    If you're hooked on SCCA track events, there aren't many things you can do to the motor... Like swapping. No class to compete in.

    Note his stock manifolds and lack of strut tower bar. that's so he can class with the track group. A Hybridded car can't even get out on the track.

    -> Steve

    Well.. For the most part. What are the SCCA engine swap classes ?

    do they not have open or un-restricted classes in the track events????

    cause they have allowances for all of that in the different classes of SoloII

    A swapped motor into a Honda (or any other make/model) puts you in SCCA's Prepared class or SM class for auto-x. If you want to race wheel-to-wheel then you'll be in their Production class.

    As for not being competetive, that's utter BS. Here is a list of the last 30 years winners in SCCA E-Prepared:

    E Prepared:
    2004 Chris Dorsey Colorado Springs, CO Honda CRX
    2003 John Thomas Tampa, FL Honda Civic

    2000 John Thomas Tampa, FL Honda Civic
    1999 John Thomas Tampa, FL Honda Civic
    1998 John Thomas Meridian, MS Honda Civic
    1997 John Thomas Meridian, MS Honda Civic
    1996 John Thomas Meridian, MS Honda Civic
    1995 John Thomas Meridian, MS Honda Civic
    1994 John Thomas Memphis, TN Honda Civic

    3 guys ?

    SoloII definately has classes for swapped cars. But wheel-wheel road racing is pretty specific about what's out there.

    'til someone builds a better car, yeah.

    John Thomas' Civic wasn't ready & didn't compete in this year's Nationals. He was in a borrowed 260Z trying to retain the longest winning streak in SCCA National's history.
