|bringler26||Im am planning on buying dunlop z1 star specs next spring. Im not getting the torsen since i definitely dont want to be any higher than the st class. At least not at this point I would rather learn to drive before getting extreme into autocross. At some point my car will probably go to the extreme but that wont be for a few years. Im doing a clutch for sure and my neighbor works for luk so he can get me a good deal on a clutch package minus flywheel. I will be having the trans rebuilt due to a third gear grind. I thank everyone that is giving me clues as Im new into the sport.|

IMHO the best way to plan an autox project car is to decide the class you want to run in, read and re-read the rules for the class multiple times, and ask plenty of questions if you don't understand any particular provisions in the rules.
Also, always remember the Top Ten things that will improve the times of any autox car, in order of priority:
If you look through lots of autox-related forums and magazine articles, you may get the mistaken impression that minute details of suspension and engine setup are really important for good autox times. However, in many cases, these sorts of threads and articles are written by highly skilled drivers who already have great tires; in other words, they've already proverbially pruned the low-hanging fruit. They're after the last few tenths of a second.
Yes, what I'm trying to say is that you should buy the best tires (and widest wheels, class allowing) that you can afford. If this means forgetting the flywheel, then forget it.

|bringler26||wait just viewing classing rules and came up with a question would adding a torsen push me out of st and in stx class?|

That's why you get a 90's MR2 turbo if you want a mid engine car.
My brother has a 91 that's the N/A 2.2L but it's still a blast and pretty quick.
