Re: Drag Racing The Real Cost
I can't see how you guy's down under can afford to drag race.If it cost me that much here in Kentuck I'd have never gotten started.
The initial cost to get my car going was $8,500. This got those other than myself started on their part of the project. The paint and body man, frame builder, machinest. All of these fella's were friend's or friend's of friend's, so you can imagine that I recieved a large discount.Even with that the cost was higher than I had first thought.
My first engine was $12,836. That was a big pill to swallow, but it did last me four season's so I have no room to complain. If it weren't for my sponsor's, friend's, and family my car would have never been finished.
When in doubt :DON'T
