|Carrera26||I haven't heard anything mentioned about the SVTF, in any way, so I can only assume it's status quo from last year.|

Yes, especially because the smaller wheels help gearing, and with the Stock-class legal adjustable dampers you can adjust for the change.
It's not just the power lost in the rotating mass, it's also a lot less weight for the suspension to control, which means better suspension response, especially on bumpy surfaces.

|MyBlackST||The mazda3 5 door and sp comes with 160hp and 17"rims and better tires. Plus the suspension is a little better. But with the right driver we can take em.|

|Oni||I doubt it too, but it just is currently placed that way. Wouldn't make any sense to me... or all the autocrosser out there. That's good to see the Spec V's going to GS. That'll hopefully bring in a little more competition here locally.|

|Carrera26||Yeah, never really had much problem with the Spec-Vs, I thought that they were mis-classed in DS.|

Sentra SE-R is going from DS to GS.
Here's the Fastrack info:
