Some issues found in tech at Sebring Super Tour and some reminders:
1) shocks were tested from 5 front running cars. 1 competitor was found to have non-compliant shocks with modified damping based on shock dyno testing, and was subsequently DQ'd. The other 4 cars were compliant.
REMINDER: shocks must be stock and no valving/internal changes are allowed. SCCA has a very reliable way to police this.
2) 2 non-front running competitors were found to be running NB's without restrictor plates and were DQ'd.
REMINDER: running a different class such as STL is not an excuse for not having the proper restrictor plate.
3) 2 competitors were found to have the wrong bump stop kits and were DQ'd.
REMINDER: You must have the approved Fatcat kit from Mazda in its entirety to be legal. No other kits are approved. Check your car if you don't know for certain, as a lot of the wrong kits were used in past builds by just about every builder.
4) SCCA used OBD2 scanners to gather baseline data for future checks on ECU's and wiring harnesses.
REMINDER: Wiring harness and ECU must remain stock. No changes, resistors, black boxes, reflashes, or any other modifications are allowed. OBD2 ports must be operational.
