How to get into Prerunning?

As others have said, get involved with a team.
In the late 90's when this site was a black page of streaming red text I posted on here and had someone respond that they needed help at the next race. I showed up and dumped fuel and changed some tires. Within the year I got a ride in the right seat. Next thing I knew a new friend and I built a car and started racing. I started driving in addition to riding right seat.

So, you can do it. It just takes working your ass off and showing someone who has a car that you take it more seriously than the other guys out there helping.

i was expecting this thread to go a completely different direction.
bravo race-dezert

i have no advice that hasn't already been given
used is best
bronco's rule
toyotas are cool if you fit in them
don't buy a buggy unless you can afford the time to learn how to keep it alive, or have the money to pay someone to do it for you

Thanks for your input! I would love to work with a team at some point.

I have a significantly less into mine than you would think. My "long travel kit" is conversion beam brackets to run the Bronco Dana 44 beams, and a simple shock mount for coilovers. Rear suspension is Deavers and triple bypass's. It may be too soon for you to commit on a welder and some fab tools, but I can tell you from experience that with some basic fab tools, you can save a ton on building a prerunner.

Ya i'm pretty sure i'm going to do 99% of the fab and work myself. Unless I buy one done already.
