this stirs my thoughts about an autocrosser. It weighs about the same as my 280e but has 13" shorter wheelbase.

1. what is the chance it has the limited slip rear end?
2. is the pedal cluster unique to the euro 107?

I have not progressed far enough in my 280e that I couldn't switch my efforts to a different car as long as some of the parts would switch over.

a scruffy one is what would work best for my purposes. Since this one is in TX I would think it would be rust free....
