    I was going to build my own drifter/racer, but unfortunately must save for a house instead :(

    I race superkarts, as Michael Schumacher quoted, "its the closest thing to F1 you can get"

    They're cheap, fun, goes over 200 km/h and we race at eastern creek on the GP circuit as well as wakefield. If you are really keen you can travel interstate and hook up with the guys from QLD, VIC, SA etc and do their club events too. If you want any more info PM me

    If you spent about $5-10k you could get into a fun and safe club car, mx5, s13/14/15 Skyline or even a Galant lol.

    You need good brake pads, brake fluid, semi slicks, half cage, seat, harness, fire extinguisher.
    Sure you don't need all that stuff, but if you want to have fun and not break stuff and be safe, its pretty much a gotta have list.

    You gotta decide how serious you want to get, best to decide on the outset as it will cost you much less buying something ready to go.
    Likely smart move is buying someone else's track car vs building your own.

    I definitely agree about buying something ready to race instead of building one up. Right now someone is selling their pride and joy that they have built and raced and broken and built stronger because they need money for a house or something. You want to find a car like that to buy, and spend your play money on racing instead of building a race car.
