      "up" in southern ohio doesn't quite make sense, but I guess if your speaking in relation to California and such then thats a little better.

      How "south" are you? not over here in the southwestern corner are ya? If so there is a somewhat happenin SCCA scene, I've yet to compete as my brakes/suspension project isn't complete, but there are a LOT of Miatas, Minis, and Vettes, only 1 or 2 Pro-Tourers to speak of, and even then they are pretty much just restored original cars with 17" wheels.

      Went out to the local Autocross on Sunday. It was windy as hell, but a lot of fun to get the car out there and slice up some cones. Needless to say, the car got a lot of attention and I gave several rides to people. Here's some pics. Video in the next post.


      got a little cone rash! :willy: No worries, it'll clay bar out

      I love to autox but I have to drive an hour or so. And it's not in the best location. But it's a blast.

      These are from this past Sunday in Gainesville, FL. Got 6 runs in. I defintly put the go slow to go fast saying to use. But it was still like driving on ice with the cheap tires I have.





      Love this shot

      69: Love how your car looks man. Want to paint mine white, but everyone mad dogs it. Where did you get your front spoiler at, or did you make it? Been looking for one for my car a little bit.

      I need to find a local gathering of auto-xers so I can learn how to drive. It looks like so much fun.

      a few pics of my '68 camaro SCCA Solo II here in Hawaii

      Here are few pics from my autocross adventures here in hawaii.
      Car is a 68 Camaro with DSE tubulars, Koni coilover conversion, drop springs in back with adjustable Konis, DSE power steering, Baer track 13" front 12" rear. I'm running a SBC 355 with retrofit roller cam, 1.6 roller rockers, Holley Stealth Ram, mated to a TKO 600 via aluminum flywheel. Aluminum driveshaft back to a 12 bolt with a 3.73:1 gear. I run in CP.

      For starters, get the current Solo II rulebook as it will become your Bible for this sport. It's online and you can download the sections you need, or you can buy one for about $20 directly from SCCA. There are weight penalties for tube-frame cars and weight allowances for V6 engines. Some of those V6 engined F-bodies are fast . . . there are two that can easily dominate CP and both are here on the west coast.

      Unfortunately, you'll also be looking at a tow vehicle and trailer if you get really serious with CP or even a Street Prepared car. The modifications it takes to be even remotely competitive will take the car off the street very fast.

      E Street Prepared, or ESP, is one category down from Prepared and you should be able to change most of the suspension, wheels and tires, a little of the engine, add a good exhaust, and be competitive out of the box. While it's not Prepared, the level of competition is just as fierce as CP is. Out here in CA, some of the ESP cars turn the same times as CP cars do. Most are still street driven as well. Again, get the SCCA Solo II rule book to make sure what you do is legal for the class you run in.

      Cheers and keep on this thread,

      I agree, Mary is on it.

      ESP or Street Touring would cover the street driven cars. You have to be aware of the rules before you go buying stuff for you car. Just like in any from of actual competition. A lot of the stuff advertised here and that people "want" to put on thier cars are not legal in those two classes.

      I think Cal Club was trying or has a Vintage class that runs under an index. That might be for ESP and Street Touring.

      That's probably why most of these Pro Turing aftermarket companies don't dive-in and embrace SCCA Solo II. They huddle around these Goodguys type events that are sorta racing since they share the same course, but other than that it's just a free for all.

      That's a fair bit of positive camber showing there . . . looked into any fixes yet?

      My second time out. I don't quite understand the class system... In "street modified" I'm grouped with some turbo AWD Mitsubishis & Subarus. Whatever, it's still fun!!

      Street Mod is sort of an engine tuner's class, as there is huge freedom as far as the powertrain is concerned (I think the block has to be by the same mfr as the chassis but you're free to do most anything with it).

      But in terms of chassis modification SM is still a "street" category, being a lot more restrictive than either prepared or modified.

      I'm guessing that there are things about your engine that don't fit within either Street Touring or Street Prepared, such as an aftermarket cam or other internals.
