As a noob, I see a class that should exist. Take a box stock kit and spend $50 retail on any thing other than frp or cf parts and go to work. If you can screw it , click it or press it onto your box kit without altering the original chassis... basic tools. Could be alot of fun and teach the fundamentals with the freedom of a budget and basic rules format. I was just sitting here tonight playing around and building another new car with $200 worth of parts in front of me and thought about this. It seems that this hobby goes from basic open the box and build it and race, to the next class which is holy crap! too much thought and money into a setup to progress one class up.
