Have you attempted to build your own car from scratch? Something real fast and light with ultimate power and handling. Something just built for speed and handling, no extras. A vehicle of this size would it be best to use a car or large motorbike engine? Because a full size car transmission seems too big for something this size. What other problems would one encounter building something like this?

    Also what are the advantages and disadvantages of mid mount, front or rear mount engines? For a pure speed machine built for mountain driving going up and down hills and cornering would mid mount be the best choice?

      Its all about weight distribution.
      Mid engine is the easiest layout to get 50/50 when its just about building a fast car.

        You will need to learn how vehicle dynamics works, as well as material sciene, let's not forget how to fricking weld the whole thing together. If anything the easiest thing would be to make some sort of Pre-war kinda car, as it's just two beams as a chassis with solid axles

        Henry Ford didn't invent the first automobile; he just streamlined its assembly using an assembly line. He was also such a cheapskate he demanded from parts suppliers what size and shape the wood crates they shipped him parts in so he could break down the crate and use it as a part in the truck. He also priced the truck accordingly to ensure employees could buy it, thus ensuring most of his employees were basically a guaranteed sale.

        I've been wanting a type65 for a decade now. I wish I didn't have to buy the full $40k kit all at once. If I could just buy it one piece at a time I'd probably get drunk and impulse purchase it and build a car as I had the money.

            To highlight the unrefined and parallel contradiction floating around in some mens minds.

            Henry Ford had a business model and wanted to pay employees a good salary, good enough to buy his brand new luxury product known as the mass-produced automobile.

            Me, almost 100 years after Henry's assembly line lamenting I don't have $40,000 for a rolling chasses replica of a hot-rodders car from 60 years ago.

            How are these parallel contradictions? Shelby had nothing to do with Henry Ford's model A or T. The Type 65 is based on a car that came over 50 years after Henry's start. Are you making some sort of "everyone should be able to afford anything at any time" argument?

            You have what I call Type A slave morality mindset. Deep down you hate Henry Ford for his success yet at the same time your own brittleness requires men like you to have an overarching authoritarian to make the cold, hard and brutal decisions in order to create opportunity and economic activity so you can habe the chance of being a part of it all. It's only normal, but don't hang shit on Ford because he's a better man.

            Dude, 40,000 for a TOY is a LOT of scratch, on top of having the space to build it. It is not at all the same as being a UAW employee that drives an F150. Where is anyone shitting on Ford? Dude was the good kind of ruthless business man, paid his employees well specifically to poach them from other employers.

            DA hates you so much, mostly because you're moronic as shown by the post I'm replying to. Go ahead and price out a kit. The "base kit" that "starts at" whatever isn't enough to even get a rolling chassis.

            it's not 40k all at once, and if you're paying another 23k for an 8.8 and wheel hubs, no one here except perhaps that econoline gay can help you

    Look into a Haynes Roadster or Locost. Full tube spaceframe built around a donor car's drivetrain, anything front-engined, rear-wheel drive can be adapted to fit.
    A Caterham is a more "just put it together" option for a Lotus Seven clone.

    Is there a US state in which I may build my own car from scratch and then legally register it for public streets?

      There are several states, but the rules around it are autistically complicated and confusing at best even to attorneys. Your best bet is finding some loophole of using a "donor car" VIN and just calling it highly modified or something stupid.

    My longterm plan (20-25 years) is to build a W196-inspired track car. Perhaps a little bigger, perhaps with fiberglass or carbon chassis. Perhaps with a modern lightweight turbo 4 or 6 cylinder, or even with a self-built W196-inspired inline-eight.
    i think the actual engineering or building one can do. these are question of time somebody got. the bigger problems are money for buying everything you need and the actual place for assembly, welding, milling, whatnot, and testing/test drives.

          Based, sounds awesome. Definitely post progression pics as it comes along.

          is one of them caterham clones something you can buy the frame and axels and have it shipped out to you or do you have to custom weld the whole thing off a diagram

          Iirc, you can get the pre-welded frames shipped over, but they're expensive. Most, if not all Locosts you see in the US are home welded. Plenty of great diagrams and info out there on building the frame. It's really not hard if you can weld and are careful about building jigs and measuring. I got mine off a guy already mostly built, but I had to pull it back apart to fix some shitty parts of the frame. Just gotta be wary if you're buying someone else's build.

          pretty amazing what caterhams cost in the US. For being build for the last 40 years, the simplicity of them, you'd think a kit would cost under $20k, just add engine sorta thing. How those track toys cost so much blows my mind.
