    Thank you, Michael D. I did receive an offer today, from my ebay ad. Not enough $, but still a serious offer.

    Cheers,

    Here are some answers to questions I have received about my Turbo for sale that might be helpful to anyone considering whether to buy mine for sale here, or order a new Atom 3S.


    The oil pressure lettering on the Dash 2 is like the oil pressure lettering on a normal oil pressure gage, in that the lettering is always there. But the oil pressure indicator display on the dash 2, is right under the lettering, and it displays either a zero indicating low or no oil pressure, or a 1 if pressure is normal, as opposed to a gage that displays actual pressure units. Like an idiot light, except it shows 0 or 1, instead of a red light coming on or going off.

    My Turbo does not have the traction control feature, mainly because I ordered this car for me, intending to keep it forever, instead of ordering it for immediate resale, and my preference is no electronic nannies. However, it is my understanding that that can be added if desired.

    The 3S has mandatory Alcon brakes with parking brake, and mine has my preference, the Wilwoods, which seem to me to be easier to modulate, especially so to avoid lockup under extreme braking on track. And my original Atom II, with Wilwoods and over 8,000 miles of mostly track use, still has the original brake discs, and they have never been resurfaced, and still don’t need to be. There is plenty of braking power to lock the wheels at any speed, but easy to avoid locking. The Hawk blue brake pads, already installed on this car, work great on the street, and even better on track. The Hawk pads for the Wilwoods are about $250 to do the whole car. The original factory equipped pads are included with the sale and they are essentially unused. So with my Turbo you get track pads already installed, but not standard on 3S, but available for $458 extra.

    I fabricated a first and second gear lockout for the shifter, for use on track to prevent accidentally selecting second gear when trying to select fourth in a hurry downshifting on corner entry. The accidental selection at speed of second instead of fourth gear happened to me twice, and spun me off track both times. And an Atom buyer client of mine in Houston did his once and destroyed the clutch, requiring him to bring it back to me for clutch replacement, which requires engine/transaxle removal from the car. My lockout is basically fool proof, and easily engaged or disengaged, one-handed, while strapped in the car. It is included in my sale, but not included or available with the 3S.

    My Turbo does not have the seat cover, again a personal choice, but easy add-on.

    My Turbo has six-point belts/harness, not included with the 3S, but available for $328. Mine are RED, by special request.

    The 3S will have the muffler only, and the system will not be Jet-Hot coated, as mine is, and my stainless steel and Jet-Hot coated muffler eliminator not only increases power slightly, but lets the car sound “like a supercar should”, in my wife’s words. The exhaust sound gives me an aural indicator of shift points, whereas the stock muffler did not. This mod is completely and quickly reversible, and the muffler is included in the sale.

    My Turbo has some of the aluminum in the engine compartment polished a bit, that is not done on the stock 3S. I wish now that I had taken a picture of the stock 3S rear view before I prettied it up, but I did not.

    I am including the Hondata FlashPro tuning and datalogging equipment, which is what the factory uses to do the original tune. This allows unlimited tuning and datalogging, and is not included with the 3S.

    My Turbo has both the windshield AND the small individual aero screens, with the nose/bonnet/hood to fit each configuration. The 3S has windshield only. If you want to remove the windshield to protect it from damage when you run the car on track, the parts are included with mine to do the easy change over.

    Mine does not have the removable steering wheel, simply because I quit using that feature on my first Atom, after the novelty wore off. I thought at first that taking the wheel off made getting in and out of the car easier, but after I became used to the car, I find it is easier to actually use the wheel as a hand hold/knee brace to help get in and out. But that can be added if desired.

    Mine has the Carbon Fiber wing package, about $6,000, that is not included in the 3S.

    My Turbo has the Carbon Fiber bonnet/hood/ nose piece that is not included on the 3S, option for $985 extra

    My Turbo has an extra carbon fiber bonnet/hood/ nose piece, to fit the extra cowl that comes with the two little tiny windscreens that are referred to as Aero screens, neither of which are included in the 3S. About $1,400 extra to get them.

    My Turbo has the carbon fiber Airbox cover/Snorkel that is not included in the 3S, but available for $1,785 extra.

    My Turbo has the Carbon Fiber instrument surround, not included on the 3S, but available for $485 extra.

    My Turbo has larger 17” rear wheels with the largest tires ever offered from the factory, the stock 3S comes with 16” rears. My wheel/tire package was an extra $650 for wheels and an extra $477 for the Toyo R888 rear tires.

    My Turbo has the clear Lexan side panels, not included in the 3S, but available for $400 extra.

    My Turbo does not have the roll hoop, again by choice, and I have never used one on any of my Atoms, but it is available and an easy bolt-on or off.

    Hope all this info may be of some help.

    Thanks for looking,

    Eddie FourFather Hill
