I'm sure more questions will occur to me as this goes on.

Also, any other friendly advice for a noob would be appreciated.

How long 4-weeks or 10-years, depends on budget, time, experience, life and even death.

For someone just starting out I recommend that you start by buying a runner and driving it for a season before, you haul off and build something that isnít what you learn you want.

The approach depends on what you are going to build, Mini buggy or Ultra-4 completely different scope and scale.

I think that the first thing to consider is Budget, then time, then quadrupling the initial budget plus the original and multiplying the time by 4.

When did empirical knowledge get replaced by a theoretical education?
