    rules sound ok, and have been noted.

    just one thing though.. im not counting rust repairs, windscreen seals etc etc in costs as i consider it a RWC item, and will actually slow me down by making it heavier . eurorogeriacordiaorwhateverhisnameis i dont think should be penalised for replacing the rusty shit bonnet.

    oh, and i think people should have slight freedoms/be rewarded for having some sort of rego

    i only say that because its in the spirit of the original 1st gen rules.

    as morerevsm3 said, rego'd cars will end up the heaviest by a fair margin just to keep streetable. cant strip all the body bracing off a car and expect it to still be roadworthy

    Can I spend 1300 on my pick-up and be eligible?
    Compound turbo with LPG injection should be doable for that money (out here anyways).

    The problem I see with rego is my car would never pass there is just too much rust in it . Most of these cars are for spare parts or scrap , if you can have a registered car that can make this challenge then kudos to you but it shouldnt affect anyone else that enters this challenge

    As for the cars value , I got mine for free cause in its condition thats all its worth . It was a private import as no mk1 Golf petrol cars were brought into the country after 1980 and local production had ceased after VW sold the plant to Nissan in 1976 .

    I have my work cut out for me cause not only is my car European (we all know a Merc is more expensive to service than a Commodore or Camry) , its fwd and its Auto . 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 .
    I wanna do 8s bruv! Without no stinkin' POWERCHIP

    Id rather have a rock in my shoe when hikin' than have a POWERCHIP in my car when racin'

    Scrap value for a small car is about $80 at the moment.

    You picked the wrong project then.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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
