Car(s): Mk1 Saxo VTS "Track Car"
iTrader Score: 11 (100%)
Default Alanapone's Red VTS. Caged, stripped, track toy.

Right, I've been back from TRAX a few hours now and had a good think and ponder over all the awesomeness I saw.

I've decided that I've seen far too many track car builds on here that never come to fruition. The main reason behind this, from what I've seen, is people get bogged down with building a top spec car. I think this is great and I'm in NO WAY trying to take from anyone that wants to do this as it's your personal decision BUT, that fact that many never see the track or never get completed cannot be ignored.

To this end, i've decided I want to see if rather than spending three times as much on just an engine, I can buy, build AND get on track in an okay spec car for the measly sum of ONE THOUSAND POUNDS!

The target budget has only really been set by Rorz_VTS as he has built a lovely looking daily for the same budget. After having a chat with him about his build and some of the interest it has received, I thought it MAY be possible to get a car up to a decent track spec for similar money.

First off. I do have a VTR at the moment but as the shell is in need of some tlc, I may not use this for this project. I may, however, use some of the mods I've fitted to it to save time BUT I will add the prices I paid for the parts to the total.

Ideally, The car will be a VTS with all the most important bits sorted first, then some lightening and maybe some added safety in the form of buckets and a cage.

I'll start looking into what spec I can get for the money while you lot throw some abuse or hopefully some good ideas my way.

Fingers crossed, I also want this project to be completed by December 4th. this gives me exactly 3 months

So, let rip people... ideas for spec, please
