After reading through your posts, it seems like currently the only thing that is holding you back from running in STF is your lack of a cat. No cat and diff will both throw you right into FSP.
I'm also located in Orlando, but usually don't go to the SCCA run events (except when they're at the OCCC, or down in Sebring).
Martin Sports Car Club is another central florida auto-x club. Our next event is Sept. 9. I run in STF and wouldn't mind another person to run against.

Yeah well im running no cat at all lol.. so ill be in prepared. All i could find was the quaife
LSD which sells for 1000 minimum and then i was taking into account labor as ive never pulled a tranny, or pulled one apart. Thats something id probably hold off on until i need a clutch upgrade. So looks like ill be running FSP guys.

|fighing2succeed||A high flow cat is legal in STF as long as it's basically in the same position as the stock cat.|

and LSD bumps you to FSP
i cant remember what cat is legal in ST... classes, assuming you had a legal, the foci are in STF. a focus can never be in STX or STC, or STU. All the street tire classes are car specific. ie, a car only fits in one class.

the SVT was moved out of DSP and into FSP with the other Foci. I believe it was moved just before the 2012 season.
You're right, the Focus is in H-stock but there is not an HSP class, so it gets bumped to FSP.
Normally you take the Stock class (AS, BS, CS, DS, ES, FS, GS, and HS) and add a P to the end to get your SP class, but some cars are just whacky.
Edit: 2k for an LSD??? that seems way over priced.. is that with labor included?? A Torsen LSD should only cost 650-850.

also whats the difference between FSP and DSP? I really dont know what alot of the classes mean.. My car stock is HS, and i know the SP is street prepared but i dont know what the first letters are.. i cant find any specific info it...
Oh i see now.. SVT is DSP and Normal Focus is FSP.. FSP is a slower class then... Well theres noone that ran FSP today :/ Kinda sucks when theres no competition to gauge yourself against...

|darossi3||No cat at all, just resonator and muffler... I looked up the price for an LSD and itll be probably close to 2 grand total to put one in, i dont have that kind of cheese to spend haha.. But i could definitely feel my inside spinning alot... :/...|

I'm not really sure how the set up is on a regular zetec but on the SVT if i replace my cat with a high-flow cat it moves me into STX.
what did you replace your cat with? do you have a high-flow? ORP?
this means i could run a high-flow cat in STX and also add a LSD.
IMO the Focus can't hang with the BMW's or WRX's in STX.
The Focus goes to FSP rather than DSP.
Edit: they may not know or care, but you're cheating yourself by not following the rules.. believe it or not, the PAX factor and car classes are pretty darn accurate and help level the playing field.
