Class...:confused:
Probably just track days...for fun. Always wanted to be a real race car driver, but need A LOT more experience and probably someone to help/coach me. The only real "racing" I ever did was in a straight line, behind the wheel of a very powerful mustang.

There really isn't anything wrong with the car as it sits. Besides the fuel delivery issue and a leaky exhaust, but it cruises just fine. EDIT: and some shitty purple paint, lol. Reasons why the concern really wasn't examined any further. I just want something for fun, that may be a little different. Ya know?

Just curious, most sanctioning bodies wont recognize franken cars for anything other than "prototype" classes.

The SCCA ITB at Waterford Hills is a evenly matched competitive class. 2.3 Fox Mustangs are a great car to "learn" on. The 924(stock) runs ITA still, I think,(924S might be ITS), but can't compete with the Hondas

WHRRI will find a class to run almost anything. They follow the SCCA rule book..mostly, but are seperate. SCCA races on different weekends

Check out their drivers school.

Auto-X has a few classes for motor swapped cars provided its from the manufacturer of your car. i.e. a porsche swap into a porsche etc.

if you were doing like an LSX swap then its only 1 class lol

What a fricken fiasco yesterday, my pocket came un-zipped (or I forgot to zip it) and I lost the key to Courtneys e36 yesterday while snowboarding for her birthday, we called AAA to come unlock the car since she had a spare in her purse in the trunk. The key guy comes out, attempts to break into the car.....no luck, he can wedge it open and get the slim jim in but pulling up on the lock pins, pulling the door handles and hitting the lock button all do nothing. apparently the car disengages the lock mechanisms without the key in a lock. ok.....well we'll call a tow truck. Nope, none of the hillbilly shops in Cadillac will tow the car without the tow hook, conveniently located in a tool box in the trunk. call the nearest BMW dealership 1 hour away, nope they don't keep the keys on hand and have to overnight ship them from Germany, however you have to pre-pay for the key and provide photo ID and six different forms of verification that you own said BMW before they will even ORDER the g key from Germany. after this fiasco I'm making sure all our cars have a spare located off the car in some way shape or form.
so finally we decide we'll tow it to the dealership in GR so Kealan (Courtneys brother) and a buddy drove a truck/trailer up to caberfae with Kealans tow hook and we put it on trailer and drove to the dealership. today starts round 2 of the fiasco trying to get a new key cut which the BMW dealership doesn't want to do because BMW protocal requires a photo ID, proof of registration and a copy of the title........all of which (except title) are locked in the car......should be interesting.
