Possible Classification Guidelines....

blog Sunday, September 24, 2006 @ 5:36 PM


STOCK Classification

* NOTE: Any Stock Production Mustang with a Supercharger is automatically in the Lightly Modified category. Mach 1’s are stock from the showroom floor.

 * NOTE 2: Any one or two of the Lightly Modified items will not upgrade the car’s classification.

 *  NOTE 3: Stock Cobras with Superchargers go into the Heavily Modified category.

 * Stock Production Mustang – excluding Cobra’s w/Superchargers

  •  New or updated Badges or Lettering (rear area) 
  •  Cold Air Kits – w/standard throttlebody & fuel injectors
  •  Custom Seats 
  •  Upgraded Stereo and Speakers
  •  Stock type spoiler. (Exam: Fox body convertible adding new decklid & spoiler – getting rid of the stock luggage rack on a fox convertible would be modified) 
  •  Adding stock mass air (87/88 Mustangs have speed density)
  •  Headers 
  •  Smog Pump Removal
  •  AC Unit Removal 
  •  Aftermarket Wheels & Tires
  •  Aftermarket shocks and springs. 
  •  Replacing Headlights and Taillights with stock type units (old units fogged over, cracked or broken) Includes the stock replacements with clear sides.
  •  Headlight, Fog & Taillight Covers 
  •  Gas Cap/Fuel Area Bling
  •  Aftermarket Radiators 
  •  Window Tint
  •  5 lug conversion – Fox body 4 lug. 
  •  Adding Stripes to the stock paint job.
  •  Strut Tower Brace 
  •  Sub-Frame Connectors 
  •  K&N Air Filters

  • LIGHTLY MODIFIED  Classification

     Three or more of these items. Lightly Modified does not include any real power adders to the Mustang- Engine Remains Stock This category is mostly appearance mods. (MOSTLY BLING)

     Upgrading Brakes

    •  Upgraded Suspension 
    •  Body Kit – air dam, side skirts, rear valance
    •  Aftermarket Hood 
    •  Aftermarket Spoiler
    •  Aftermarket Stereo upgrade to include, subs, amps, dvd players, etc. 
    •  Aftermarket Headlights
    •  Aftermarket Taillights – clear, smoked, etc. 
    •  Custom Interior incl/ Billet & Chrome interior pieces
    •  Custom Paint. 
    •  Nitros
    •  Custom Engine Bling, Powdercoating of stock parts, Aftermarket Valve Covers, Polished parts ect. – Engine guts remain mostly stock… 
    •  Electric Radiator Fan set-up
    •  Custom Trunk Area 
    •  Aftermarket Suspension Work
    •  Lambo Doors 
    •  Side Exhaust
    •  Rear Gears Upgrade 
    •  SN95 Honeycomb Panels
    •  Hood Pins 
    •  Sunroof

    MODERATELY MODIFIED Classification

     Moderately includes cars with engine modifications and could include some or all of the lightly modified items. Any Roush, Saleen or Steeda w/manifold & intake upgrade but minus Supercharger will be listed as Moderate. Cars with just the moderate items will also fall into this category. (MOSTLY ENGINE – going for horsepower)  

    • Custom Intake & Manifold
    •  Aftermarket Mass Air upgrade 70MM or higher w/fuel injectors over 19lb.
    •  Could include having many or all of the Lightly Modified items  

     HEAVILY MODIFIED Classification

    Any Mustang V6 or V8 that has a Supercharger or Turbo falls into this category and includes Mustangs with heavily modified engines built for horsepower.
    • Supercharger or Turbo  
    • Serious Engine Mods (cam, heads, etc)  


    CUSTOM Classification

     Show Vehicles, generally NOT daily drivers

    •  Custom Paint  
    • Custom Interior
    • Custom Stereo System
    •  Custom Engine Bay  
    •  Aftermarket Manifold/Intake, injectors, mass air, etc.
    •  Could Include Custom Suspension Work
    • Could have a Supercharger or Turbo added.

    As I said, this is a general idea to make the classificaitons more cut and dry. The majority of the cars will fall between Stock, light, and moderate.  Anyone elses thoughts?

    wow tim you put alot into that. sounds good

    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 8:00 PM


    Agree with you Tim...


    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 8:23 PM

    i think that pretty much covers it!! nice work!

