I’m surprised their ocds allowed them to refit crusty suspension bits with nice shiny new bushes.

I realise it’s supposed to be a quick budget build, but still, while it’s off....

IIRC the original premise was to compare it, (pricewise at least), to a decent multi-display force feedback virtual racing setup. And then do actual, not virtual racing.

You could buy a mini cooper cup car for roughly the same.
