Anyone know anything about NASA?
I tried reading up a little bit on classification for cars and it's just soo much.

Anyone wanna give me rough break down?

I'd be using my pro-am fd car:

-tube front
-cage
-coilovers
-knuckles
-arms
-roll center corrections
-oem nissan diff (from wrong car lol) welded
-built SR 500whp e85
-for road racing I'd be running aero, front splitter, wing, side splitters, under carriage and cooling is ducted. (fmic, radiator out of hood)


From what I saw on NASA's stuff, I'd be competing with tube chassis cars. Which means I'd be screwwwwed, because obviously my car's not built from the ground up for time-attack lol. -_-


Any decent class my car would fit in for SCCA?

Sorry, both SCCA and NASA has restrictions for good competitive reasons.

The best thing you could do is grab another car and build it to competitive spec in the class you want to compete in, not the other way around.

Otherwise, go spec Miata.

Yeah, for scca autox you're in EP I think.

I don't think there's a club racing class where you could race wheel to wheel.

Thats what she said. Read the whole manual, its only 320pgs. There are people out there that do read it, and they are the competitive ones.

Alternatively, you can just show up at an SCCA event and ask the tech inspectors or seasoned autoxers.

If you're just looking for fun, sign up for some time attach events.

There are, but you have to pass some tests and obtain licensing to do wheel to wheel. The propper SCCA wheel to wheel alone are very expensive compared to regular time-attack sessions overall. This is why I recommend going spec Miata because they are reliably stout little machinese that you don't have to worry breaking down on you easily. Engines themselves are very cheap to rebuild as well.

When going wheel to wheel, you have to remember it's going to be dented and you will need to fix those dents. They don't like having car that look like "rust buckets."

haha, very much true. Even if there is one, very few would want to race in a class where budget of $100,000 reign supreme.

For those still wondering, NASA has a class calculator on their site. Check it out http://www.nasa-tt.com/Rules
