Custom Fiberglass seats (see options list below for a wider version of these as required to fit a broad range of occupants). These are SLC-specific seats that are designed to maximize the available space in the cockpit. These seats optimise the available seating height whihc is expecially important for taller drivers. Our experience is that for taller drivers, very few aftermarket seats will fit as they tend to be too high, and often foul the door with shoulder wings that are too wide.

Brake Upgrade Package. Front 15" Brembo floating GT discs with 6-piston Brembo GT Monoblock calipers; rear: 14: Brembo floating GT discs with 6-piston Brembo GT Monoblock Calipers.
Electric/Hydraulic lift kit for one axle (front or rear). Lifts the front or rear of the car about 3"" for improved clearance over speed bumps, on steep driveways, etc. Invaluable to protect your splitter and front end from scraping. Includes pump (one pump can lift one or both ends of the car), 2 spring mounts, 2 lift units, remote reservoir, appropriate lines to pump, and flex lines to lift units from pump. Once the first lift unit has been purchased, the other end can be plumbed in using the same pump, and at a lower cost than the alternative of having to buy two separate lift systems.
Handbrake assembly. Handbrakes are required for certain licensing situations, and RCR provides a subsystem that meets the demanding Australian ADR and UK IVA regulations that actually measure effectiveness. Consists of Brembo-sourced calipers, a custom handbrake lever and all necessary lines and fittings. Designed for the standard brakes, but available with extra cost for the upgraded brake package.
Interior panel Kit. This comprehensive kit is all that is needed to form the foundation of a world-class interior for the Superlite Coupe. As seen in turnkey cars, it includes a custom roof cover, 2 A-pillar covers, 2 lower door trim panels, 2 door blend transition covers, and a custom bulkhead cover. Furnished in fiberglass, and trimming with appropriate covering is required for a world-class appearance.
Fully-trimmed supercar-quality interior. Consists of all optional panels, fitted and trimmed in your specification for materials. Because the materials and details vary, these can only be quoted on an individual basis, after the materials and design are finalized.
FIA Bladder fuel tank. For racing purposes, or just extra safety on the street that exceeds production car standards, a fuel cell is required. These cells are custom-fabricated to our size and plumbing specifications, and meet all applicable FIA, SCCA, NASA and other sanctioning body rules and requirements, per the manufacturer. Price varies, depending on options and size, but for planning purposes, normally start and $2100 and go up.
Sway bars, front and rear. This comprehensive kit uses NASCAR-style bars so they are easy to swap out for tuning purposes, as well as allowing fine-tuning by use of the included adjustable links.
from $2100
Wheel Upgrade: Rotary-forged wheels , very light weight, in 18X10 (or 18X11) for the front, and 18X13 (or 18X14) in the rear. Available in natural finish only; you may powdercoat or anodize as needed. Specifically sized to fit the Superlite Coupe, these are a tremendous value considering their size, weight and strength. They look great, too!
Race front splitter. Consists of a splitter with a longer, deeper fascia that allows more air to be pushed up, instead of under the car. Designed for very low clearance race applications, not suitable for street use. Designed in conjunction with a renowned NASCAR aerodynamicist and uses a proprietary design to evacuate air from under the car using tunnel-effect construction.

Race side skirts. Like the street skirts, but deeper, to manage airflow under the car better under racing conditions.

Factory Body fitment. Consists of aligning the body on the chassis, fitting and hinging the doors, assembling and adjusting the door strikers and handles, aligning the front and rear sections to the central spider section, installing the front and rear body latches, installing hinges (if purchased) and installing and testing the gas struts for the doors.

Factory Body prep. Consists of cutting out all apertures for lights and scoops, trimming side scoops and roof mount with grille material.

Upgrade to wider "Gentleman's" seats. Approximately 2 inches wider than the standard seats, these can accommodate occupants that cannot fit comfortably in the standard seats. The extra width may require them to be offset slightly relative to the steering column centerline, but the column may be moved to re-center with the seats if needed.

Race Roll cage Upgrade. Adds increased stiffness, and meets FIA, NASA and SCCA regulations for race car safety in most of their series- consult RCR for details before you select this option. Includes side bars that dramatically stiffen the door openings, tie-in bars to the front suspension area, additional cross bracing inside the monocoque in the front to add stiffness in the front, and other miscellaneous changes to the cage. Bolts in, and requires no welding, so it is easy to remove if you decide to convert to the street, or upgrades are added later. Interferes with the optional lower door panels (which are not needed in a race car).

Race column. This is a traditional, lightweight racing steering column with no switches, no collapsible internals, and no electric anything. Price reflects discount from appropriate stage or complete kit.

Adjustable pedals. Consists of a CNC aluminum plate mounted to the monocoque that allows the pedal set to be moved forward or backward as needed for different drivers. Requires that a nut be loosened, after which the pedal assembly can be re-located further forward or backward. Simple, lightweight and inexpensive.

CV Joint Upgrade. The standard CVs and axles are rated for 1000 HP. For more powerful engines, or drag race duty, even stronger joints are available. Please contact RCR before the complete kit or axles are purchased as this is a replacement option, not an add-on. These upgraded CVs are in use at the highest levels of motorsport, and are almost unbreakable.
from $1395

Custom shift cables. RCR can assist with procuring reliable shift cables from it's extensive supplier network. These cables are reliable, resistant to heat (though not immune to extreme temps, so routing and insulation must be considered), and are custom made to fit the requirements of each car. Since every builder can locate the shifter where it works best, the cable lengths must vary as well. Also, routing differences will alter the nominal length. When you are ready to install the shift cables, contact RCR to help in learning how to measure the correct length. RCR will then procure the correct cables. Prices vary but are in the $300-400 range.
Electric Door openers. Instead of using the provided manual door handles, the SLC can be built with electrically operated door openers. This kit is sufficient for two doors, and includes the necessary solenoids, poppers, wiring and details needed to convert your doors. Uses the standard hinges and latches, so no changes are needed to those. Requires an alarm or other electrical system to provide actuating logic to the openers.

Chassis-mounted Carbon Fiber wing, including mounting brackets and required hardware. This wing is substantially lighter than the fiberglass wing, and has a more developed chord for increased downforce. It is constructed of a very lightweight honeycomb base with strong carbon fiber applied for strength. The wing has the "dry" carbon fiber look characteristic of autoclave-built products, but has been covered with a clear coat to display and protect the intrinsic beauty of the carbon fiber. Comes with aluminum side plates. Designed to allow on-track adjustability of angle of attack for tuning rear downforce for different circuits.
Aluminum hinging rear wing mounting system, suitable for either wing, not needed with "street" rear clip

This is great- it allows people to buy the car in stages, instead of having to come up with a big hunk of cash. That makes the car accessible to a much wider range of potential buyers.

And it details the value of what exactly is in the kit, along with an expanded list of options, some of which were not previously advertised.

It's noteworthy that even as the SLC has added content, the price has remained constant over time, if you buy the car in the same way.
