Anyone in the mid-atlantic area interested in a turn-key PF car? I've raced this 2006 Mazda 3s for the last 2.5 seasons and it's been an extremely reliable and quick car. Looking to change things up for next season so I figured I'd see if anyone would be interested in it as-is before I take all the goodies off.

Some features:

Professionally installed MFactory race pack LSD

ABS is deleted

Mazdaspeed3 springs with KYB shocks

Aluminum Skid Plate (it's pretty stout but will need some repair this winter)

I'll throw a set of wheels with worn but serviceable gravel tires.

Mazdaspeed front seat

Located in south central PA.

Lowered price for GRM $2000.

It's true! I have vehicular ADHD so it's time to find it a new driver.

Hows the rust? Is it daily-able?

OOOooohh and me looking for the next car.  Missed the $1200 Civic on Marketplace.

There is some rust in the normal spots you'd expect but I've definitely seen much worse. If you were to take the side skirts of there might be some surprises hidden there but I'm not sure. It's not currently inspected because I didn't need 5 cars on the road during the pandemic, so I've just been trailering it to events lately. I'm sure it'd pass inspection again. 
You could daily it if you were comfortable with the abs delete and mods made to the car to fab skid plate mounts. Also the poly speed3 engine mounts cause a decent amount of NVH (looks like I forgot to mention those in the list of upgrades). It's also got Speed3 front seats that I forgot to list, which are pretty nice.

Now that I'm pretty sure I won't be driving in PF this year I figured I'd bump this thread. Don't really need to sell it but on the other hand it kinda sucks just seeing the car sit around unused. So, figured I'd see if anyone was interested.

2.3. Luckily, it seems to be a pretty healthy one - no oil loss/burning issues.

I didn't bring it to last weekend's event, but if you want to take a look at it, just let me know.

By the way if you are looking for a different car one of my buddies was really interested in buying your SER whenever you're done with it.

Bump. Still available, still torn on whether I'd rather keep it for other shenanigans, but also know it should not just be sitting in my yard being unused. I'd like to move this to a loving home if possible. Make an offer!

Dusty from rallycross :)

As I recall everything is good except for a small crack in the dashboard that leads from the windshield to the opening for the defrost. It's all stock otherwise except for the mazdaspeed3 front seats.
