    As topic im going to build (have started) an Volvo 244 for trackdays on an budget, goal is 180-200bhp it will have 4-point rollcage, race seats and harnesses etc, and try to give it some quite good handling as an stock 240 feels like an boat on the road :)

    more or less just for fun! :)

    tell me if you want me to make an full tread where you can follow my build:)

    Building a trackday car is a lot of fun, good luck !!!!!!
    Here's my trackday car:
    bmw m3 e36 3.0
    It's still a road legal car with papers, and build it up with help of a friend.

    @ William,

    It's a standard engine it's got 280 bhp, no leight weight body parts, so a bit heavy.
