    If not, real flames will suffice.

Apart from putting an anchor off the titanic in my car I really couldnt be more disadvantaged !!! You'll find the amount of mk1 Golfs with this engine that can actually run in the 13s on any budget is a handful , its easier to do an engine swap with a 1.8t , but this is way outta my budget . So Im curious to find out if the value of the car can still be $0 or will I have to loose some costings there .
      You picked the wrong project then.
      Harden the fuck up and do it rather than bitching about the rules.

      brb... collecting a torana, rb30, gt42r that i'll have for free for next years challenge... retireds....

          People have to relax a bit. This isnt supposed to be so serious.

          My 2 bro's and i have nearly finished our car (what a week hahaha) and it has been fucking awesome. We are never allowed to be this dodgey normally so its a good change to smash something together just for shits and giggles. Seeing as we have some spare time (12 weeks lol) we might start a second one.

          Just let each person do their own thing. If an injustice is seen, let it be dealt with when it happens.

          Now stop being sooks and get working.

            I've got a question - does the end product have to be $1300, or the total of all experimentation?

            ALLMTR's thread made me think of this with the talk of whether he swaps the diff out or not... if he gets it going with teh stock diff, then he has spent $0. If he decides to swap for a 9 inch that he picked up for $150, then the cost is $150. If if then decides that the stock diff was lighter and had a better ratio and wants to go back, does it go back to 0?

            likewise if someone goes through 4 ebay turbos trying to find one that works properly - do you count the value of all 4, or just the one that you end up using?

            you can always hear them when they break and they stop the engine immediately so you can't do any more damage.

              personally, I'd say yes. I'd only add what went into the final build.
              Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

                i think the price should be based on the final finished product

                  Fuck the rules.

                  Build something cheap, go skid it, have fun. If you go over a smidge who cares.

                  This isnt the fucking FIA, its PF. If you start bringing in too many rules its going to make it too hard for the guys who dont have access to some of the fancy gear and shops that a lot of guys do. That and a bunch of people are going to get all e-cunthurt because something doesnt fit the "rules" but is still fast, or worse still faster than something they built.

                  The prize is a wooden dick for fucks sake. A WOODEN DICK. Have some perspective.

                  Get out there and spin some spanners rather than worrying about a bible full of what not to do.

                    Settle petal, there's hardly any rules there. Most of them are safety and some vague ones about costing stuff.

So for general costs it'll be $100 per litre. Free car bodies/chassis will be on the formula 2000 - factory weight of the complete car = cost. So for example if you have a car that weighs say 1450 kilograms from the factory then it has cost you Aus$550 from your budget. Paint and damage/rust repairs are cost-free.

                        well thats just fucked, that means the handi cost $1470 and my engine was $260 so i have blown my budget without spending a cent

                        fuck i feel like i got :wayned:

                          for your handy to be valued at $1470 it would have to weigh like 14000kg

                          eitherway were moding that rule to be fair market value based rather than weight based
