    Sounds like a great plan, thx Shane!

    You already know how to drive: not many of us could successfully handle your Stalker without a steep learning curve. But, you will learn how to drive differently(use every square centimeter of track/curb, brake later than ever, accelerate sooner than ever, etc.). You will get there.

    And dont be surprised if your much younger son starts posting faster times than you. Apart from the advantages of youth, he doesn't have to unlearn as much as you.

    Amazing car, and well sorted. Sad to see you go. It's the car that convinced me to buy mine in 2011.

    You should swap engine and transmissions with the miata...

    Shane, Sorry to see your Storker go. I am sure that people do not know how fully sorted that particular car is since you rebuilt it (updated chassis) with many components that were not available to the earlier Stalkers. Someone looking for an exceptional track weapon without a lot of finicky bits will love your car for sure. As Croc and others have mentioned, good on you for getting a couple of Miata's and bringing your son up in the racing tradition and learning about momentum as opposed to brute horsepower. Like my friends Krista and Glenn Minehart, all of their children can outrun them in SCCA autocross events and they are very proud of their brood.

    Whatever you do, keep the secret from Suave that you are selling his fellow Storker. I won't mention this to Les Suave, his evil twin who could somehow try and derail your plans. Much good luck with the sale and somebody is going to get a very well sorted Brunton Stalker! Happy Holidays. Bob Schilling

    That was an astonishing car before the rebuild. The attention to detail was great. The grip and acceleration were both off the charts. I`m sure it is even more impressive now. Whoever buys it is getting agreat car at afraction of what it would cost to build.
