The sr20 is a great platform for beginners. Good economy and power/weight are within a couple hours reach for the experienced and novice alike.
It was a great time, and the opportunity has arose for me to try something a little bigger this time around. Will update with a new thread as soon as I get it driving (I don't really do build threads, more like daily driving threads). There is alot of fabrication in my next vehicle; this is not good for beginners, so don't get any ideas! I am calling favors with three different fabricators I have met over the years to make this come together, as I do not personally own a welder (I can weld just fine, in case you have one and need something done, I would love to. But the equipment is too expensive, and I am still on a college student budget).
