6 Replies and 1694 Views Wheel size question  1694  6 Started by  Chris With the new wheel size rules in place for 2015, I'm trying to understand how it pertains to wheel width. I'm looking to pick up a new Golf R, (DS) which will be initially launched with 19x8 wheels, but the regular model to follow will have 18x7.5 in wheels. Does that mean I could run 18x8 in wheels or even 17x8

8 Replies and 2292 Views Catch Can ruling  2292  8 Started by  Shawn mcallister So What i am trying to find out is in the rules it states that you can use a catch can in Street(stock) Class. What i want to know is if a AOS would be ok as well since they do the same thing the only differece is that the AOS lets the oil drain back in to the oil pan. So would there be a problem with installing a AOS in Street( stock) class WRX.    thanks  AUTOx

7 Replies and 2910 Views Street class cars older than 30 yrs not allowed?  2910  7 Started by  ReijoAS A friend just stumbled across this rule:  (page 69): 'A car will remain eligible for National events through the end of the 30th  calendar year after the manufacturer-designated model year of the car.  This eligibility limitation applies only to the Street classes.' This means his stock '84 MR2 is no longer eligible to compete next year. Anyone know why this paragraph is in the rule book  Notably Corvettes, for example, can be found right back to the original one in the...

Was thinking about this at nationals and since I got home - I wrote up a rough draft of a proposal, and thought I would bring it here to see what people thought. Warning: these are big changes, but I genuinely believe it would be good for SCCA and participation overall: Proposal for 2015 Solo Season Purpose: Class rearrangement for higher participation numbers for regional and national level events, as well as “phasing” out some older hard to find cars for newer ones. This ...

5 Replies and 2483 Views Genesis Coupe/370z classing and competitiveness  2483  5 Started by  coneassasin I've been playing around with the idea of buying a 14' gen coupe r spec for Street. It's pretty obvious that no one has spent any time developing these cars for street classes. I know there is an issue with good aftermarket dampers, but I think I've got that part figured out. My question is this: why is the 370z and Gen coupe not in the same class  The cars are very similar in size, weight, power, the one exception being that the gen coupe has narrower wheels.  Those difference...

6 Replies and 2224 Views Track Modifications in Street Class   2224  6 Started by  ltborg I'm looking at doing a few modifications to my B-Street car to make it more reliable at track days. One of the things I would like to do is add the C5 Z06 rear brake ducts, which require a hole/vent in the rocker panel of the car (see these picture instructions for details).   Since the ducts themselves bolt in with a single bolt, what I am wondering is if I removed these for autocross competition and blocked the vent in the rocker and inner fender, would this be considered a comfort and ...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 ... 4 )
Given the changes to street tires and some of the classing changes...voice your opinions on the dominant car(s) in each class. To start the discussion: SS - Elise...can anything catch it on street tires AS - no idea here...newer cayman/boxter S BS - C5, S2000 (likely to be very course dependent; curious if NSX might sneak in there...) CS - NB Miata Sport, FRS/BRZ seem like contenders.  Any thoughts on e36M3, or NISMO350Z DS - 3.2TT, 2011 WRX ES - 1.8 miata R FS - no idea here.....
