Re: Another newbie classing question

I can't help you on the registration part, but your car does sound correct in STR. Welcome!

Re: Newbie needs help classing his car

Welcome! The cat delete automatically bumps you up considerably. You would be eligible for CSP, XP, XS, or STM. Prep levels go from CSP (least amount of prep) to XP and XS (higher amounts of prep). STM is a local class that's basically run what you brung as long as your tire treadwear rating is 200 ...

Re: Looking for a car

Speaking for someone that has one with just under 90k miles, they typically need a chunk of maintenance at that age. Also, low mile cars don't necessarily get you off the hook either. IMO, they are all a crap shoot since they are all roughly 20 years old. Stuff ages even at low miles. I know people ...

Re: Looking for a car

As Brian mentioned, C5Z. Done. To me, there's no reason why a C5 can't be faster than the C6 or C7 in CAM, though. More work, yes but also most likely faster when properly built at the pointy end. There's one with lots of goodies currently for sale on FB. It seems to have a lot of the right stuff al...

Re: Bruce Bellom

He was a great guy. Taught the Evo at Walter State with him and would talk to him from time to time at events. I didn't know he was sick until I heard he had passed. He will be missed.

Re: March 7th check in

I haven't even seen my car most of the winter. I'm going to be running with tires and a setup that hasn't been on it before. It should be a learning experience. Oh, and it should have less horsepower than last year. lol

Re: Classing

Welcome! Not having a cat on the car will bump you to CSP. There's a lot you can do at that prep level. You would also be eligible for XP, XS, or STM. Those are all a higher prep level than CSP. STM is a local class that we created that allows anything you can think of as long as you meet safety rul...

Re: Fox body mustang question

You must be a flamer if you want to run 13" wheels on a Mustang. Does that help? :lol: In all seriousness, I have never seen an autocross Mustang on 13s but don't let that stop you. Have fun with it. You know, base model 65 Mustangs had 13" wheels and so did the "Pinto" Mustangs ...
