2002 s2000. Mods are 4.56 gears, header back exhaust and springs. I do have 17 inch aftermarket rims, but stock staggered and stock tire sizes (for the 2004+ s2000)

Do you still have a cat (in the same relative position) & O2 sensor? What size tires?

I'm going to have to check on the 4.56 gears.

Well, it seems gear ratio is an expensive change, class-wise. That and the other modifications you've done bump you into Street Modified (SM, or in your case SMN).

How smooth is this course? Lowered car friendly? Cause my car is sitting pretty low.

I doubt you'll have any issues on course. Pungo is a 70 year old airfield, though the concrete is in pretty good shape for its age. It's not "smooth", but smooth enough for open wheeled race cars with less than 1" of ground clearance to run.

Here's some video I took earlier this year that shows the conditions of the course:

I think your biggest problem would be the unpaved road into the site, which is rather rough. If you can make it through that, you should be fine.

Ah ok. Is the entry road just gravel or is it pitted out and have ruts or something?

It's very potholed. I've never scraped bottom in my Boxster (and that's pretty much driving straight through it without any attempt to dodge), but if you're VERY low, you might have issues.
