Post 323 GTX allowed in Street Touring, what's next?

http://www.scca.org/news/tech/seb/02-04-01.html, I believe the snowball effect is in place since they allowed in the Golf 1.8 Turbo. This car is turbo and AWD!

you might remove that last comma from the link, it works better.

They are proposing some huge changes, especially in Prepared. Sweet, and the Street Modified minimum weights did go through. Now there's a lesser concern about a really light dominating force (like an RX3).

They specifically allowed more than the 323 GTX in STS--
Quote:
19) Street Touring: per the STAC, add to the list of approved vehicles: Mazda GTX (awd), Mazda 323 GT, Volvo S40 and V40, VW Passat 1.8T.
The GTX is 2600lb and 132HP stock. Yes it will be a problem if someone has increased the boost (which is of course not permitted), but otherwise the car is no real threat. If anything have your protest money ready...

Oh, Goody I think I can ram my SHo down thier throat then. My modifications would leave me in a Prepared class, or in SM. SM is a whole lot weaker around here, and the can't really bitch about .1L displacement, when they are pulling crap like that.

Nah, Mine is an auto, so it has a factory overbore that bumbs displacement to 3.2L

SO, its over thier STS 3.1L, and I forgot what was FKN my SM idea. Basicly once it runs again its going to have very lumpy cams and bigger valves.

No big deal then if it's not forced induction you can go up to 6.0L whether it's pushrod or OHC.

there's a 323 GTX around here that i go driving with sometimes. its quick. its basiclly stock except for the probe IC and well matched for a stock RS.

my whole take on the situation is that there needs to be some serious restructuring of the classes. hell, GS is supposed to be large sedans, yet the ITR and celica GT-S are in it hopefully everything will be sorted out next year.

If you've got an older SHO with the 3.0L yammer V6, then you're fine for forced induction. If you've bored or stroked it beyond 3.0L, up to .040" overbore is legal but nothing else is. Technically. In reality you're fine as long as you don't have national aspirations AND whoop arse. I wouldn't protest you, but some whiner might.
