I'm thinking of joining the SCCA this year and was wondering if there are any current members?

Yeah I completed the 2006 solo II SCCA season with my pontiac. This year will be completed in my 2007 STi. Its a lot of fun, you can be fast without having a fast car. Some of the top dogs were driving cars my slowmo Vibe could beat in the 1/4 lol. Smooth is fast.

Its been ordered

Yeah... she complains about how much this will cost. But I remember what we had to go through to get her the LGT. Plus I know deep down she'll want to drive it and be begging me for the keys even though she only lets me drive the LGT when it needs something

but it should make SCCA events more fun. I hope I can beat my times last year with the new car.

you'd better beat your times in the new car! i hope i can beat MY times in my own car this year! otherwise that's just gonna suck!

and you never ask to drive the car. besides, once you get the car broken in, i'll want to take it for a day... or two.

neither did i, it sounds like u would be in SM or prepared, i belive were D Prepared but not sure,

the STS class im in has limits on tires, treadwear greater than 140, so thats the only reason i think u wouldnt be in that group.

Well, he's certainly NOT in H-stock. his car is NOT stock. and he's not (or doubtful) in SM. A lot of the rules have changed and classes with it, so not as familiar with what goes to what, however, i do know that any of the stock classes you must by STOCK. I'm in SM and have always been due to my ECM, suspension, uppipe, midpipe, etc. some of the guys with similar mods but not ECM are in ESX, so not sure the difference...
