As someone who plans to run SuperSport Modified this year and will benefit from not having to complete against . . . . .well, I can think of Neil Simon's M Coupe, I don't think this new class is needed.

As much as Neil might like competing in a class of one, I wonder who else has a car that will qualify. Hausmann? Oh yeah - Bud Scriber.

M3s already have Stock, Prepared, and Modified categories. Now if they run aftermarket cams or remove the back seat they have a fourth place to run? I hope there's enough "Unlimited" cars to make this class worthwhile.

I argued the number of cars issue at the meeting. They pointed out there are a several cars that would fall in that category and more appear to be showing up every season.

If you really want to compete against Neil, you can always upclass yourself. :wink:

It's in a locked thread posted by Pete Lem a few days ago:

This season we are adding 3 new classes. Unlimited, MINI and MINI modified. The purpose of the additional classes is to better support our members and hopefully allow a more level playing field within the classes. The definitions of the new classes are listed below.



Unlimited Class

This class is essentially SM (SCCA) cars. Basically it is an anything goes class. Enjoy.

FI, nitrous, non-stock internals (cams, trick heads, etc.)

* removal of rear seat, dash, instrumentation other than radio, sound deadening material in cockpit, any interior panels and devices (grab handles, lights, heater core, hvac hoses & piping, etc.)

* non-OEM (carbon fiber or fiberglass) body panels

* race (non-DOT-approved) tires


MINI classes are being added as a test for this season. They are contingent on MINI participation. If there are not enough cars who qualify for championship points MINIs will return to X and XR the following season.

I didn't say I WANTED to compete against Neil. I understand his car is pretty fast.

We will try to remember to adjust the rules next season so that you are in his class. Sorry about the confusion. :tongue:

The addition of a Super Mod class means changing the rules for the current/previous Mod class. When will this be done? People are going to need to know what seperates a Mod car from a Super Mod car.

So having cams automatically puts me in Unlimited?

Cool, so Bud and Neil can fight it out in a 2 car class...

Plus Austin, Hampton and Woody (just so he can compete with Neil)... I think we might be surprised how many cars fall in that class. Then again, I haven't gone through the registrations.

Ok, I'm the smartass around here, you should stop being one. More classes are fine with me, you're the one that has to do the extra work. I understand the idea behind it. When my car was out an about, it was an overdog for MSS, but there aren't that many out there. Cams and headwork aren't going to make any difference on a lot like Bowie, maybe a blower would though.

Hmmm... Interesting idea. Do you really think a leaf blower would be better than using a broom sweep the course?

Okay, back on topic.... Who do you think is going to win "Unlimited" this season?
