    I've never looked into Nats before, always just autoxed for fun, and usually in 2-3 different cars or classes in a season. What is the requirement to get to Nats? Do you just pay and show up? Or is there qualifying?

    You are supposed to attend a Divisional or National Tour event, however if you don't there is a $70 waiver (not sure on that price). However registration for the other events is usually $55 so its worth going to a Divisional/National Tour event if there is one near you.

    The total entry fee if you dont go to a divisional is $170. Subtract the $70 waiver if you do...No qualifying

    There is a 1250 car limit which has been either filled or gotten close the last few years. Other than that all you need is a car that conforms to the class rules(they are much more strict at nationals).

    Do they run FSAE cars in their own class or is it in AMod?

    A FSAE legal car is AMod legal, right? Of course, we can yank the restrictor though.

    FSAE has its own class now. I think that AMod has a weight minimum, not positive on that though.

    FSAE cars can run in AMod if they meet the rules of the year they were entered in an FSAE competition (restrictor must be in place).

    If you take the restrictor off, you must meet the other Amod rules (minimum wheelbase 72", minimum weight with driver 900lbs, if I recall correctly).

    At all events except Nationals, FSAE-legal cars run in AMod. At Nationals, they have a special FSAE class for FSAE cars only.

    The SCCA rulebook is online if you want to check these out, though there were some errors (kart rules snuck in) in the original document this year.

    D'oh! Well that doesn't mean I still can't yank the restrictor for some non-competition fun.

    And thats probably a good thing anyways, all the other cars there would have even more of an advantage w/o the restrictor over ours.

    If the planets align, I'd love to bring our car down to this.

    Some regions have an FSAE class at local autocrosses.

    The St. Louis area SCCA has an FSAE class that we use all the time. This past weekend, Washington University from St. Louis showed up as well.

    Basically, if you run your car at Nationals, it has to meet the same rules as competition.

    ...and Dr. Bob has been known to bring a restrictor gage.

    Unfortunately, I won't be one of the drivers for UMR this year at Nationals- I'll miss too much of the summer autocrossing while I'm away working. That makes two years in a row of missing Nationals for me.
