    This will get you into the local auto-x chapters. Keep in mind what LawnMan said; you can also race with the BMW car clubs as well.

    The only mods I have are sub frame connectors , lid, and air filter. I want to do a cam swap sometime. The course was set up for a shorter car. The Mustangs are that and lighter than my car . It did not matter , they felt the power of the T/A !

    The best mod out there are R compound tires, Kuhmo 710's or Hoosier A6's
    Then shocls and springs, swaybars, adjustable panhard bar. It also depends on what class you want to run.
    Another great mod is lots of seat time.

    yeah, seat time is probably one of the best. I have some practice is going straight, but I am not very good at drifting or some of the crazy turns. what kind of classes do they have? I have free ram air, slp loudmouth exhuast, diablo tune, and a strut tower brace on a ws6

    Lose the STB and the ram air and you could run Fstock, unless you have a WS6, then you would be A stock. Next is the Street Prepared class. Check out the rules at www.scca.com

    Check your local autocross chapter for region-specific rules as well. I was racing in Denver with the Rocky Mountain division and they had a local car class (AT) which are stock vehicles with street tires indexed against each other. The class was made up of everything from my T/A to corvettes and even a couple of lotuses...RX-8's as well.

    The stock class (A stock for the WS-6 and F stock for non WS-6) allows for some mods. You can change one, but not both, sway bars; cat back, shocks, and even get the R compound race tires.

    The next class (E street prepared) allows for more suspension mods, but does not allow sub-frame connectors.

    Next would be Street Modified. This class is very open as far as suspension mods, engine mods and tire size. Some removal of interior stuff is allowed here, but very few. Anything drastic would put you into a Prepared Class and there is a minimum weight that must be adhered to as well.

    Most local racers won't care too much if you have some mod that might not be legal in that class...UNLESS you start winning. But if you decide to run in the Pro Solo's or a national level event, you must adhere to all classing rules or you will be protested and have to forfeit any place or trophy you might have won.

    Great video! If you want to see a tight course you should come over here and run on a Miata course.
    What are your mods and what exhaust are you running?

    yeah, I could see turn radius being an issue. bad ass run though I would have to walk the course first so I would not get turned around.
