Buy Fast or Build Fast---How Do You Decide?



  • True enough. When it comes down to it, I guess there's no substitute for personal preference.

    There are several factors in play here.

    What is the car being used for? Racing? Street driving/cruising? Showing? etc.

    There are several schools of thought in the racing world on build v. buy.

    Pros and cons to both.

    Build: Pros- you know the car is solid, it's custom for you, you may already own it.
    Cons- Usually costs more, more time involved, more shakedown time

    Buy: Pros- Cheaper, quicker Cons- Sometimes fall apart w/o notice, less personal interest, not custom to your desires.
