Tips On A New Tatum Build

Recommended Posts

For those that have had Tatum build a car for them, any tips? I'm looking to have a TRX-4 or a PreRunner built (not sure which yet). Curious if there are any options or things you would do or not do or anything I should supply, do myself, or outsource. Thanks for any tips!! Super pumped to have exactly what I want built!

The S4D is so comparable and tested now at 1/2 the price I would go with that, assuming money means something to the build

Congrats - 

For me it was the paint scheme.. not many options unless you want to really spend - but you have to live with it and if it looks like every other Tatum out there, well ....

Oh and definitely if you can afford it go Albins.  The Weddle's  (Mendi's) work well, but Albins is in another category

Definitely going to go Albins and carbon fiber body.  I had one person mention their wiring work wasnt the best and recommended I have someone else wire it?  Any one else have similar thoughts?

My biggest piece of advice would be to go in knowing it’s going to take a year to build and cost 200k. You may get roped in at 160 and 6 months but it doesn’t work that way.  Going in with that mindset of 200k/1yr is the way to go. Because then they may get it done cheaper and quicker so you’ll be happily surprised and life is good. But if you Go in thinking 160k/6months and then go over budget and miss out on planned dune trips you’ll get frustrated and it takes the fun out of the build. not worth it.  Also, depending on your motor package and car options you can go well over the 200k marker, but you get the point 

And if you don’t pull the trigger soon you won’t have a car till 2021. They’re build list is only getting longer :cheers:

It will do wheel stands at 150mph! Tatum has 40 cars on order so if you want to skip the line and not wait deep into next season for a new car, this is for you. Selling for a friend as he is building a brand new Tatum four seater and will offer this car for sale through March only, and will then keep it for next season and this ad will be removed. He will consider an immaculate LS Name Brand Sandrail only, as trade. Send pics to avidgolfer44@gmail.comwith description. Thanks!

Thank you for the advice!!

Beautiful car DWB! But its gotta be a 4 seater. A lot of the reason I'm wanting to build a car is specific features I want to include that I've done to my current car and havent seen on others. I also have a really nice motor that I'd like to use since I'll never get what it's worth back out of it.

There is no comparison between the S4D and an Albins. Yes an S4D is a great trans for the money but it's in a totally different league than an Albins. For one the Albins 5 speed is stronger than a 4 speed S4D. Maybe not by much but it's a 5 speed. An S5D doesn't even compare in strength. Once you drive a car with an Albins you'll know immediately. The S4D is a great budget big HP tranny but the Albins for sure if money doesn't matter. You get a stronger tranny with an additional gear.

The owner of that car just received his new racer car and has no need for this one is my guess

Curious for those of you who have ordered a new car from a major builder.  What is the policy for deposit, progress payments, etc?  When they deliver the car, is it 100% sorted out, or you pick it up and deal with the tiny problems?
