I would love to run it but the rules on what you can have are so damned neutered (so few accepted mods) and strict (only this part from that vendor) that I couldn't come even remotely close to coming underneath the bar at this point.

I plan on running in NASA next year but it will be PTB not SF.

Great write-up though!

I wish I had money to build a dedicated SF car. But I much rather have fun modifying my car to my own image, and competing in other competitions that allow it.

Now if I only had about $13,000 cash to get started... and lived on the coast.

You can run in the PT series. Same track, same day, different cars.

NASA has a Spec Focus class for Rally as well. But I think the only engine they allow for Rally is the Zetec.
