Proposal to allow the supercharged cars to play in Super Stock starting in 2009.
It should be noted that there is a discussion to revamp the stock classing system. All just rumors mostly for those not on the board, but what we have heard is that the classing is going to be revamped. Expect to see a new Uber Super Stock and then a class below it.
Does that change anything? I don't know. Would the NA Elise move? Maybe, but I have some doubts.
For 2009, what does this mean? If it passes, the 2009 SS winner should be an Elise SC (or maybe an Exige S).
Good for the SC or S owners, not so good for NA car owners.
Well... not really obsolete. You know you are overstating this a bit. For regional and local stuff, this will not make any difference. For national though, yeah... sorry. If it was me, and I was still running the 2005 in SCCA in SS, I would sell it and buy an Elise SC.Not in Stock classes. Take your N/A Elise and Exige cars to the track because they'll be obsolete in SS SCCA autox. Unless you write your letters....
I thought rule should come up to progress too. I guess not.The old rule I was told from MANY years ago, was enjoy stock class for 3-4 years max for any one car.

But until this is final we won't know right? There are still hopes for the uber SS class where some of these new cars go.
From what I've read the Exige S-240 gets 240hp, hence the name (mostly from a larger intake) and drops 40lbs over the Exige S.The 2009 Exige 240 is the same as the 2008 Exige S. The 2009 Exige S gets the same 220HP tuning as the 2009 Elise SC. That totally makes sense, right?
