After 6 glorious years of Seven ownership I am looking for a new owner to care for my 02 WCM Ultralite. The car is in great condition and is for sale only because I no longer have enough time to track it as frequently as I used to. This makes it the perfect opportunity for you to pick up a very fast, well sorted and most importantly reliable track car that is both 100% street legal and comfortable enough to be driven on the street.

The base specs of the WCM Ultralite are:
  • 1400 lbs
  • 240 hp Honda S2000 motor (F22C)
  • S2000 gearbox
  • Subaru differential
  • Wilwood brakes
  • 0-60: 3.5 sec (traction limited)
  • Fully adjustable independent suspension (camber, caster, toe)
  • Adjustable pedals to fit different drivers
  • Adjustable shocks


Over the years I have made several significant improvements to car to make it both safer and more reliable as a track car. The following are just some of the things I have done:

While this list may appear very track focussed, they have also been made with an eye to keeping the car usable on the street. I have ~10,000 street miles on the car including a 2000 mile road trip to Seattle for the 2013 West Coast Lotus Meet



Additional spares/items included with the car
  • Spare differential
  • Adjustable shocks (softer than current)
  • SDS EM3 tuner
  • Balance charger for Lithium batteries
  • lightweight trailer
Included in the package is this lightweight custom trailer that specifically fits the Ultralite. With just an 11 foot bed and weighing an around 600 lbs, this trailer is the easiest way to get the Ultralite to events that are further away. With a combined weight for car + trailer of less that 2200 lbs, this trailer can be towed by most sedans and will not need a trailer brake controller or a 7-pin connector.



The Ultralite is also fantastic fun at autocross and is usually the fastest street driven car at most events. The video below is from me winning the top time of the day at the 2013 WCLM autocross. Click here for more videos on faster and more open autocross courses.



Location: Daly City, CA
Current mileage: 15,575 (will increase as I am still driving it)
Price: $27,000 (includes trailer and spares)
Clear title in hand (registered via CA SB-100)

High resolution current photos of the car are available at https://www.flickr.com/photos/rnair/sets/72157656702113661

Below is video from a recent (July 6th) track day at Thunderhill West. This was its first track day in almost a year and it did not need any maintenance beyond a fluids and pressures check. Once at the track it did over a hundred miles in 100 degree weather with zero issues. Excuse the bad lines as it was my first day on Thunderhill West.


For more information about the car you can find my extensive blog posts about the ownership experience or look at my Flickr account for hundreds of pictures from the last five years. Please contact me via PM if you are interested or would like any more information

Weekend bump for a street-legal track car that is much much faster than an Elise :)

Seen the car, and the seller is good dude. Might want to add details re: seating / height.
Thanks for the plug @zakiu

The car has an OMP Pista race seat in it and fits me (6 ft 1, 210 lbs, size 14 shoes) perfectly. The pedals are on sliders and can be adjusted to fit drivers of different heights.
