Quick question about my car class:

It's a 98 M3 coupe, with supersprint cat-back exhaust and K&N drop-in filter. Those are the only mods. I'm also running street tires, Pilot Sports.

I originally thought it was Modified super sport. But upon re-reading the information, it looks like I should be in the prepared super sport. Am I right?

And if so, could I have my results from the 6/18 autox (which have not been posted as of yet) moved into that group...?

Thanks in advance.

Based on my reading of the rules, you are correct that your car is classed as prepared super sport. Since all you have, performance-wise, is a cat-back exhaust (the K&N panel filter is stock legal), you could even run R-comps and still be in prepared, rather than modified.

Sweet! That was gonna be my next question. Anyone have any recommendations for some r-comps?

Take the air intake out and run showroom then. <shrug>

Or slap on a set of r-comps and go clean house.

I am entirely too lazy to take the intake out before every event :p
I'm gone run my micheline pilots to the ground this year, I will either get race tires or a different car for racing all together next year. I am not too worried about it at this point.

Make sure you contact/email Pete so he can change your classing in the results.

I was saying if you are planning to run PSS (this year) but registered MSS by mistake, you should email Pete to make sure he changes your classing. Since he hasn't posted in this thread I'm guessing he hasn't seen it.

Gotcha... I am in MS but I am still somewhat confused in the difference between Modified and Prepared classes. R comps automatically place you in Prepared, but outside of that I am not sure I understand the difference. The more I read the more confused I get. :icon_eyes

Doh!

Now we will have to wait to post the results another day. I just finished them yesterday. I'll email the webmaster to not post since I have to make the change.

vrsixer- I'll reclass you. What is your name and what number where you?

Pete - Just post them as "preliminary results". This will allow people to look them over and see if there are any other problems.

The short version is that you can run a stock car and R-comps and be in prepared. If you run mods on your car but street tires you can run in prepared class.

If you do mods and R-comp tires, that you go into modified.

I too thought I was going to be the lower class grouped with standard E36's as opposed to Modifed SS. Bone stock M50 does not make modified hp levels.


If that is the case I will run r comps and I should stay where I'm at correct? This relates to July's event.
