I think the best way for you to go is go to the track you want to race out and talk to the guys you will race against and buy the best car there. You will spend a lot more on building one than if you buy one ready to go.If you want a comp. car that would be the way to go.

i would buy a roller even one of those street stocks would more than likely work if you can weld get one and cut the cage out of it put it in your monte then copy the rest of the bars or design your own. our chassis we build are designed so that anybody can fix one if it gets bent other than the cage all the bars are straight so all you have to do is cut it out and put another one in. basily if i were you i would go out and find a roller with a good cage and safty stuff and start from there. as for a motor thats the good thing with imca it doesn't take a winston cup builder and budget to build one just get a junk yard motor have it gone thru and put a good cam and flat tops in it another thing if you can find one of the big rochester carbs it helps out alot

dode the big carbs are the 2g 500 cfm 2brls . mostly used on school buses or you can also get them from kplugnut on here or speedway or jet carbs it will cost you about 250 for a new one but it's well worth it belive me
