I have a tube bender to make my own cage. Pinto was $250, motor and trans were free, where does the other $3500 come from?
Are you required to have $1000 seat??
$500-800 in tires
$3-400 in brake pads
roll bar padding
This all really depends on how good you are at sourcing items for less than retail and your expectations of the car. You can get used seats for about half of new. You can get legal belts for as low as $60 new. You don't have to run sticky tires. In fact, they had a challenge to run a certain all-season radial. You don't have to buy expensive pads. You can build cheap if you just want to go play. The expensive part comes when you are trying to run the car hard the entire event. Then you do need to upgrade the equipment to make it last.
