So the closest I came to selling the Black Beast was a scammer on craigslist. It's still in the garage taking up space but I've started thinking: the car is paid for, and I've wanted to go road racing forever.

Enter the Improved Touring category, an email to SCCA, and the thinking that perhaps I could build it into a race car. As of right now, the XD isn't classified, but I'm figuring it will fall into ITB. I don't think we can hang with the Neons in ITA.

Improved Touring gives me a lot of leeway as to things to make the car handle better. I can install coilovers and put bigger bars on front and rear. I can run 225s, if I'm reading the rules right.

Hoping I can make this happen.

As far as your list I can only verify the independent multilink rear and fuel cut off rev limiter. Getting all that tech info will be a daunting task.
