    Well, cruising through the 2000 Solo rules;

    If you were stock - F-stock - P160

    With the mods you list;
    E-Street Prepared - P169
    Depending on the brake mods you plan.
    See P100 for street prepared brake modification limits. If it doesn't say it can be done, it can't.

    If you exceed the brake modification limits above, you would run E-Modified - P210

    Oh, one other thing.
    I think, when your refering to upper A-frames your talking about the front suspension A-arms.
    Looking at pages 102-104 in the solo rules, Changing them wouldn't be allowed for street prepared, which would bump you to E-modified

    OK....one more thing.

    From P110 for Prepared category.
    As there is no listing for your truck under the prepared category until specifically classified by the SEB. You can't run any Nationalor Divisional level events. The progression up the modification scale tend to follow the same as the Camaro and Mustang so, I would, at a guess, if you showed up at one of our events and wanted to run prepared, put you in C-Prepared.

    OK, I think I got it all?

    Thanks for the info
    Sounds like I better get used to running last if I would be placed in C prepared..Oh well at least I can listen to the cd and run the a/c while I'm getting my tail handed to me by race prepared vehicles..[talk about a tough way to start]
    Thank you again for the research and help...

    One thing I forgot I thought I might fall into a street mod class thought that would be tough enough for me and my pickup.

    Maybe you should ask about an SMT ("street mod truck") class in your region! SCCAForums Image Unfortunately, unless the truck is a four seater with a viscous limited slip (if it has a limited slip), it wouldn't be legal for "regular" SM, but depending on how many trucks typically show up at your events, you may be able to convince your club to start a specialty class.

    But you would fit right in with the CP crowd!! You can haul the kegs to the party after the event!! They would welcome you with open arms. Go find some slicks and have a blast!

    Well, as Karen had suggested, you might want to ask your regional people about a SMT class.

    Per P262 Street Modified class is open to only sedans and coupes with four seats and four sets of seatbelts.

    Thanks we're going to try to get our local people to let us have a truck or SMT class so we can race each other, which is what we want to do anyway...

    Karen must have SM confused with ST, as there is a LSD rule in STS, but SM is open. (I think Dennis wanted it that way so that he could run front/center/rear LSDs in his Talon. SCCAForums Image)

    Locally, in SoCal, we have a Sport Truck class (now just called Truck, since the advent of Street Touring). It's pretty wide open - if it's a truck or SUV, it can race here. A sample of vehicles - Nissan FSP pickup, VW pickup, 2WD Ford Bronco II, Dodge Dakota Club Cab (131 in. WB!), and a Dakota R/T Reg. Cab.

    I've been wondering about that, because I'm thinking of autocrossing my '96 S-10 with a 2.2 four banger. Steel wheels. Why? Because I have the payment book! But it does appear that I'll be tossed into the same class with cars of similar horsepower, but a half ton less weight and a foot lower Cg.

    Oh, well, it does carry my tools to work!

    If you've got any buddies with Typhoons, Syclones, Lightnings, or just modded trucks ya'll should try going together, that way there would be enough to justify a class.
