    I'd say Class 7: Unlimited mini or mid-size trucks/SUV.

    You can do lifts and such, but you must not change the wheelbase or increase the track width more than 78inches.

    I believe they restricted it to V-6 motors for this class recently.

    There are many different Baja races and organizations, you may want to narrow it down.

    Welcome to this forum! Don't forget to take a look at Explorer Forum license plate frames, and decals to show other competitors that you are part of the forum. You might even see other people with these things on their vehicles. You'll then have something in common, and make more friends.
