Hey guys I need some help making sense of the SCCA rule book.
I’m Currently building a track day car that I would also like to compete in autocross and solo events. I’m not looking to build a car to a specific class, just looking to have some fun.
Here are some of the specs that i assume would dedicate what class I’m in.
1985 VW golf 4 door
2000 VW passat 1.8 turbo motor, built for around 300whp
tubular adjustable subframe with adjustable control arms and adjustable steering rack positioning for Ackerman - bump steer tuning. Control arm pickup points drastically moved from original location.
tubular front frame section from strut towers forward, highly modified strut towers, raised pickup points, adjustable for camber, kingpin inclination and castor
Highly modified later model knuckles with moved pickup points and trailing calipers, (instead of leading)
aluminum fuel cell in non stock location
rear trunk section removed for diffuser
15x10 wheels and big brakes, big for 15" wheels that is
***** possible chopped top to lower between 2 to 4 inches ***** I wont do the chop top if its not legal, even with a well designed cage.
So would this be legal in any classes? Thanks for spending the time to read this and reply.

Sounds like EM to me.
AFAIK, all of the things you intend to do would not be legal for a prepared class, but someone else who knows the EP/FP rules can better answer about that.

Might be legal in Prepared under some interpretation of the GT rules… Is the VW eligible in GT3?
Otherwise, EM is the place for you.

X-prepared or E-modified. Is a chopped top allowed in either class?
