    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    It isn't the big things, its the small things: runs and runs of wire, cases of wood glue, forests of mdf....it costs about $25 to build a box. In extreme, probably alot more. Perhaps triple. Then you build 40--50 boxes to test. Then the time, then the cost of shows. I know because I am budgeting it. I am not telling you not to, just that it is expensive. Resale value on equipment is about 25%-50%. 0% if you fvck it up in the process (and you will)

    I completely understand that. Ive got the resources for the glue and boxes and the equipment for that. I got that part covered. Its the rest that will slow us down a lil.

    I know there is alot more involved that what I have stated in some of my previous posts. And I know it will take us a while to get going. But were gonna do this.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    I have spent several hours just budgeting costs of product, materials, shows, gas, hotel/motel, broken equipment....and yet to have made a purchase.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    I recommend you start in the smaller classes (Super Street in DB drag) and then when you can get more money for better equipment you rebuild...eventually if you atleast make a small name for yourself company's will start to notice you and then the sponsorships come...youve gotta spend that intial money first.

    Alot of the big names in DBDrag started small, you should as well.

    Just a final FYI....doing 150's out of a truck is not an easy task.

    What all is involved in super street? Maybe I can convince my friends to go with something smaller.

    Re: What all do I need to compete in the World Finals

    I would definately start out with street or super street. Once you guys have a setup that pumps out solid numbers then you can move on. Extreme is really crazy, I couldn't even imagine starting in that class. Inch thick plexi for the windows is like 600 a sheet, batteries, boxes....not to mention you would have to trailor it to shows. Having a car that you can drive to shows would make it a lot easier too.
