Planning your build

Did any of you keep changing your mind when planning your car build?

The more I read the more excited I get with all of the options.

That's why it's important to research before you build too much.

Nobody wants to pay for parts twice cuz a certain part won't work with your setup lol

In all of the builds I have done, I always went a little farther with them than I intended too. So I plan for that.

I've always built cars in stages with an overall goal. On my Z28, I wanted a fast car (130 trap speed on street tires) that could do everything well and have no issues being driven across the country reliably while still maintaining good street manners.

So, I started with basic engine bolt ons, then suspension/brakes, then more engine stuff, then reliability stuff, then more engine stuff and currently, more reliability stuff.

Decide what you want and want you may want in the future and plan ahead. As you mentioned, no point in buying parts several times, do it right the first time.

Yup that's pretty much me.

Luckily the little bolt ons i have done will help me no matter which route I choose
