eliaslincoln wrc fan is 100% correct with all that was posted.

I know one of the changes for all ST class's (ST STX STS STR STU) this years is there can be no addition of wings on a car. only stock wings or the subtraction of a wing. and a few bumper rules about cutting them certain ways. (i know some of the higher ups)

i personally think this rule should be the other way around, that you can add a wing but can't subtract what the car came with. (i just put a wrc wing on my car, crap.)

wrc_fan Yeah STS is not well subscribed, could be your region bumped cars, etc. A lot of early miata guys go to CSP, or back to ES (or CS depending on the year). CRX's become rarer each year too.

GodLovesUgly STS doesn't exist for our region, and I don't think I saw it at the pro solo we hosted.
All the "modded" miatas in our region had to go to STR. Those that added a turbo/supercharger had to go to SSM. Maybe our rules differ, I guess that's the great thing about autocross!

If you want to truly be competitive, stick to h-stock. IMHO

-CAI + Strut bar + DOT Rcomps will put you into DSP
-Remove CAI and strut bar, but add R-comps and you can still run H Stock

Disclaimer on the above line, to run H Stock, you must run 17x7 wheels with an offset that is within 1/4" of the stock SVT wheel offset.

I'm not sure on both your level of competition, and your goals for your autox season. Basically, how competitive do you want to be?

Some additional, unsolicited information:
-The SVT will be very competitive in H stock, especially at the local level
-The SVT will have a hard time keeping up in DSP, against fully prepped cars
-The SVT can do well at a local level in ST
ok thanks for this info... and i plan on being pretty competitive...

tukaniSVT Hmm ... thanks for the info.

I have a SRI and the struts(plus some other bits), but that's cool to know. Our H-Stock here has the Honda Fit, Toyota Yaris and Non-Turbo Miatas.

STS still exists, it is a class of old miatas and CRXs for the most part.

tukaniSVT ^^ Right ... I believe those are the classes across the board now. Our local classes have been changed to those this year as well.

And yup, those R-comps who definitely put you in a higher class. I didn't know that the CAI changed your class though ... I thought the CAI was still okay in the ST class.

GodLovesUgly R-comps would put you in SMF w/ the cold air. now if you took the cold air off and added R-comps, you would still be in Hstock.

now if you don't add the r-comps, you would be in ST. i don't think STS exist anymore. at least not locally for me. they now have ST STX STU and STR

SVTF410 with r-comps neither, with everything but the r-comps it would be ST but r-comps throw you into a much higher class like SM. ST allows you to use tires with a tread wear minimum of 140 if i remember right.
