I know the 540 class is extremely competitive here and look forward to having a go...with or without success.
I've lost interest in spending vast quantities to race modified touring cars and not enjoying it
This is the 16th year I've been racing(continuously, off road then on road) and frankly it's getting tired, the whole idea of going "low budget" was to try something different to my previous "cheque book" racing.
This guy asked for advice and he got it. I'd rather he spent less than what he's suggested but it's his decision in the end. I've seen people blow big money on cars, get nothing out of it then complain.
The fact he was racing 12 years ago suggests to me that he was also used to some pretty substandard kits being around, maybe he expects the same but the times have changed and what you can buy now will often be fast, out of the box.
It wasn't like that in the old days, you had to upgrade cars when they were new
I think thats everything....
I've given him Kelvin's details earlier this week.
