Default Stupid Autox classification question.

I haven't followed the SCCA rules / classification in a few years.

Back in 1999/2000 when I had my 2.5 RS I knew the class for it.

Now I have a 100% stock 2001 Impreza L sedan, 2.2L with 5-speed tranny.

As the car sits currently am I still in "G-stock"?

If I add a 17mm rear sway bar does that put in into "STS", or something else?

If I upgrade the front brake calipers to RS style 2-pots calipers and rotors (not larger WRX rotors), and also do a rear disc brake conversion (from an RS also) what class does that put me in?

Thanks for the help. I dont' have time to search right now.

stock L would be H stock. rear sway would put you into STS. Brakes I'd have to look into more.. probably a prepared class like DSP/FSP.

H-Stock

its legal for STS, STX, DSP, SM... I recomend STS.

STX or SM (maybe DSP if there is an appropriate update/backdate)

I think those are all correct...

EDIT : No update/backdate in DSP as they (the L and the RS) are on different lines.

Not sure I understand this? Both cars are impreza's, just different trim package. Isn't that the same line?

Thanks for the help though. At least now I know I'm in H-stock if anyone asks. I won't do the rear bar anytime soon because I want to learn a bit more before modifying. The car has 17,500 miles so the brake upgrade is a ways away.

Nope, not the same line in the rule book meaning in the classification table for SP, if they were together and eleigible they'd be listed like:
DSP: Impeza 2.2L, 2.5

But they're listed something like this:
DSP: Impreza 2.2L
DSP: Impreza 2.5

1) HS
B) STS or higher
III) STX or SM

nope... it's not a "trim". Your reasoning would allow someone to drop anything off a WRX in to an RS, since hey they're both imprezas. Or ... M3 parts into a 325 since they're both 3 Series.

Ahh. I get it now. I'm not familar with the rule book in detail.

Thanks for the help guys. The events I run are usually only classed as:

1. Novice -street tires
2. Novice - race tires
3. Experienced - street tires
4. Experienced - race tires

but they sometimes ask for your SCCA class to do pax timing. It's not a big deal but I don't want to to give the wrong info and get someone upset that might know.
