    I know in SCCA club racing you can be disqualified and loose points if you are caught cheating in a post race inspection. I'm assuming the same or similar can happen in Solo II.

    At most autocross events, their not going to check your class and then try to see if your car is within the rules of it. Obvious things like 19 inch wheels will get noticed. Unless your beating really fast drivers at high level events, just try to pick the class that you think you belong in. Chances are, since your driving a contour, your not going to be competitive in whatever class your in. Don't worry about beating as many people that can. Just have fun. The contour is a fun car to drive at an autocross. I've beaten many faster cars in raw time. Unfortunatly my car is in one of the mod classes, so my pax times aren't that fast. I don't care though. It's a lot of fun to drive fast.

    Agreed. As long as a Mini Cooper is in GStock the Contour cant be competitive in that class. I'm still mad they havent bumped it out of there yet.

    Hey SS where do you live? If it's close enough I'd love to come and discuss this racing with you. Looked like a lot of fun.

    Can you send me what's in the car too?

    thanks

    I haven't heard back from him...
    It's unfortunate that the few people who actually have something substantial to contribute in the area of motorsport with this car aren't very involved in the forum.
