    Are you going to run Autocross or Wheel to Wheel? It appears that your classes are Wheel to Wheel.

      I am thinking whoever suggested those is not familiar with Midwestern Council's classes. We do not have T classes. Plus, I think the engine mods and rear wing would eliminate you from those anyway as T classes are basically Showroom Stock classes in other organizations. We do have a Showroom Stock GT (SSGT) class, but I believe the engine mods and wing make the car illegal for that class.

      ST1/2 would not work either as it is for small displacement engines and no V8's. That may change, but that is how it is right now.

      Super Production (SP) is the class you'll fit in with no trouble. The engine mods sound about right for ITGT (Improved Touring GT), but IT does not allow aftermarket wings. If you unbolt the wing you could try ITGT. It runs in the same group as SP, so I'd just keep the wing on and run SP.

        T1 & 2 are scca national classes and ST are NASA.

        MC has UNR which allows anything that has gcr compliant safety equipment. MC will also work with you to fit into something.

          Todd Zimmer will run SP on occasion with council. His car sounds very similar to yours and your modifications. Its a fun group and lately has been seeing some resurgence.

          Todd's car is in this video, he had a failure in the first half of the race.
