Well i finally sold it today.

after not having run since Jan 1 2004 @ 10:30 am. i finally sold the secret services 180sx today. totally stripped of all it used to be. no engine, no drivetrain, no suspension, just a rolling shell.

it is a bitter sweet day for me. i loved that car and would not have my business that i have today without that car.

for those who never saw the videos...

http://www.rs-enthalpy.com/videos

test ride is 408whp

vs. juiced SS is 540whp

others are just dyno videos.

enjoy the memories http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

A new project for yourself Scott, or just taking it easy for awhile?

Is that backwards? I remember when those videos came out and I could have SWORN the test run was the 540whp run...it seems like the car's moving faster in that vid too.

For us who don't know about this car would you list the mods you did to it?
17lbs and 400whp sounds really fun

sorry to hear that scott. i was wondering when that chassis would be sold. is the new owner having any (crazy) plans for it?

::sniff::

this is the car that made me want more turbo, and was like the most sought after car of 240 guys all everywhere. i think we all looked up to it.

Wow, those are early pics. The last version had a blacktop, GT3040 on Full-Race mani, Haltech, top-feeds, greddy mani, etc.

end of an era for ya Scott. That car inspired a lot of people (myself included), dispelled a lot of myths, and generally wreaked havoc. I'm glad you didnt send it to the junker like you planned. None the less, a sad day. http://forums.freshalloy.com/images/graemlins/tear.gif

The legend is gone. Scott, good luck with whatever else you undertake. The car inspired me to get my swap done after I rode in it. This car added value to the entire community because it was a learning tool, either directly or indirectly for everyone associated with scott.

I will personally miss trogdor. I rode in the car when it was only making about 320whp (10psi) and it was ludicrous.

I know I'd buy one for each rear quarter window. Just like many others have said in this thread, I remember that car from WAY back and it definitely has had some influence on my car.
