    Hi everyone. I'm Mike and I drive a '98 neon coupe.
    SCCAForums Image
    Purty ain't she?

    I'm fairly familiar with the rules for STS, but there are a few things i'm not totally sure on. Am i allowed to take steps to prevent breaking things while racing?
    The first thing is motor mounts. I drag race on weekends i'm not autoxing, and i've filled my motor mounts with urethane to prevent them from breaking (again). How long can I get away with this in STS?
    Thanks for any advice!

    I'm pretty sure that you motor (& tranny) mounts must remain unmodified. So adding urethane to the stock ones would not be legal.

    I do know that Neon owners specifically petitioned the SCCA to allow stronger motor mounts because of breakage, but that petition was denied.

    Opie. You sir are correct! (best Ed McMahon impression).

    Many people in STS thought that motor mounts should be allowed, but it didn't make it into the rules this year.

    As to how long you can get away with it, that depends on your competition. You can probably get away locally, and maybe even at Nat tours (except in Colorado), as long as you aren't beating too many people.

    When you start winning, people start looking more closely at your car.
