My only question is why go throught the time and expense of building one when you could have bought one that's ready to race for $6-8k?

You guys race with glass down in vic?

All our local race cars here, production, modified, and gossers all have no glass, generally no inner mudguards and are all barred right from front bumper to rear bumper...

Your class isn't that strict? You running straight fuel or avgas or something higher performance?

I'll never be getting big brakes if that's what they're worth... Trouble is, big wheel makes std brakes look small, big brakes make big wheels look small... So you never win anyway (in terms of look), yours are there for a different reason though...

The reason is some people like making the things themselves... You get more satisfaction out of saying, I built this from scratch... No matter what the cost... Rather than saying oh I picked it up second hand for 6k...

Cheers...

why pick up one ready to race thats been flogged? and prob jave to spend money to have shocks changed and maybe engine rebuilt again thats ganna cost another 3grand and more?

I know this car is all new and i feel safe knowing it doesnt have like bog throughout the car that may have been in accident before....

when i got my corolla got told it had been rebuilt but 2 raced in it blew up and found it wasnt true... sooo yeah it was well worth starting from scratch and i get my kicks from knowing its ganna be an awesome car

yes; there is glass in windows i think u can use perspex if u choose too... i think not sure i just got people to do stuff lol