    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 8:43 PM

    put it this way...if you had a stock car..woudl it be fair to go up against another stang with the mods I picked out?

    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 9:23 PM


    i dont agree with a stock supercharged cobra going into heavily modified.  It technically is a stock production car.  There is no reason for a stock cobra to have to compete with a real heavily modded car JUST because they come stock with a supercharger.

    Perhaps there should be specialty categories, like cobras, saleens, roush etc.

    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 9:28 PM

    i thinks girzgt has a point too...if you put a s/c or turbo on the car it should go heavily or custom depending on the set up(amount of boost etc)..otherwise stock is stock unless someone gets a special class for them too.

    Sep 24th, 2006 @ 9:43 PM

    i am yet to meet a mustang ower with a 100% stock car lol...didnt know there was such a thing lol

    I like it crimson. But if you have a power adder and nothing else I think heavily modified might be a little much. I think if you have a power adder and nothing else moderatly modified would be a good spot to start. A power adder car could compete with a car with 3 or more bling mods in my opinion. Then if you have a power adder plus three or more bling mods from the lightly or moderatly modified list I then think they could go into the heavily modified class. As far as the Custom class goes I would leave it as you have it.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 6:17 PM


    why cant you list a cobra as stock..technically thats 100% right...how do you classify an svo mustang then??

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 7:16 PM


    maybe each "mod" can be assigned a number of points

    add the total points of the car

    set ranges of points for each category stock is 0-10 points lightly is 11-25 points etc etc

    if anyone thinks that would work?  then a score card for that car can be viewed and easily updated when someone adds a mod?  sure; it will be allot of work to assign point values to every mod...but it could accomplish what tim/crimson is trying to accomplish.

    ...could numbers and math maybe take out the guesswork and opinions of classification?

    comments anyone?

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 7:18 PM


    oh yeah...and if later we discovered the point system was not working well (example  = blowers) we could change the value of that mod and then everyone would automatically be re-calualted and re-classififed by the computer?

    does anyone get my idea?  or am I in dream land here?

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 7:19 PM

    ...again...this idea would involve TIME and TESTING to implement

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 7:32 PM

    I like the idea Nicole. It looks like some work up front but would make classification a no brainer. And like you said changes could be made across the board easily.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 9:09 PM

    i like the sound of the point system. yes as u said it would take alot of time and testing to assign points correctly to each mod. but once we got it up it would work great.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:04 PM

    lol i really dont care as long as it works cause right now it aint working.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:04 PM

    lol i really dont care as long as it works cause right now it aint working.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:31 PM

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:32 PM


    class 1 for me two



    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:41 PM


    nicoles idea is pretty good,sounds like a lot of work,crimson is right.what if everyone had one mod list(they fill out themselves) to check off.then submit it to the management of the site.so that the judges dont have to re-do everone on the site.

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:47 PM

    riddick told me to tell everyone he is class 2...not ricey...just gay

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:48 PM

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:55 PM

    so thats 2 not gay...and 1 gay...you gonna keep track ylw??? or do you want me to?? 

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:56 PM


    sorry tim, I was trying to help your cause...

    forget it

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:57 PM

    why is that????

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 10:59 PM

    its just getting a little too serious...were just trying to lighten the mood before everyone gets too bent out of shape!we are here to have some fun

    Sep 25th, 2006 @ 11:01 PM

     A blower is not heavily modified. sorry. My car is not heavily modified.

    Sep 26th, 2006 @ 12:03 AM


    The re-classification form is up...

    Go here to get classified

    Sep 26th, 2006 @ 7:43 PM

    cool ill like to be reclassified......
    thanks for the link J...

    Sep 27th, 2006 @ 8:09 AM


    Then we have people who will be like.. yeah Im gonna get that mod next year so lets check off the box.. blower.. oh i want one of those.. lol.

    The current system will work if the people who classify have half a brain

    Sep 27th, 2006 @ 6:31 PM

    I thought about that after I submitted the comment, it also could go the other way.  Blower? What blower? Its an air powered altenator, I swear. How about an IQ test for the classifiers? j/k

    Oct 1st, 2006 @ 2:07 PM

    ok i have been re classified but it didnt change me in my team. dont know if it is a glitch or what. just thought i would bring it to attention.


    Fuel your mustang love.
