What kind of racing are you looking to do? Circuit? Autocross? Drift? Drag? It makes a big difference. Whether you need it to take on corners or not makes a big difference.

Re: Building a racecar help!!!!!

If you're just doing straight line racing and you want to do something ridiculous you can't really go wrong with a small pickup truck/ big engine combo. I'm not just talking about a Chevy S10 with a 350 under the hood, that's actually more common than you may think. I'm thinking an old Toyota Tacoma (like back when they were really small and low to the ground) or even more ridiculous one of those old Datsun pickups. Of course with these, the engine will have to be swapped.
If you want to be able to take corners, you could try one of those hideous abominations from AMC like a pacer or a gremlin. If you could make one of those perform well on a track, definitely get some attention. You could also do a RWD conversion on an old (like early '80s) Toyota corrolla and put something big and powerful under the hood, that would be pretty ridiculous too.
Whichever way you choose to go, you're going to wind up with a big expensive project requiring a lot of customization so be ready for that... you've been warned.

Re: Building a racecar help!!!!!

I would think you need a harness for that racecar.... i bught mine at https://oemseatbelts.com, check their harness website, they have 5 and 6 points but the 4 points SFI are cheaper. The round buckle type are cool, but more expensive too.

Every sanctioning body has its own rules concerning seatbelts and harnesses. My personal feelings are that harnesses with two belts coming over the top of the seat should NEVER be used in vehicles that don't have approved roll-cages. There are, I suppose, cases where they can be used in vehicles with only roll-bars, but I don't recommend it. The reason for this is that in a roll-over, the over-the-shoulder belts prevent the driver or passenger from being able to lean toward the center of the vehicle. Three-point belts are, without a doubt, the safest systems for use on non-caged vehicles.
