4 banger class isn't that expensive to get into.



but if you're doing that, you might as well go street stock for a little bit more. A turn key race car is usually really good value, that is, if you know what to look for and how to inspect one.

I just don't know where to even start. Get a car and go qualify at a track? I'd like to start kinda small to get my feet wet, then make it to ARCA, then go from there. It's one of those things that you just know you're good at for me, but doubt anything will ever come of it.

Oh, you wanna do pavement. I don't know much about that.

I'm a dirt track spectator. I would race, but I ain't paying for a racecar

Start with a shifter cart and see if you're any good at it first.........

I got vertigo one time because my sinus infection put pressure on my ear.
I have asthmatic like reaction to perfume and air fresheners any scent can cause it and a few environmental.
My recent hospital stay I told them and they said hospital policy banned perfumes, lady social worker came in and I had a reaction. Nurse was not happy.

I would say defiantly less than 1,000 bucks. And a water box is the muffler on a jetski and you can see it under the seat. Not hard at all to replace. Make sure you also check the jackshaft bearings, water jet propeller shouldn't have slop and bearings shouldn't sound like shit.
