    Someone ask Jesus to setup a sub section under street cars for build threads and a sticky thread for parts hunters like "anyone know where I can find a T25 turbo for $150?!"

    Comment


      then we should put a list of cars that are not allowed to enter? is the point of this 13sec for 1300? or the most not so doable car doing 13sec for 1300? im trying to create as many objective viewing points so every one has an understanding. why is it not ok to buy say like an r32 for under 1k but its ok to buy an exa? is it because the r32 has better potential to do 13s for 1300? at the end of the day if your in budget and you have proof who can argue? yes i agree it would be more interesting if you can get a vn or el doing it but then does it become an engineering exercise or abit of fun? dont take it the wrong way, im just trying to cut down as many possible hurdles that there may be.

        How about we propose our project cars and put them to an eligibility vote.

            I dont have a problem with r32 theory but selling bits off any car to drop the cost isnt on IMO. I could get ten cars for 100 each and wreck them out to have $5000 to spend

              Already have a project going with a mate that should fit into this challenge.

              auto EA Ford with a switzer bolted to the side of it.

              How much is a EA going to be valued at in this challenge?

                i totally agree, no wrecking of cars should be allowed, only modifications to reach the target time with in budget of $1300. What im trying to get at is, with out making it too complicated yes we want to have some fun, but whats the difference between having everything already there that you just need to fit to buying a car with the potential for next to nothing requiring some coin to be spent on it to do 13secs?

                  QFT, anyone would think the prize was 30 billion dollars the way everyone is nitpicking every single rule

                  The less rules the better

                  1. $1300 max (if you go over and want to enter, it's a 0.1 second penalty for every extra $100 spent)
                  2. No NAAAWS
                  3. RWC/REGO/Safety shit not included
                  4. No selling off bits to increase your spending money
                  5. Stuff you already have has to be valued

                  /end rules

                    I reckon, say, $200-$300 for any old shitter is a fair valuation

                        i dont have an issue with the r32 for 1k. The way i see it is if you can get a 32 for 1k you are going to need more than 300 to get it running. Or its a track only option that wont be allowed. Agree with no selling parts to recoupe cash.

                        Just keep it simple

                        no more that 1300 spent in total!
                        Excluding rwc
                        no nos


                        the whole 32 argument is not relivent imo as if you can find a 32 for 1k and only need 300 to get it fixed you deserve to be in the contest as that is great bargain hunting

                            this sounds good, as long as your build log is proofed run what ya brung, less rules is better too. otherwise too complicated etc etc

                              A stock gtst would struggle to run a 14 anyway or are we getting a modded one for a thousand bucks?
