    Just bought a used SRA from Atlanta motorsports Park. Will potentially need parts to make it street legal if possible. I will also need information on maintenance etc. Thanks

    Congrats, Pete and John were great guys and their cars were in really nice shape. They were offering some of the best priced SRA you can get, you done good. I ended up buying a car from a private party but had I not tripped over my car, I was going to buy one of theirs. As far as parts, get used to being frustrated. I have rebuilt a Lotus Elise and a 350Z to track before moving to Atom. Parts for Lotus were difficult to find (which is why a moved to the Z) but not nearly as hard as AA parts. I am finding used parts are very hard to find and very expensive if you find them. Also the AA community is not very large but they seem to be great guys.

    Where do you live? Do you intend to track your car or just try and convert it to a street car. One of the resources I found was Skunkwurx - Ariel Atom Parts & Upgrades | Race Technology Dash2 which are in England and have some aftermarket parts you might need. They seem to run about 50% of Retail but shipping is obviously not cheap. When I was looking at pictures of the AMP cars on ebay, I saw a couple sets of wheels laying around garage. I believe they are also an AA dealer. I suggest you ask them if they have any parts laying around. Another contact is Jesse at TMI who is great to work with and is a great resource. Feel free to reach out to me as we appear to be on a similar journey. Will keep you posted of anything I find, you do the same. Best of luck.

    Thank you very much for the tips. I plan to track the car in the Phoenix Arizona area. There's also a new motor sports club going in just south of Phoenix 30 minutes. I've already put my deposit down for membership. Apex Motor Club | Arizona’s Premier Motorsports Experience. I have decided not to pursue making this car street legal. I was told the extra piece put into the roll cage of the SRA would be very dangerous if you were not wearing a helmet
    I also found out the West Coast Atom dealer is here in Phoenix. I'm hoping with the Honda drivetrain I won't be in too many situations where I'm going to need parts but if I do I will keep these two names you recommended and I very much appreciate it.
    Best of luck to you and your new car.
