Correct on the extinguishers. Electrical tires require a C rated extinguisher to be most effective, and B for gasses. Many extinguishers for general duty are rated ABC for all types of fires. It wouldn't surprise me if the clubs extinguishers were already ABC rated. It is certainly something to consider in car as well. 

I would have guessed that there was more provisions for electric cars in the SCCA by now.   :-[

Formula V does not qualify as EM car.

I was just thinking as a base for the electric car. I've seen some pretty crazy contraptions autocross out of the states.

Good luck! Enjoy the build. Looking forward to seeing you compete down the road.
For once a seriously modified vehicle, not worried about sound limits.

Well I'm just shopping the idea now.  I have a friend with connections into the formula Vee game ( I know next to nothing of these cars though),  and I'm shopping the idea of using a chassis from there as well. 

It will all come down to the founder of Roots2Stem and if it's a project he'd like to take on.

Hi All.

As some of you know,  I volunteer/Mentor at . Its a program to inspire and empower future scientists, technologists and engineers through building and creating. 

I shopped an idea to the founder about a project involving the kids to convert a cool car ( I want to do a vintage Beetle,  but he likes the looks of Fiat x19's), into an electric Auto-x'er.  This would be a larger project for the shop,  and I think a great opportunity for the older kids that are getting into cars,  to not only learn and build,  but also get into racing competitively and safely.

My questions pertain to the classing of such cars (likely an A-mod),  but moreover the eligibility of competing with club.  Are electric cars allowed firstly,  and the rest can start falling into place.

OK,  I know it's a dumb question,  but are the "T"'s just a listing of who would place in class,  and the number of "T"'s is dependent on the entrants in class?

I know there are a couple 135's that are racing now,  and may want the advantages these harnesses give in control,  and the ability to make them disappear in under two minutes!

I'm flexible on price too!

Used for 1 season. Schroth Quick Fit Harnesses in Black. This is for the pair. Both front seats. Price is OBO.

The Quick Fit Harness from Schroth is an excellent harness solution for people who have dual duty cars (track and street). Not many of us have the means to support a full time track vehicle as well as a street car, and still more of us like driving track-prepared cars on the street. The ultimate harness solution includes fixed-back Kevlar seats, a gazillion point welded roll-cage and a HANS device. None of us are going to (nor do we recommend) do this in our street cars.

What's the next best thing? The Schroth Quick Fit Harness. It anchors to factory points, which means you don't have to worry about it ripping out of the sheet metal. The factory points are load tested to withstand a 3,000-pound force for 6 seconds. It has ASM technology that keeps the lap belt low and your rear end firmly planted in the seat. You don't want the lap belt riding up and squeezing your stomach and intestines. A Schroth belt is designed not to.

The Quick Fit Belts also take advantage of the factory seat belt pre-tensioner, a device that tightens the belt 1-2 inches in the event of an accident. The Airbags will deploy as the engineers of the system intended for someone buckled in. With any other harness, the car wouldn't detect that someone was buckled in, so the airbags would deploy faster and harder.

They also come completely out of the car, giving you full use of your street car for carrying people or cargo. That is what it's for, isn't it? If you have any questions regarding a harness solution for you, please contact us. But if you have an E36, E46 or E39, You need to look at this belt. You're sure to see just how excellent it is.

- 4 Point Removable Harness System
- Attaches to Factory Seat Belt Receptacles
- Simple Install
- ASM Anti SubMarining Technology
- FMVSS 209 Approved

Models Supported:
2008+ BMW E82 1-Series & 1M
1995-1999 BMW E36 M3
1999-2006 BMW E46 3-Series & M3
2006-2013 BMW E90/E92 3-Series & M3
