Video: Two Different Ways To Prepare a Datsun Roadster for the $2000 Challenge

Sure, both teams may have built Datsun Roadsters to compete in our $2000 Challenge, but both teams certainly built them much differently: where one team dropped in a turbocharged KA24DE engine, the other team fitted its Datsun body over a Formula 440 car. Presented by CRC Industries.

When the builds are this wild, does anyone really lose at the $2000 Challenge?

I am really excited to see what both of these cars look like at the 2021 challenge.

Very well done video!  Thank you for the time and effort.

I get to show my wife what we do, and have video evidence of us not being weird or crazy (well...).
