I have a nonMazda question for the SCCA experts!

First of all, thanks for all the help in determining my class.

I was hoping you could do the same for my brother.

2002 BMW m3: currently has Lowering springs, Rims, Headers, Tune, Intake and Stripped rear interior.

Rims have street tires:

18*8.5 with 235-40-18 front
18*9.5 with 265-35-18 rear

Let me know if you need anything else!

Matt

I tried Autocross once, and won....I think i'm gonna like this.

The standard E46 M3 wheel measures 8x18-inches in the front and 9x18-inches in the rear, with 225/45ZR18 and 255/40ZR18 tires.

Re: I have a nonMazda question for the SCCA experts!

Due to the stripped rear interior he's in SM at least. If he took out more than back seat then he may be looking at Prepared. If he can restore the stripped interior to close to stock then he would be looking at STU I believe.

Re: I have a nonMazda question for the SCCA experts!

Put the interior back in and he's in STU, as long as his tires have a tread wear of 140 or higher.

go to page 80 for the ST rules

http://scca.cdn.racersites.com/prod/...ules_March.pdf

and page 181 for car class listings

hope that helps

Steve

Re: I have a nonMazda question for the SCCA experts!

Since we're on the topic of classing a car, I wanna make sure I'm in the right class for this coming summer

2004 Mazda3

cat back exhaust and header
Hotchkis rear sway bar
Hoosiers

I'm pretty sure that'll put me in FSP? And if I add the front sway bar would that put me in a different class?

The only thing that puts you in FSP is the header. Take it off and you are in HS

Re: I have a nonMazda question for the SCCA experts!

Cat back and RSB are allowed in H-stock? I thought it was just tires.

There is quite a bit allowed in SCCA Stock Classes.

Shocks
Exhaust
Tires
One sway bar change
Air Filter
Heck, you can even re-do the engine up to the first factory overbore or .010 over (or is it .020?)

Don't forget lighter wheels (as long as they are within guidelines stated in the rules of course).
