Default SCCA Solo 2 classifications for modified WRX STI

Since owning my 2017 WRX STI i'm getting involved in autocrossing again. I used to autocross a Honda S2000 many years ago. Anyway, I'm having trouble figuring out the car classiciations for a modded STI even though I've been pouring over the . I haven't done much yet but looking to make some upgrades soon.

Is the only move I can make from DS to STU, or can I go from DS to DSP to DM to DP, and then later to STU if I wanted?

Reach out to your local group you raced with. They would know any updated/new rules on classification & I'm sure they would be happy to help.

your Street Classsing can branch off one of two ways.
Street touring (STU for you) Is a midway grouping for more moderate enthusia's but if you dont class for Street Touring, then your jump would be from DS to DSP to DM then DP.

with DP being like 315 Hoosiers with carbon fiber bits and removing every ounce of weight you dont need.

I love the street touring classes cause its offers a decent width of mods without going stupid overboard and it keeps the car street legal and fun to drive everyday. when you start going DSP things get more "track" ready then street friendly

What are your mods?

I haven't kept up with SP, P, and M rules, but am up on DS, STU, SM, XSA where an STI could play.

This. You need to list Every. Single. Thing. You. Have. Changed.

Too many people say things like "Oh, I didn't mention that I have a carbon fiber hood? Why can't I run in STU?" or "Yeah I have a SM car, that's why I removed all the sound dampening tar from trunk."

If you want advice on what class you can run this is the perfect advice.

For the STI wouldn't that be DS -> STU -> ASP (or is it BSP?) -> SM -> XP

Or XSB (now XB) if you don't car about national events and just want to run.
