One last post on topic...to run nitro sedan to race ONE day is $50 minimum (entry, transponder fee, one set of tires). That is $200 for the month, plus two gallons of fuel (practice) - $50, a glow plug - $7, and odds and ends.

That is roughly $300 a month to race a car. Trying to explain a $3600 "hobby" to a wife or father is hard.

And just keep up add another $400 for the current crop of car and $300 for an engine - once a year.

$4400 starts to sound like a habit rather than a hobby.

I can race me motorcycle for that much. Or take up Kart Racing.
