I added reference to lamboclone in part 2 as well.  Unfortunately, Lamboblounge is no longer around. It was a great resource.

Very well said and its great you took the time to write all of this! Only thing I would add is our forum on part 2 since we have so many new builds and builders here and seems to be more active. But very well said this needs to be a sticky on the top of the thread! Thank you for posting it.

My favorite part of this article.

"If I’m sitting in what is perceived to be a quarter of a million dollar car, why would I want to race someone? What do I need to prove to a high school student? If I don’t respond to the challenge, they will always wonder."

So well said, so true.

Definitely valuable information for someone just coming into this hobby.
If I don't have time to do it right, when will I have time to do it over?
