Me and a bud are building a racecar for next season with the supervision of my dad. He named off some things that we'll need. I was wondering if anyone knows where any of these parts are or if you have any to sell. We're looking for clutch and pressure plate, 3 speed tranny, Bellhousing, 3.73 - 10 Bolt gear and spool, Fuel Cell, 6" rods, Pistons, Vortec heads, Vortec Intake, and racing wheels. I know I can find some stuff around here where I live, but the more important things are what Im looking for like the rods, tranny, heads and intake. Email me at curtis_10@yahoo.com if you have any suggestions on where to get a good price or have any to sell.

Thanks,
Tacky

Have you considered buying someone's race car? It is a lot easier to purchase an established car and equipment then to start fresh. You will have the chance to rebuild everything, make improvements, and "learn" your car before the start of next season.

No, I'm not buying someone elses car. Usually people around here dont sell the car unless its junk. My dad knows the right way to build a car considering he's built about 10 over the years. We already have all the stuff we need except the motor tranny area. I don't have the money to buy a car because my uncle races and he's gave us a BUNCH of stuff so I'm gettin out cheap.

I understand. You will have to be specific when doing a search for parts. There are literally hundreds of combinations and only you will know what will fit into your car. The list you provided is too generic.

I'm the friend who is building on this car also, its a "combined effort". lol
anyways, we have some of those parts taken care of now. the parts we still DO need include: a 8.5" 10 bolt spool, and we are still in dire need of a fuel cell and about 6-15x10 (4.75 GM bolt pattern) RACING WHEELS (used ones in good shape preferrably).
