May I gut my Miata (as in no carpets, door panels, ancillary components) and still compete in in STS. If so I need to get to work? Any input is welcomed.

No.
Is this a trick question?

No really, no tricks. I've been under the impression that "Street" implied full street equipment. After reading through the SCCA Solo rules I did not find anything definitive that applied to STS. "Street Categories" and "Prepared Class" are pretty explicate about what you can or cannot remove.
Thanks,
John

SCCA, (like most sanctioning bodies), will only allow us to do what they say we can. In other words, (from a conversation I had years ago), "Unless they say you can, you can't". I believe we can thank the late, great Smokey Yunick for that.

John, the ST classes fall back to the Street rules. As Bill says the only mods allowed are the ones specifically noted in the ST rules (and the Street rules).

NO interior trim may be removed in STS as far as I know. It is not mentioned as being allowable, else it WOULD be mentioned.

No interior trim can be removed in STS (or any ST class). However, you can replace the seats with much lighter seats. I believe there is a minimum weight. It is in the ST rules.
