Buy an unknown rotor and box off trademe for 1500.

Wack a carb on it.

Run it on premix.

Do some underpowered skids til it pops.

 Don't need any of that shit, change gear when it hits the limiter, i can fab stuff up easy as, all you need is an angle grinder, hammer, and welder.

started out like this

ripped all that shit out, saved about 30kg out of there, left all the loom in, i really dont know what wiring i need to keep or chuck out so it can all stay there for now. then i chucked the dash back in, need to get some interior screws  so i can attach all the little bits of dash and trim around the place

$free - replacement bumper and guards.

It all essentially boils down to the fact that FCs rule.

Get this going stat Mitch.

 

Mitch knows the cage is shit. Doesn't intend it to hoon the car in anything official. Basically Mitch just wants to look the part, do some skids and do it all for less than the cost of a weekend for two in hamilton.

 

This will be you in a few months. Good lad.
