Greetings, I have been reading the SCCA rulebook for the past week. And would like to find if my current car is legal for the EM class. What I have is a 1980s Buick Regal that was built in 2010 for the UMP Street Stock rules. But since the racing sanction updated the rules, my car is no longer legal to do some dirt track racing. Like I said, the car is a 80s Buick Regal. We are still using the factory OEM body, firewall, frame, suspension, and half of the floorpan. What I mean about the floorpan is that the passenger side is gone. We also enclosed the passenger side as well (like a dirt late model/modified). We have a safe roll cage, but it is offset to the left side. And since it was a dirt car at first, we do not have a windscreen or any windows. We are also running a fabricated hood and trunk lid. And the trunk is open at the back of the car. It is not enclosed.
We are running a 355 cubic inch small block chevy with a 2 speed powerglide transmission with no torque converter. Basically direct drive. Based on that, I seen that the base weight for a unlimited piston weight is 1800lbs. Currently, with no driver or fluids, we are around 2300lbs. So I am curious on what the final race weight should be?
If I read the rules right, according to my thoughts, my car would be legal to EM. But the no windscreen, and exposed trunk is my biggest fears. With new slicks, and suspension setup, I believe it would be a fun car to run in EM!
Just trying to make sure that it would be legal before I put more money into it.
