Wondering if it’s wise to get your own drift car? Keep in mind that in addition to the parts above it takes approximately 8 weeks labor to fabricate and install everything per car. 40 hours per week x 8 weeks = 320 hours. If you consider you won’t find a good race shop that bills out at under $140/ hour, even at $100 an hour it still puts the labor bill at $32,000.
Base car = $10,000
Parts = $15,972.04
Labor = $32,000
This doesn’t include maintenance in parts and labor.
