Absolutely the best way to go is to buy a prepped car. It could easily cost you 10 thousand or more dollars to build a pretty plain jane entry leval car (not including the cost or value of the base car). You can often buy a fully prepped (and properly sorted) car for far less. I built my first rally car. It cost far more than I ever imagined. That said, I'd never do it again.
