Hi Uncle,
Thanks for the kind words, nearly 600 views and 2 comments, I see you are local, near me (no photos of your car on your profile?) I must have seen it, not many around here, what do you think I should be asking for my car?

Hey Steeler, I was just checking your carsales ad.

If I can be honest the stance doesnt look quite right IMO and might be throwing a few potential buyers off. Seems to be sitting high at the front (or front tyre too small)? Can you adjust - not sure what your setup is. It doesnt look typical for a GForce car. Just my 2c for what its worth (...and 2c is about right)

Thanks for your input (over 1500 views now, and very few comments) - It drives great, and the suspension is fully adjustable, the front does not catch on speed humps LOL.

No worries - wind it down and take a few pics and throw them up in your ad I reckon.

I know what you mean though....oil cooler scoop has some nasty gravel rash on mine.

Default Stance

Tenrocca,

I agree, I think the front is too high...........

It needs side pipes to give it that authentic pose, it also will make the car look

lower.

I also think the pricing is a bit rich, 1500 views and no offers says a lot...

My 2 cents worth.....

Rohan

Default For Sale

steeler,

I think the two comments speak for themselves............

Cheap good cars sell quickly, pricier cars (like most things) take longer.

It will appeal to someone it depends on how long you are prepared to wait.

wow,

Looking at Carsales there is lot's of Cobras on there at the moment.

Based on the prices being asked I think they might be there for quite a while. Once you get to a certain price point a new build becomes more desirable in my opinion.

I think that the REAL price to make a nice well finished and properly sorted car, and get it registered on the road is keeping the used prices up where they are.

I know that a number of you put together your cars for a lot less than I spent building mine....but if I wanted it done to the highest level...it had to be done by someone other than myself.
Love the finished car, but it sure can chew up cash to get things the way you want them.
