    My Crown has 4 wheel drums. Would the cost of a front disc brake conversion be in the budget or would it have to be outside?

        dennis, judging by the rules, if i were to buy an r32 gtst with a blown turbo and gearbox for under $1000, is that not aloud?

          Here is the dillema. The cars should be made so their owners can use them after. EG, we all know you can weld a diff for next to nothing. But an LSD would not have better track performance but would make it a better street car. But when you start excusing things like this its going to make a mess of the challenge.

          We should also open this challenge to other forums and clubs after we decide on rules.

            At the end of the day its still 13s for $1300. Still needs to remain a bit of a challenge though else whats the point.

            The cressida is a fairly tidy roller with a340, i was thinking i'd use it as a base if could get an agreed value of $400. I got a 2jzge from ph@tman on here awhile back for a carton of coronas and bought another since for <$100, i already have jzx81 mounts, 1jz flex and bellhousing that i got for free but will add a combined value to these items of say $100, i have an ebay t4 mani that was $189 and still are on ebay, leaves me a bit over $550 to sort an internal gate turbo, + get some more fuel in the thing. I can get the engine running on the 7m ecu and injectors ok.

            Ha ha sounds a bit impossible

              stuff like brakes (within reason) should be allowed as a safety item i think, especially if the aim is to have the car registered.

              for instance,

              drum to (stock) disc conversion i think should be allowed
              drum to brembos is going a little far

                Agreed, even with the hookups you have i just cant see how its possible to complete within budget.

                Something like $2000 maximum & MPH minimum of 100 would be much more achivable.

                Top 3 cars could then be judged as to who has genuinely spent the least (reciepts, build history / pics etc).

                So basically the aim would still be to spend under 2k but now with a MPH target & realistic budget.

                my 2c anyways.

                  Buying a car already capable of 13s for fuck all because some dumb ass cant change a turbo and gearbox isn't going to be as interesting as building something up. If its near stock that is fine. If its already got a FMIC and exhaust etc and you just need to find a tranny and turbo cheap enough it just becomes an exercise in finding parts cheap enough rather than engineering. But I'm not to say you should't do it. This challenge is supposed to include as many people as possible so banning certain stuff is not within the concept.

                  Whether the car is nitrous based or just somehow purchased for under $1300 just needing a repair to hit 13s, can be considered by the PF lynch mob when voting.

                    One could pickup a cheap R32 GTST (insert random jap import boostcrusing shitbox here) for like 2+k then strip bits off it back down to $1300 value.
                    And then it will be a $1300 car, so it meets the criteria, surely?

                    Or is the challenge actually about finding illogical ways to do 13s for 1300?


                    My plan (and its something I was planning long before I saw this thread, so I've already done the parts collecting) is:
                    1. $300 Volvo 760T. Sold manual conversion bits for $300. Therefore B23ET & ECU & 15" alloys owe me $0.
                    2. $200 Early Volvo 245, with manual box + 4.11 diff gears.
                    3. $200 RB25 BB turbo.
                    4. $100 Ebay IC.
                    5. $200 for DIY 3" exhaust.

                    Surely this is the kind of thing the challenge is hoping to acheive?

                      Rules Draft 3

                      - Proposed Budget $1300 including vehicle cost
                      - Closest cost to $1300 wins if all over budget
                      - If more than one car is under $1300 the quickest wins
                      - Pre-purchased vehicles and parts must have an agreed reasonable value attached with no objection from other players
                      - Freebie vehicles / parts must have an agreed reasonable value attached with no objection from other players
                      - Cars must be registerable
                      - N20 allowed but not judged against other cars (the more cars built the better)
                      - RWC items additional to budget
                      - Labour, welding / grinding consumbales cost additional to budget
                      - A complete build log with pictures and prices needs to be kept.
                      - Buying cars with engine conversions already done, or a 13 sec car just needing a few small repairs from BC for fishtank and fathers mag light etc is frowned upon but not banned. This is an engineering challenge not a mad ebaying skillz competition.

                        What about tyres? Are we allowing borrowed drag radials/slicks/semi slicks or sticking to true street tyres?

                        Gutted interiors OK? Technically they stop it being registerable..

                              2 categories? Nos and no nos? It seems easy to get a cheap vn and slap a cheap nos system to get 13's. Plus nos cost a bit to fill.
