After hanging out with my friend Patrick for a while, I've realized he is living MY dream. I've always wanted to put my talents to the test on the race track. So, now I'm at a point in my life that I need to decide if it's in my future. So tell me, what would it take (money wise) for me to build a c3/c4/c5 track car that would allow me to spank some ass at the track? :huh:

If you plan on using the car for the track only, find an old used SCCA racer. If you want to use it one the street too, again look for a car that already has most of what you'll need.

Let someone else pay to build the car.

Dude, From what I've heard about you last weekend, Don't worry about a race car untill you take driving lessons first :nuts:

I don't know if you have had any track time, but I would suggest you run your C5 at a few track days or hit some auto cross solo events, not as exciting as the track with other car but will Gage your driving with other drivers. I am planing out going back to Spring Mountain for a 3 day course and burn up there tires...Of course even if you buy another Vette and find you don't like it theres nothing bad about having two vettes...:laughing:

You can find some really cheap salvage titled cars. Don't look at crashed ones, but theft recovered or maybe a flood car. Your going to gut it any way. The car isn't really the big part. It's the tires, brakes and everything eles that wears. I wouldn't go older than a C5.
