I know it can be scary but there is more to life than just home theater!!
What else do you have a passion for?
I took a 30+ year old Autodynamics Deserter GS that I found rotting in a field
And I restored it into a SCCA autocrosser,
It weighs approx 1100 lbs & has a 200 HP VW engine, close ratio transmission & 4 wheel disc brakes.
It doesn't have a big top speed, with the 486:1 rear end it tops out about 90 MPH but will do 0-60 MPH in 4 seconds!!
I have smoked Porsche's, Ferrari's, Vipers & Corvettes with my home built mid engine hot rod & won the SCCA regional championships 5 out of 6 years.
I did all the work in my backyard shop,
I also am the crew chief on a VW powered sand dragster,
It's tubro charged (40psi), fuel injected & runs on Alky, it runs 100 yards on sand in 2.9 seconds at 125 MPH!
It's a monster that smokes supercharged V8's (it's a power to weight thing!) but as you can imagine a 650 HP VW engine will eat a lot of parts, I'm just glad I'm not the one paying the bills on this one!
