I'll look into that.^^

I was looking at the scca saftey rules and I think I'd have to get new tires. As mine have sidewall cracks because their somewhat old and sat for a little.

How strict are their inspections?

If you don't have a helmet, it isn't a problem, they have a few loaners.

As for their inspections, it depends on who's doing it. They aren't too strict. It a group of old timers who have been around for forever, very friendly, and they are pretty laid back. Depending on what it is, they'll let it slide this time around, just as long as you have it fixed by the next month.

Just have all of your bases covered in terms of their guide lines.

-Have plenty of brake fluid
-a battery tie down and covers over the terminals
-no cords showing
-all your crap that can move, out of the interior and trunk
-don't leave a mess (the Navy will find you)

Does it matter if you run coolant or water wetter ( or whatever that stuff is called) I know at that drift event they preferred people to run wetter.
