Check your rulebook, but I think the high-flow cat puts you into STX (Street Touring Extreme). What's a Tom's Tune?

To all you noobs, here's an awesome at-a-glance classing chart:

Of course, the best thing to do is get a general idea and then ask a technical inspector for help BEFORE THE EVENT.

modified Volant intake, Steeda STS, HIA tune, and new tires once they get here...
I'll be running STS once they arrive.

March 12th - 5th of 9 in Novice by PAX, 59th of 82 in Raw
March 19th - 45 of 76 by raw, 37 of 76 by pax, 4th of 24 in novice by pax - would have placed 4th in STS by raw also...

Class: SM
Region: Rio Grande (

First race: Finished 3rd STS-Novice. I'm still just a weekend warrior. I'm not really there to compete. I'm just there to have a good time, hang out with good people, and see some pretty cool cars shred tires. My fiancee (wife in 4 weeks) drives my car also. Check out some picks in my gallery of her tri-podding the car.

Car: 2004 Focus SVT
Mods: KONI (front), KYB AGX (back), Kumho V700 225/45/17 on stock 04 wheels, K&N filter
Class: GS
Region: Oklahoma Region SCCA

2005: 2nd Place GS (only mod was KONI's for last half of season)
2006: 1st Place GS (so far)

I have run in 3 of the 4 events in OKC this year, two 1st place and one 3rd (LOTS of cones). I had trouble on my second event learning the limits of the V700's. Unlike street tires, they give no audible warning before breaking loose, and I was running my KYB's in back way too stiff and getting max oversteer. I have it under control now, just need to put the lessons I learned in EVO school to use on EVERY run. I messed up when I ordered my wheels for this year and they were out of spec in backspace so my V700's are on my stock SVT wheels and my "race" EXCEL F-1's are on my street tires. Ah well... looks good every day now :) Going to get Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2's for next year (I had them planned for this year but went with the cheaper EXEL's... doh!) GS class usually runs 4-5 competitors but only 1 other (MiniS) wears R-Comps and won the event where I went Cone Hunting. This year my best finish in PAX is 17th of 112 and 42 of 112 overall.
Never run out of traction, real estate, and ideas at the same moment.

WARNING!!! The surgeon general has announced that AUTOCROSS is more addicting than CRACK!!!
