Same place where most of the FV/FST inventory is.) If so, not much changes except for engine building, car prep, rentals and most safety equipment. Only bad news for FV is I will no longer be scrounging junk yards and VW meets for backing plates, spindles, etc.

I would love it if a ACVW lover, bought everything intact, but I doubt that will happen.

So keep ordering... :lol:
