Video: How to Build a Basic Dirt Racer
Project Golf shows step by step how to prepare a low budget, 2000 model car from a $150 insurance Salvage Auction purchase in just a couple of weeks. With over 39 years experience racing VW Golfs and multiple state dirt titles in front wheel drive hatchbacks, I show you many of my setup secrets.

. . . part two?


Redliner 12-05-2015 04:02 PM

I'm uploading this series as I build, but part 2 should be up next week. We've had a big development that will make a lot more work but an even better car.

Can't wait, always willing to learn a different way of doing something, especially if it's simpler

Thank You!
That firewall is a great idea from a manufacturing perspective.

:beer:good coverage of the evolution of a road to track car.
I can tell it has been a while since I built a "Car" because I'm looking at your tube structure and thinking you are using 1/2 the size of tube I would use. . . on a truck:laughing1:

It is amazing that you are able to pickup complete cars for so little $$$!!
I'd guess that you would be out about ~$15,000USD for your purchases thus far.

No buddy - we've only spent about US$650 all up!

I was waiting for the cone to fly in the thick dust, looked to be the real challenge in several shots.

That looks like a hell of a lot of fun!
