    If you have 200 tread wear (or higher) tires then one of the CAM classes should work.

    SCCA has three classes for these types of cars – CAM C, CAM T and CAM S.

    CAM-C: With the “C" standing for Contemporary, this class sees car and truck body styles from 1990-on, plus CAM-T class cars. (Minimum weight w/o driver is 3250 lbs.)
    CAM-T: In this case, the “T” stands for Traditional, and this class is for car and truck body styles originating from 1954-89. (Minimum weight w/o driver is 2950 lbs.)
    CAM-S: The “S” stands for Sports and this class is where sports cars, sedans/coupes, and trucks with seating for 2 or more adults. (Minimum weight for 1984+ Corvettes and Vipers is 2900 lbs. Minimum weight for all other cars is 2500 lbs.)

    Mike has it. 200 and up treadwear and >minimum weight would get you in CAM-S otherwise you'd go to XP or E-Mod.

    The CAM (Classic American Muscle) classes have become very popular in my regions. I really like the concept; it's kind of a run whatcha' brung game that makes a bunch of good noise with big V-8s and lots of camaraderie among the competitors. I've thought about changing tires and moving over from X Prepared to CAM-S but I'd still be about 300# under weight. One of my friends with a Backdraft made the move from XP last year and said "It's not like they weigh us at events"---yeah, true, but I'd know I'm not really legal and don't play that way...

    Let us know how it goes Erik!

    I have a feeling that your coupe is over 2500 lbs so you should be good to go in CAM-S. Like Jeff said CAM is turning out to be a fun class.

    I have been using 2450# as the CAM-S class minimum. I just come in over that guideline with a weight of 2455#. Was the weight increased to 2500?

    Like above, I just want to be sure I'm legally classed.

    They will most likely allow it in CAM-S for local events, but if you look at the actual rules - only the roadster is legal. The coupe was never technically a production car and is not listed for CAM. The coupe is listed along with the roadster in XP. Unless you are running any of the National Tour or ProSolo events you likely won't get questioned in CAM-S.

    I inquired directly with the SCCA before ordering and went with the roadster (due next month) just to avoid any issues. I think CAM-S would be a great home for it and hope they change the rules in the future so I can build one.

    CAM-S went up to 2500lb minimum for 2018.

    Additional 150lb penalty if using Lexan windshield.

    When adding weight, generally you try to keep it as low and as centered as possible. One thing to consider when doing this is that you may end up wanting to add it a little more to the passenger side to balance out your weight in the drivers seat. In lightweight cars, the driver's weight can be felt more and have a larger impact on the balance. Maybe you already have it corner balanced with weight in the drivers seat, so do keep your setup in mind.
