Here is a list of parts you will need for a conversion from a running Formula Vee to a Running Formula First.


* These are prices as of this date  6/2012.  Prices can change. SR Racing can offer you a package price that will save you quite a bit from what your total might be. Also with a trip to a well supplied VW salvage yard or other VW vendors, you may find better pricing.

** This can vary slightly with desired options, cooler and oil plumbing type etc.  Your running FV engine can be sold for anywhere from $1500 to $3500 depending upon history, etc. 

So, if you purchase all from a retailer (most new),  you will approach $7000.  Some items torsion arms, beams, etc, can be found at salvage yards and VW flea marts.  You should be able to sell your existing FV components for anywhere from $2000 to $5000. Depending upon how much you race, your net savings could be $1000 to $2000 per year. (tire longevity). Most FST parts are less expensive, new and readily available. So there could be a bit more savings. (Brakes, etc.) Engine rebuilds run about the same as FV, except most parts are less expensive.
