Discovered in a barn in 2003 as a nearly stripped chassis, this ’58 Lister was what most might consider “total rubbish.” Initially fitted with a Jaguar engine in 1961, it was blown up during testing at Willow Springs, bringing the car’s career to a quick and concise end. It was whisked away to storage, where it sat and was stripped, contributing parts to other cars over the decades, steadily heading towards its own demise.
Since finishing the “Parts Car” in November of ’16, I’ve been on a constant quest to improve it. Alignment changes, spring rate changes, and sway bar adjustments have all helped to hasten the car around the track. Its constantly-improving compliance and neutrality have yielded incredible results, helping me to set a new “personal best,” or “PB,” at nearly every track day over the past year.
Our friends at CSF, Players, and Air Lift Performance recently put on the Players Select show a tthe CSF HQ here in Southern California. With a little something to offer for everyone, we picked a few of our favorites from Air Lift’s show coverage.
