get everything out of the car as you can to help save weight, spare tire; rear seats... etc. NEVER go with a full take of gas. it's best to have just enough to run your few laps. take a 2 gallon gas can with you just to be safe you are allowed to run track tires but the size must be the stock size and so do the rims. it's best to walk the course a few times as they allow you to before the event so make sure you do that. you can sneak in with a good tune and they wouldn't know about it. that july 9th event sounds like a good time and place. only like a 3 hour drive for me.

i need to get my new class #'s, anybody have a chart that describes this so i know what my class would be with my new mods?

2.5in Flex
2.5 trubendz exhaust with magnaflow muffeler.
Cold Air Intake.
Tune From Hypnotic.
17x7.5 Steeda Eurostars/ with BFgoodrich Sport Tires.
UDP from CFM
ANd soon to have a 65mm TB and Y2K intake, After that some SVT brakes.
I know driving time is impoprtant for times, but I enjoy working on my car so I wanted to know where it could go legally. Also I like SVT a lot so if it makes since to just buy one I would save up and get one. Im starting this year and geting serious next year.

I may be buying a set of cams from a guy on here. I cant leave the little beast alone. I love working on it. I guess maybe I should just build the car for me and see what I need after that.
