This showed up at the office today...

I've been pretty lukewarm on the new Zupr4, but there's no denying it looks sexy in that pic, eh?

Why does it have to be crushed? Sorry if I missed a post explaining that.

I believe it is because he receives a preproduction vehicle which cannot be legally sold.

Two poles, two championships, two runner-up finishes in four Runoffs starts, and we thank you by sending you off to the crusher. Vacation starts tomorrow.

Too bad they have to be crushed eh.

Getting the cage out is easy... Rebuilding the ship in the bottle is more of a challenge - most every cage guy wants to do his own thing, bring them someone else's project to put back together and it will cost more.

Just have to figure out whats next... Have tons of spares from the 2015 and 2018, so I could easily build a 2012-2018 to replace this one.

But I also like the sedan. Longer wheelbase, lower roof, and dirt cheap compared to a 2012+ hatch.

All the mechanical bits will fit either.

Nothing there crosses over to H Prod, would just start with a clean stock car.

I figured as much, but thought it might be a decent deal on the chassis.

I ended up getting the 2ZR from ArmstrongRacing. The plan now is to make it an (uncompetitive) STL build and just do regional stuff with SCCA/NASA/GridLife, track days, etc. If you end up going with a sedan, I'd love to pick your brain on some chassis/interior prep.
