    Empty out your car, including floormats. Bring water, food, sunscreen. Have fun.

    No, only things that can fly around inside the car. No change, pends, pressure gauges, etc. Driver floormat must come out for the race, as it may get stuck under your pedals.

    Try to focus on knowing the course ahead of time, if they allow you to walk it first, do so.

    A lot of really good drivers have LOOK AHEAD in vinyl on their dash or steering wheel. It's really nerdy but it's true.

    I'm not sure that they would let you run as it is 'rollover prone.'

    Go ask at http://www.solo2.org/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi

    I need an exact list of mods. Sounds like your stuck in the most fun -- but most competitive class... STS. Same class I run with about 20 other people everyweekend.

    Runners include:

    Preludes
    Celica GTS
    Neon
    Integra GSR/LS (no R)
    Subaru 2.5RS/TS
    Ford Focus (incl SVT)
    Civics

    etc etc. Basically all economy cars w/o an LSD (unless AWD, then one is permitted, or if you have a VLSD) under 3 liters or under 2liter turbo.
