LMAO that you had to look me up on facebook. Ed, you're a ****ing joke. But you're right, Racetech wasn't even on my radar last year. I was going to have Richie Crampton build me a copy of the Torrance undercover, but He got insanely busy building Salinas TA cars.
By my guestimation you'll be throwing another $17k at it to get it to the rolling state with no paint. Agree?
of course I'm right and no kid you're a fucing joke that ain't raced S/C and my son looked you up last year
Find me in the pits at the nationals this year and I can guarantee I'll make a joke out of you.
Kid, don't let your mouth write a check your ass can't cash! I'll be there and we'll be racing, I'm easy to find!
Can't wait. See you soon buddy
we ain't buddies and what part of the TRUTH and the FACTS don't you like?
Your stage 1 racetech is no comparison to the car in question now nor when it's race ready!
That said, I wouldn't own a racetech, they have a long history of chassis failures, specifically broken uprights which means the engineering of their chassis is flawed.
It seems pretty obvious to me that the guy probably has $100k+ in the car but he threw a high number on it because he's not REALLY wanting to sell it but will let it go if someone who is heavy on cash but light on patience is willing to step up.

Billy, I haven't seen the car nor know how it's equipped but based on this description..."new top-shelf blower car" he's got a whole lot more than $100k in the car.
No doubt.... the people who think the asking price is WAY off would probably be surprised at what it costs after all the bills are added up. His asking price is probably a bit optimistic but it seems pretty obvious from the tone of the add that it's not a fire sale but more for someone with deep pockets who doesn't want to wait. There is an ass for every seat.

exactly, it's very easy to get to $110K from any of the builders I previously mentioned for a new turnkey non carbon bodied dragster with all top shelf components aka Mark Williams, Racepak, Weld Deltas, etc. and a 582/598 short deck, wet sump bracket engine. A top shelf T/D car with a blower engine will easily add $20K to that number minimum.
Keyboard tough guys are out today, spreading more worthless dribble!

An important point that many fail to grasp - cost really doesn't impact prices. Supply and demand impact prices. People are charging high prices because supplies are short, and there is lots of demand for scarce goods.
This is about as comparable as it gets!!!
Guess the motor in the one this thread is about is worth 85k!
Not a bad deal there at all in todays wild market, can’t argue that
A lot of money in the economy in the last 6-12 months. It’ll adjust just like it did 12 years ago. People will be really quiet about what they are proud about now.
The ones that growl and bytch over what someone prices items for are the exact ones that ain't buying shyt and just want to poor mouth.

The whole point of this thread is that the 125-140K seemed high. If you think it is a good buy then feel free to jump on it. I do know some houses and cars etc are asking and some are getting way more than they are worth.
I will say it again the bottom is going to fall out and you want to buy when it is low and sell when prices are up.
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.
Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

"it's just paint" as I was once told. Strip that away from this car and it's a run of the mill, nothing special dragster and the way I read this classified, the $55k is the roller price.
