New and Goals

Hi guys, I think i'm in the right section. I'm from South Bend, Indiana and am considering buying an FD to modify and go >200 mph. I am going to be doing the vast majority of the work myself. I will only outsource the things that I don't have equipment for like balancing. I would like to keep it street legal as I also plan on participating in Tire Rack's One Lap of America. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome, that's quite the goal! Best to start a thread in the 3rd gen section too, lot more traffic there to discuss ideas with.

Do you have any experience at building a car for those speeds?

Yes, and no, which is why I'm here. I do have experience building a car, but have never been >200 mph. I expect it will be a somewhat slow process with many milestones along the way.
