Since it allows tube frame construction, then I can't believe that you could not seam weld the chassis.

It is a production based class and the rules state "IF IT DOESN'T SAY IT HERE, IT MEANS YOU CAN'T DO IT." I take that to mean...stock motor, intake, exhaust manifold, gear box, differential, ECU - everything in the drive train is stock. I found a reference for a Spec Miata that crosses over from SCCA to MP4B so that is a clue as to how it works.

Shy that - call the Sanctioning body?

I haven't - I just have racing friends that live in FL that know of the series. Go to an event and talk to the drivers in the class, look at their cars, ask questions about prep levels...you would be surprised how friendly racers can be!

I didn't have a clue what you were talking about, so I looked it up.

FARA
GENERAL RULES

“MP” Classes are defined as Modified Production. All vehicles must appear stock, however
bodies can include Fiberglass, Kevlar, or Carbon Fiber.

Racing Fuel Only (NO NITROUS OXIDE).
Frame can be tubular or semi-tubular.
Car and engine must be from the same manufacture.
Engine can be mounted in any position (front, mid or rear).
Car must contain a roll-cage.
Car must include a fire extinguisher.

MP-4B-Cars with engine up to 1.6 liters, normally aspirated, Miata 1.8 liters (SCCA legal size restricted plate required, no headers no intake). Honda1.6 liters V-Tech and non V-Tech single overhead cam, 1.6 liters twin cam non V-Tech, no headers no intake. VW 1.8 liters (8 valves factory compression) Rabbit 1.6 liters normally aspirated. Toyota MR2 – 1.8 engine, stock intake, no header.

Apart from the fact that Honda don't make a V-Tech engine (standard spelling gripe), I don't see the issue. If you can't work with that, then don't try to rush into early participation.

Or why not simply fit a roll cage and extinguisher and join in for a short while? You won't win anything, but I'm sure you'll learn a lot.
