    Your car is too new for any IT class, which only allows cars older than 5 years.

    Depending on where you are located, your region might have a nice regional class where you would fit.

    But if you're really only a header/cat away from showroom stock, your best bet is to convert back while you're doing all of the other race prep (roll cage, harnesses, window net, fire extinguisher, etc).

    You know that in addition to prepping the car before you race, you have to attend a school, right?

    Go to scca.com, click Club Racing on the left side, then "Go Racing". It'll outline the process for you.

    Stop all prep work until you buy the General Competition Rules (GCR). That will keep you from wasting time and money on things you can't use on the car. The GCR is the cheapest thing you'll buy for racing.

    You don't even have to buy the GCR anymore! The 07 version has just been released for download at scca.org

    Oops! And I forgot about the new ITR class - the Acura RSX-S is classified, but only the 2002 model. I expect that in three years the 2005 model will also be eligible. Here's a quick link to the Improved Touring rules....

    How about this plan - put the car back into Showroom Stock configuration and race SSB for a few years. Meanwhile, take a look at what cars are competitive in ITR. There are some powerful cars classified - you may find that the RSX-S is a lost cause.

    In the end, making the changes for SS will be a lot less expensive that the upgrades necessary for ITR. Plus, you'll be racing instead of waiting for the car to be eligible for ITR. Here's the quick link to the SS rules http://www.scca.com/_FileLibrary/Fi...mStock.pdf

    It's always less expensive and easier to start with a car that already has been built, raced and sorted. The car generally comes with a wealth of knowledge (chassis setups and tires pressure info) that takes forever to perfect on your own. If you ask anybody that started from scratch, they will confirm this. While my advise is true, yes I have a couple cars for sale. They can be seen at www.randypapa.com
