Iíve been looking at buying an Elise, and Iíve been autocrossing for around 12 years. I have my eyes on a car, but it falls into a strange lack of classing.
Any help classing a car like this, is appreciated. This includes mods I may need to do to make it fit into a class. Iíd like to know the differences between the internals of a 2007 and a 2008 as cloning a 2008 could make me eligible for SS classing. (?)
Firstly, the car. It's a 2007 Elise with sport and touring packages. It has a factory supercharger on it, but it was not installed at the factory. There is my main mod concern with the car. The only other mod is a catback exhaust.
I've been using this link with the 2018 rules and Lotus class moves.
SS = Elise SC (2008-11)
AS = Elise (non-SC) (2005-11)
SSR = Elise (non-SC) (2005-11) (see Appendix
SSP = Elise, Exige, & Exige S (2005-11) (*This is my guess, although I'm unclear is the addition of a SC is not allowed*)
SSM = Excluded ē Lotus (all except Elise, Exige, & Esprit)
FP = Elise & Exige (normally-aspirated) (1996-2010)
I am not focusing my search on a specific model for classing, but rather am looking at a specific car I like, and casually wondering what experience others may have with classing similar cars.
