    Just buy the car/engine/noskit/whatever parts and claim fair market value on the bits you use. After all, we don't want the rules stopping the fun.

I personally could not give a fuck for implementing rules and that is only my personal opinion.
    Not a negative value. Maybe a zero value though as it pertains to the project.

    a possible solution to this?

    a non-competing and non-assisting mate buys the $1000 shitbox parts car. You then buy the $200 donk out of said shitbox. You also agree to make no claim as to how your mate disposes of the rest of the shitbox or profit from any sales. This avoids the problem of trying to reduce your parts spend to get under the limit.

    It's a big ask for your mate, but if they see the dollars come back in when parting out the car, it's a fairly minor financial risk. It's a bit borderline too - e.g. a smart-arse legal move to get around a rule restriction.

    It's all moot anyway, the parts have fallen through.

    What the deal was is that I had a diff lined up. I wanted the gears and centre, but didn't need/want the axles and housing and planned to move them on immediately. therefore the bits I actually wanted would have only cost me x amount of dollars. But dickhead strung me along for a couple weeks then informs me he just sold the diff to his mate.

    With more than a few cars not too far away from being finished the proposal has been bandied about that 13s For $1300 be carried forward to the end of June.

    I'd like to see this happen as well. Lets see a show of hands... err... words.

    I'd also like to introduce the notion that unless a person is running a car in the comp they should stfu in regards to any of the rules (or lack thereof)
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    Cool, I suggest you buy a running car though given your track record.
