The Car

For our first racecar, 413 Racing chose a 1987 Acura Legend coupe.  It has a 5 speed manual transmission, and 194k miles on the clock.  This will be our beast!

**all stats taken from http://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_details1.php

*We weighed the car prior to starting the build, and the stock weight is 3080 lbs with 3/8 tank of gas and no driver.  Hopefully we can get the race weight, including the roll cage and all safety gear, down to 2600 pounds.
