Does the Fire Suppression system for club racing with SCCA/NASA need to be SFI cetified?

Got off my ass and read the GCR 9.3.23 pg 70 on board systems not required for Spec Miata. So does not have to be SFI, since it is not required. Safecraft has a model LT5aaa, that is not SFI certified, but is a great system.

What is the agent used in the system?
If memory serves, the SFI standing only applies to the agent. Halon should not be available anymore, FE36 and other have replaced it.

I also heard that some systems in the last couple years with AFFF had valve discharge problems (corrosion). not necessarily with safecraft units.

For a Spec Miata, use the SFI agent, trust me, you will want to breath.

Tom Turner at ESS sells a great product. He is here in NorCal but I doubt shipping would be an issue.

Putting a system in each car this off season. All the cool kids are doing it.

PM for his number if you'd like.
