Well for the ride, I will use my Xray, but
I would replace every thing metal: Screws, Bulkheads, Swingshafts, outdrives, turnbuckles with Liquid Metal parts which in all should be lighter than the stock setup but alot stronger.

I could possibly build it for less than that but I doubt it.
Neu 2200 series motor $500 +/-
Phoenix HV-110 $230
Custom CF drag chassis $150
Matched 20cell Pack $140 +/-
Custom machined aluminum parts $200 +/-
But that brings my total up to $1220 USD, I'm not sure what that is in ₤ but it's only 863 EUR.

Here is how I would budget yourself.

Go to your local track and see what cars are popular. Also find out what classes people run. Brushless would probly be the best way to go. If they run lipo I would run lipo as well. You should be able to pick up a great car, esc, and radio, and servo for around $800 u.s. Then for a charger I would pick up the hyperion 5 amp charger & a pair of orion lipos $350 u.s. Now, this should be a solid setup for getting started. Now, if your local track doesn't allow lipos then i'm sure you can pick up a set of packs, w/ a battery management system for $400 or so, lipos are the way to go though. Now, after you convert that you should still have a good $800 u.s. left or so. This means that you will be left with a great budget for spare parts. If you want to run a second class, perhaps pan car then pick up the hyperion 10 amp charger w/ two balancers( you will be able to charge two packs at once w/ this) and a 3rd battery. If you are looking to just get started in racing I would stick with one class though and look to save that extra money for spare parts, tools, tires, ect.
