Anyone racing IS300 in SCCA/NASA this year?

Buddy of mine has done some sessions in a Speed World Challenge IS300, came away impressed.

Curious if anyone else is running a campaign with the IS300 in NASA or SCCA classes, and how competitive it is ( I would assume with it's double-wishbone setup, it can be VERY competitive).

I would love to find a shell and potentially build up a car this year. Anyone have any experience with the 3sge motor in this chassis as well? Or does the 2jzge and it's lower rev count allow it lower maintainance intervals as compared to the high strung 4-banger.

Cheers

Hmm...guess not. Wondering my more guys doing E36 3 series wouldn't consider this chassis/platform. Plethora of tuning options for the IS300's chassis, I would figure it'd be a shoe in to kick some butt.

I think with just an entire sway bar kit you can be competitive with the IS300 in SCCA. I honestly think the 3SGE Altezza's have so much more going for them. A couple of hundred pounds lighter and a 9k revving motor is a huge advantage.

It's a shame no one is even giving you feedback. I am curious to see also. I do have a few pictures of people Auto-Crossing with IS300s.
