    Ok, have a few questions. Just completed my first year in FS and had a really good time. Due to a possible sponsor deal, I'll have to move out of FS and on to another class. Here is a list of what will be done, and what I'd like to do. 

    1. Shorty headers and high flow cats

    2. Lowered 1 inch all the way around.

    3. Larger rear sway bar.

    4. Front lower splitter under the factory splitter/lower spoiler.

    5. Rear seat delete, upper and lower.

    6. Cold air intake, not open, but sealed lid style open under the lid.

    7. Remove all interior trunk lining.

    8. Z/28 rear spoiler/ GT wing, carbon fiber from APR.

    So, the questions are, what's a yes or no. And is ESP going to be the correct class. Only performance enhancement is the cold air, and exhaust. No tune required.

    Thanks from a first year newbie.

    I'm thinking 1,2,3,4,6 are ESP legal, others put you in SM.

    Also, I don't know if this was just omitted, but to be competitive in ESP, you're going to need R-Comp tires, preferably hoosiers.

    Thanks for the tire suggestion. That's next on the list. My G2's are good when it's warm and dry. No so good in the cold and wet as I found out yesterday.

    Subjective interpretations of "good" is a relative thing.

    Wide wheels, A6's, legal weight reductions and some good double adjustable shocks are good ideas (in addition to above legal mods). If ESP is your desired class at least. And as much seat time as you can afford

    I guess I'm just not feeling this project much. The car as it sits is very competitive but in order to be remotely close in ESP, you are going to have to a whole lot more than what you are suggesting and your tire observation suggests the first nut to turn is the one behind the wheel.

    Z3, understood and yes seat time is on the priority list. Being that the exhaust will be changed the class move is required. Locally I'm not far off the ESP guys and seat time will help with that. My tire issue is only when it's really hot or as the case this weekend, cool and wet. The other option is STU and the all wheel drive cars are way out of reach currently.
