Contemplating changing cars, no idea what to sell for
I have for years now contemplated selling my Honda S2000 (STU car) for something cheaper to run, and in a class that will have others. Basically I don't want my wallet to have SUCH an impact on how competitive I am in the class. That being said I am looking at B-spec. I like the cars and know that if I really want to race Spec Miata I can always rent one for a weekend. THe TCB's are much cheaper to run and I can race more often and have more fun in a 'spec' class.
My debacle is that I have no idea what to ask for my current car if I sell it. It is a $10k street car, and of course you put in a lot of time and money to turn something from street to race car and never get all of that back. That being said, it is a good car, never left me sitting off track, raced it for about 6 years now, etc. To 'buy from a fab shop' it would be ~$65k, and given it has been raced for 6 years, I am thinking of asking $30k for it. It is not a front running car in STU, as I do not have the money to put into the engine, but everything else is there, it just needs about 70 more hp to be a solid mid-pack car (ahh, the STU issue continues).
It could also go to NASA or ITR, or even STL, T2/3, Production, etc. It's a Honda, it is a solid car.
Just want to get some other people's opinions on it before I take action.
ps. i did look at race entries in my area for b-spec and there are usually 5+ cars at the majors races, and 2-3 cars are regional races. Right now I only do regional and am always the only car in my class.
You need to study the situation in the auto sales market. Maybe someone is selling the same car. If you put a high price, then your car will not buy. Sometimes it is better to put a minimum price to sell your car. That's how I sold my car. It was a price less than I needed to buy a new car. But I had a real buyer. And to buy a new car, I made a loan through https://www.getcash.com/online-loans. This is a credit search service. There are different offers from creditors. You can choose the one that is acceptable to you.
It's difficult to say what to sell for. Especially considering preferable prices. I try to save money too. I read about different programs and strategies. For example, here https://myinforms.com/credit-cards-loans/expedia-for-td/ I found an article about expedia for td which I consider quite useful.
