It looks like the 1600lb 3800 powered car I linked to is on the porky side for these cars. If I were to go with a bike engine they get down to under 1000 lbs which is pretty sick.
It seems like though after doing more research that there is no budget kit for these. All the kit cars are 30K+ and anyone spending less than that are building their entire chassis from scratch and designing their own suspension (pretty intense stuff there!)
So far I havent found an engine solution either that just bolts right in. I was thinking a bike engine with a sequential tranny and 1000lbs with a 225-255 super sticky tire would break my neck around the corners. Sounds fun!
