    I thought so, put banger car racing into google and the first thing that comes up is the site youv just listed. Infact google banger racing and pretty much everything you need is there.

    shame really, if i had the money id have it!

    to banger race it you will need to:

    Strip all windows out
    Rwmove all interior trims I.E Dash, door cards, pillar trims, roof lining, carpet and all seats except drivers(obviously).
    A roll cage will need to be put in, normally made of 4" box section welded into an "H" shape and run behind the driver in between the "b" pillars.
    A fire extinguisher must be present in the vehicle and accesible from the driving psition.
    4 point harnesses must be used.
    Fuel tank must be removed from outside ofthe car and new fuel lines and a certin spec fuel tank be mounted to the roll cage.

    Bumpers and last 24inches(ithink) of the exhaust must be removed no hub caps either.

    Headlights, indicators rear lights wipers all removed.

    Alternator must be dsconnected.
    Battery must be inside ar aswell.
    A fuel cut off switch and engine cut of switch must be present.

    And a good handfull of radiators, track rod ends, and spare wheels are a neccessity as your bound to go through a good few.

    HTH this is all off the top of my head im sure there is plenty more

    thats a shame, if I had the £ I'd have her Have you tried popping her on ebay? I'm sure one as nice as that will sell, it'd be a shame to loose her. If you do strip her could you drop me a PM though? Electric aerial is one thing I'm interested in for sure, maybe a couple of other bits and bobs.

    I also get annoyed and find it irritating when people don't even bother to do their own research first, especially when it's often so quick and easy...

    But I'm all for asking questions if people get stuck! I know I've had to ask a fair few in my time!
