Street Racing - Choosing The Right Car To Race

Aug 2, 2008
The underground sport of street racing is becoming remarkably massive in popularity. Unfortunately, when it comes down to it, the expenses required to get started with street racing can also be quite massive themselves. Newbies to the sport can help alleviate some of the financial pain by choosing the right car to race in the first place. Here are a few pointers.

Start With The Right Car.

It's no surprise that many street racers get started by modding the daily driver they already own. This is just fine. In fact, unless you have the big bucks to spend on a ride that's already been tuned and tweaked with the finest performance equipment, it is highly recommended to start with a solid car that hasn't previously been raced. Street racing does tend to seriously stress the mechanical components of a vehicle. Get into the hobby with a car that hasn't already been used and abused.

Choose A Car That Can Be Modded.

Chances are, you probably already have the make and model of your ideal street racer in mind. While the rapidly growing parts and performance industry makes high performance add-ons and race-ready parts for the engines, suspensions, bodies, and other components of a huge variety of vehicles, it's worth realizing that some cars will have many more aftermarket options available than others. The more common the particular car is in the world of street racing, the easier it will be to score the best racing parts at the lowest prices... it's simply a textbook case of supply and demand.

Be Creative In The Search For The Perfect Street Racer.

The best buys, especially when it comes to cars ready for racing modifications, rarely come from the dealership lot. Instead, sources such as eBay and craigslist often boast hundreds of tuner-ready cars of the exact make and model you desire available to purchase from individuals at or below wholesale prices. Also, it's important to be aware that street racing requires mods to cars that make traditional financing options less than appealing. So what's the best way to buy a street racer? The answer is saved up cash, of course!

Street racing is an extremely exhilarating and fast paced sport. It helps to have the right performance equipment to begin with. And remember, do be safe and responsible - have fun with your street racing car by only participating in legal track events. This will help ensure that you can continue to enjoy the sport without having to deal with law enforcement.
