Default AutoX classification Help

Iím looking for some help from the group to determine AutoX Classification. Also what I can remove or change to better help out.

I have had the car for a few years and have been messing around with it for a while changing stuff etc. I have wanted to get into SoloX and RallyX since I bought the car I just have not had the time. But I decided to make the time and get into it this season. I am going to sign up for the Evolution School when it comes to St. Louis this spring, and will work on seat time from there.

I have been looking at the rule book and Iím guessing I am in SM class as of right now. Thatís why Iím trying to see where I can adjust to maybe lower classes to start out.

The Car is an 02 WRX with the following mods:

FMIC (Not on yet still have an STI TMIC w/ STI Scoop)
3in Cat less Turbo back exhaust
STI Pinks Inj.
Walbro Pump
COBB Tuner (Switching over to OpenECU)
Snorkel Delete
Front and Rear Strut Tower Braces (Crappy EBAY ones, changing over to TEIN or something else)
TEIN Flex Coilovers
Short Shifter
Wingless Trunk, debagged etc. (Thought this made a difference in one class)
Stock 16in Rim w/ 245 55 Kumho ASXís (Need some good tires before starting)
Lower H-Brace
ACT Clutch and Lightweight Flywheel (Might go back to stock Flywheel soon)
No Weight Reduction inside the car

Any questions that might help give a better answer please let me know.

Thanks for any help or insight, itís all useful.

The VF 34 turbo puts you firmly in SM. Might have to pull the H brace too depending on the style to keep you out of Prepared.. If you went back to the stock turbo I think you could bump down to _SP without the brace.. Taking more off I think you would have to pull the flywheel, injectors, FMIC (Not on yet), and go back to stock boost to run ST_.

Whatever class you wind up in have fun.

The H brace puts you in a prepared category. Take that off and you will be in SM. Either way, you need some sticky/wide tires to be competitive in those classes.

Found that out yesterday ( 4th out of 4) but .600sec to third and 1.2sec to 2dn place and those were 2 Mustangs and a Camaro SS all with sticky tires. Would I have tackled better the tight hairpin, I would have been happier. Ohh, I'm in ESP
