There are lots of other fix-it stuff, articles and stories.
A big section is devoted to the building of a GT-6 racer from scratch. Choosing the best of 3 junkers, the racer is built up over the period of the past twenty months and covered in detail, from suspension, drive line, body additions and fixing, making lexan windows, to the engine dyno run.
