    Hey everyone I am new here. I've raced a few races this last past summer and I'm addicted. I picked up a 2nd car for racing and starting to prep it. Goal in a few years is hill climb and maybe time attack. But for now I'm auto crossing.

    Will removing my spare tire well kick me out of SM class?

    What do you mean by removing the "spare tire well"?

    I am sorry about the late answer. I'm talking about cutting out the spare tire well in the trunk and rivet a pieces of flat aluminum. Saves some weight and makes for more usable spaces.

    Hmm, that is a good question. In SM seems like that may be allowed, I know it would be in Prepared... but not sure about SM.

      My prepared car has no trunk floor, which was removed to allow for fuel cell installation (17.2.E). SM rules allow modification to internal body panels to accommodate a fuel cell (16.1.D.3.D.2) but the modification can serve no other purpose. This is made clearer in 16.1.P where changes just for weight reduction are prohibited. So I would say that you cannot simply remove the spare tire well in SM.

    Hope that helps,

    Joe
