How much money would it cost to repair a wrecked/used car and make it a winner?

I can't tell you how many cars I have re-stubbed or rebuilt that have gone on to win alot of races. You have to look at the main cage and chassis under it to make an accurate decision on whether or not to take the time and money to rebuild. If you have the tools or access to them, and the skills or buddies who do, then you're money ahead.

all depends on what kinda chassis you have how bad it's wrecked and how much work you can do your self. i can build a new car for less then alot of guys spend to straighten one but our rules are very simple chassis wise we can't x frames and stuff .like that so all it cost me basicly is the price of a new frame and body usually around 2-300 but other then having a buddy help lift the cage out of the old car and stuff that is physicly impossable for one man to do i do myself and thats big money saver a buddy of mine wrecked his a couple weeks ago pretty simple bent frame cost about 150 for 2 hrs on the frame machine
