Locally, most everyone uses a modified version of the SCCA General Competition rules- but the easiest way to find out what's current is to go to the track. No point in building a car to a spec that noone races...

But of course, the cheapest way to go racing is always to buy someone else's car. No that any of us DO that, but we always admit, after we're done, that it WOULD have been cheaper...

It isn't very streetable with the cam it has, so I'm saving up for a new car. The only thing I think it needs is a roll cage and big brakes.

Bmwcca and scca racing spec.. please don't go cheap on the roll cage... there's a big difference between a bolt in and a custom welded in cage... secure race seats and properly mounted and braced fuel cells are important... and big mother lovin brakes.... steering.. suspension... then HP... party on

I know a guy that used to install cages that are welden in so thats probably were I'll get mine from. I want one thats is welded to the rear shock towers and somewhere in the front. I need to look at some 02 with cages so I can get a better idea of what I want. If you have any pics email them to me.

Thanks,

Leif

P.S. I have the steering suspension and HP.

Get a set of rules and determine what class you can afford to race. Then build the car to that set of rules. I race in SCCA F production. Big brakes are limited to stock TII. Don't do modifications until you know what is legal. G

the previous owner did mine at Frey racing- but didn't do a very good job with the mouting plates, as they are too small- but I have to check to see if they fall short of any regulations.

If you goto www.grand-am.com and check for the current GTS points leader. He's it. He also built my fathers last grand am car and is an expert chassis builder. I'll give props to anyone that can out qualify the daytona prototypes at daytona with a 1:49 laptime... thats haulin ass.

...Then go to Roger Hamlin (Hamlin Fabrication, 707 935-6825) at Infineon Raceway (Sears Point). Roger is an absolute genius and was crew chief to both Brian Redman and Bobby Rahal at different times in his carreer. He is also a very fair and nice guy. He built the cage in my car and it is a real work of art, tying into the firewall, shock towers, A & B pillars, rockers, etc. It also features a custom crossbar hidden behind the dash...incredible work!
