Do you want to race or do you want to build a car? If you want to race, but a built car. Cheap, used up, whatever. Then pick a race and go.

Yea I was going to say unless someone is good with tubing, welding. Your gonna be spending a pretty penny on the cage alone.

And I think theres a bunch of regulations on the cage too, so you can't just throw some shit together and weld it up :/ You really got to plan it out

Not to be an ass, but every part of a race car should be well planned out. I have spent enough time at speed to know that failing to plan is planning to fail. Seriously. Rule #1 of race cars is that if can go wrong, it will, when you are going over 100 mph, with no run off.

Trust me guys :) I've looked into it. With the guys I know not only in Fetela Rally team, Trauma Rally Team, and well we have Juggernaut Motorsports on here... I'm well aware of regulations and have even calculated costs... I've been looking
On rally anarchy for a plane Jane ready to race zx3. Right now though I'm looking at one of two things, a team, or a wrc replica. Ill probably work on a replica first, but I've always wanted too compete.

I am paraphrasing, but I remember reading the following:

"I'd like to go back to the day that someone introduced me to racing and have them introduce me to drugs instead. They have treatment programs for drug addiction."

The other one that I think applies here is:

"There's a small fortune to be made in racing; just start with a large one."

Good luck.

Did you guys find a car? if you didnt we might be able to use mine... In the near future i am looking to upgrade, a substantial amount. If i upgrade i would happily like to set something up and make this rally team dream a reality. If i dont upgrade we will keep searching for a car.
