sxoc scrapheap challenge


Ex. Club Member
The scox have come up with a really good idea here to get the club members together and also everyone around the country

Details are below, would be cool if we had a chance to do something like this someday, would benefit everyone really... copy and pasted from sxoc site..

Scrapheap challenge drag race


1) Total cost of car and components must not exceed £500

2) Any car can be used except 200sx's.

3) Bikes are not allowed though bike parts can be used.

4) Any car (not including engine) that is donated will be counted as £150 out of the team budget

5) Any engine that is donated will be counted as £50 out of the team budget

6) Donated parts can be used but teams must be willing to leave them on the cars afterwards

7) Unused parts can be sold from the donor cars to recoup team costs but not ploughed back into the budget

8) Each teams car should be declared at the start of the build (so each team has an idea what they're up against, once the build starts you can be as secretive as you like)

9) Raw materials are not included in the budget (eg, steel, aluminium, paint, fluids, etc)

10) MOT's and tax are optional. Standard parts required to pass an MOT and MOT/tax fees are not included in the budget (to aid teams without access to a trailer)

11)Teams look after their own budget, personal donations to the budget are at the discretion of each individual team.

12) Cars MUST be scrutineered for safety before the event by a qualified tester

13) Competition starts as soon as you've read these rules and the main event will be held at the end of September

The challenges *

Points will be awarded for each challenge **

1st place = 10 points
2nd place = 6 points
3rd place = 4 points
4th place = 3 points
5th place = 2 points
6th place = 1 point

1) A head to head drag shootout between teams at the end of September (no venue decided yet)

2) Best posted quarter mile time at the above event

3) best looking dragster (to be decided by an SXOC poll the week before the main event)

4) Money raised for charity (method of raising cash to be decided upon by the individual teams)

* Additional challenges may be added if a majority of teams agree to them and a suitable venue can be found. (ie, handling challenge, braking distance, etc)

** MOT'd cars, driven to the event under their own power will be awarded a 5 point head start.


There are no rules governing how the teams are run or what size they can be. How you run the team is up to yourselves.

11)Teams look after their own budget, personal donations to the budget are at the discretion of each individual team.
Doesnt that mean as long as he has the cash he can buy watever engine he wants? plus...

5) Any engine that is donated will be counted as £50 out of the team budget
so the jag engine would only be £50 lol

Think it would be doable mate, but at the moment we've still to finish your car for JAE! Think if we get that outta the way first, then we could do it?


Ex. Club Member
Yeah I was thinking about that.... Was also wondering where we would get this £500 from tho to be able to do it cos I'm skint! lol


Micra K11ng
Good point! If we got a list of who was wanting to help out, then between us if we all threw in some cash to make the £500? Prob best idea, but we'll see!


Ex. Club Member
hahha,. neil they are the prices that are charged for the work to be done!! not all of them needs doing each overlap one another , so get one not the other etc,
