Default SCCA information required

i'm looking for someone who specifically knows classes and rules.

i'm building a car that will end up having chassis mods and I don't know if it will be allowed in any classes. now before I cut/hack/replace anything, i want to know, if there are any classes the car will be allowed in... the rules I've found seem basic, and when it comes to tech, nothing is basic... ever.

Class info is very clear as far as what you can do for each type of event.
ie: F stock, street prepared, etc
First: define what do you mean by SCCA racing?
Autox? Road Race? Etc....

i've look and I haven't found anything on frame or sub frame mods allowed.

i'm trying to find out what class I would fall into with my car having mods to the k frame and rear sub frame so I don't know what class. so far it's not looking promising.

Other than the GT classes, and a couple other catch all classes, there is not much allowed in any factory tub classes as far as changing suspension geometry.

Basically they have the rules organized to Limit mods, If your running a camaro,, A-sedan or Touring are the likely slots and they have some pretty straight up limits.. Engine sizes and parts etc.. To be competitive budget 35K in either class. And about a million hours of track time..

Go into GT with a tub car and your getting your lunch money taken..

SCCA racing is won reading the rule book the basic rule is that if its not called out as legal, its not.

NASA has more mods allowed if thats your thing and they are more fun to run with.

NASA wouldn't be bad if they are lenient...

really all I want to do is drive the car on track... but it would be nice to compete as well if possible.

Off the top of my head, NASA AI or AIX might be fits. If you were doing autocross, then SCCA CAM would be good. Keep in mind, there are "high speed autocross" competitions out there. I believe South bend SCCA plans on having one at Gingerman raceway this spring.

NASA AIX may be the right class for you. A lot of mods are allowed, but there are some restrictions. Read through the rule book and see how it applies to you.

You could also consider Time Trials. I have heard the SCCA is eliminating Time Attack in a lot of regions. Most TT classes are based on power to weight, but there are some other aerodynamic and chassis considerations. And there's always TTU, which is unlimited.
