Oh no not another mini stock to listen to!! lol. Are you going to run both tracks? It seems like Bargerton sure winds them things up. I keep thinking there gonna blow any second! Good luck selling your car. Can't seem to sell mine!

How To Figure Out The Price of a Stock Car 101:

Step 1: Add up all you've spent on the car.

Step 2: Multiply that number by 70%

Step 3: Divide that number in half.

Step 4: Cross your fingers and hope somebody will give you 80% of that.

Step 5: Realize racecars are very poor investments.

Good luck, I started a new car and am having zero luck selling the old one. Usually, people looking to get into racing just don't understand how much stock cars cost.

Ball park thats all I am saying I would just like to get an idea where to start. By the way I went to Bargerton with a 5.88 and turned 6200 rpms. I would say thats the gear for a super or mod. maybe a little more for street.

I want $800 for it. Its a good first car, but it needs a litle work. And, yes, its a street stock.
