I tell what Racechik--why dont you just come and watch us build one and you can just take your notes from that!!! would be a heck of alot easier then trying to explain it---there is so much involved in building a race car as I have found out--I have built a crusier and now am building a Hobby Stock-- I think that its sounds easier to build then it really is.

Hi - Steve Smith Publications has a great book titled how to build a street stock race car. I have found alot of valuable information in it!

Check out Sleepy Gomez's IMCA Street Stock build up in Circle Track magazine. Very detailed process.

Good Luck!
I've been building speedway cars here in Australia for about 18 yrs and no two cars were ever built in the same order of construction....there are always too many variables: parts missing and/or broken, bits that some drivers prefer that others loathe, parts to be used on a new car that are still seeing duty on the old car, and the everpresent specification and safety advances to keep track of.....but basically it's just shell it out, bar it out, paint it up and race it. (VERY basically lol)

Must be too early. Tried the link and it does not work.not sure what I typed wrong. It takes a little longer, but if you go to and go to the link for area 51 it will get you to it.
