I have a 1971 Mini Cooper
Engine changed to a larger but factory available for that year Mini.
Exhaust Header
Added wheel flares
Stock size wheels with offset to increase tire footprint width slightly
Yokohama A008 tires
Interior stripped except for (2) front seats
4 point Roll bar (2 mid points, 2 rear points)
Adjustable Coil spring replacement with ride height adjustment in place of rubber cone suspension
Front disc brakes replacing drum brakes
Rear adjustable sway bar

I think that the above would put me in Street Prepared

I want to add camber caster to the front by using negative caster arms and adjustable tie rods for caster/toe in adjustment. Would this addition put me in Street Modified?


Nationally because of the gutted interior that would put you in at least E-Prepared.
Locally you could run CST- if you put on 140 tw tires or CSM if you would like to run your current tires.


Thanks Anthony, if I add a basic interior will that put me back into Street Prepared?

Interior should be stock in Street Prepared, except for seats, seatbelts and steering wheel. Also, if you have a roll bar, it must meet these specifications:

The Chevy Bolt EV is now allowed and classed into H Street:
https://dk1xgl0d43mu1.cloudfront.net/us ... r-Solo.pdf

However, I put 0.5" wider wheels in mine which puts me into one of the Street Touring classes.
I'm not sure, but the “Catch-all” rule for STS might work:

Sedans & Coupes NOC (non-sports-car-based; 4-seat minimum;
up to 3.1L normally-aspirated)

The displacement of my electric motor would be... zero; and maybe "normally-aspirated" can be stretched to mean "not-aspirated-at-all".

I don't mind being in an class where my car is uncompetitive (CST works for me, too). It is far more important that I preserve expensive and slippery stock tires (on stock wheels) for long trips; and eventually get extra camber to reduce sidewall wear.

I might get a NOS sticker to make my car more intimidating, too :)


Edit: asking SEB for clarification (#23449). Meanwhile, will probably be running the cheap Rikens on stock wheels in HS this coming weekend to get a baseline on how the car handles on stock form.

Hello,

I looked at the rules but need help figuring out which class to register Laura’s M2 in. It’s stock.

Thanks.

Hey Matt,

The doc you want is here:

https://dk1xgl0d43mu1.cloudfront.net/user_files/scca/downloads/000/037/724/2017-8-25-appendix-A-automobile-classes.pdf

Search for M2 and you'll find it in B Street (page 145, under BMW heading). "M2 (except Performance Edition ZL9) (2016-17)"

If Laura's got the Performance Edition ZL9 (I don't think that's what she has but just in case) she's in A Street.
