Does he have it advertised on the internet or just by word of mouth? If by internet, do you have a link to it?

Tippy

This is a done deal, The Bello era has come to an end, at least for now, the whole car is for sale "AS IS" after the wreck, selling price $52K. Engine + gearbox alone $49K.

Want to know whats inside the engine? a $500.00 non refundable deposit, this is to cut all the nonsense of going back and forth for all the tire kickers out there that just want to know what's inside the engine.

Dyno sheets available and plenty of videos.

So Juan, what caused him to sell? Was he concerned with safety and his life?

After what wreck! ?? I didn't hear about it.

I can understand wanting to bail, time to move on.

From Sir Bello via FaceBook:

"I was doing the numbers and I just can't do it at this time. To do this all again in the future I doubt it. I'm happy when all I have done I can't be that ungrateful I have to think about my future now. I want to thank everybody that stood beside me, HKS that believes in me when I first built the car, Frank at the driveshaft shop for his support with the axles, South Bay fuel injection, and Rob from force performance turbo chargers for all his help, all my fans for all your support, I want to give thanks to Tim red dragon ,ICS in Connecticut, Marco at billet design, jack from horsepower logic, technology R in the Bronx, marrio from proformance wheels, pj , Felix medina, and many more thank you".

He'll build another one, he just needs time to shake off his fears of hitting the wall.

Well, considering he was most likely doing well in excess of 100mph....and I mean welllll in excess....it could be a life defining moment. This can be a risky hobby/occupation, and we all like to think "it always happens to the other guy". I've only been in one "real" crash in my life; it aint a lot of fun and I've never forgotten it.

I hope he can recover his witts and do it all again with a new machine, but meanwhile that's probably one heck of a good price for some serious muscle. With that setup, I could motor through my little hole in the wall town's 3 stop lights in nothing flat.

I don't think a 4wd would have darted off to the right like. It would have (possibly) given you much more control or "advance notice".
