Carrera26 Thanks for the correction man...

As for the Sentra, are you asking if they move out of stock with ST mods and go right into STX?
07-13-2006 03:18 PM
dubalicious That is actually what I thought Egz, however I thought that SER Spec V's were stuck in STX because they had a factory LSD?

Egz If its added to a non-LSD car, its STX. Only cars equiped from the factory with a viscous LSD are allowed in STS.

No limited slip differentials are permitted except for factory standard viscous coupler type units.

03OrangeSVT It wouldn't do me any good to try to autocross.... I could just imagine what kind of class they would stick me in LOL

On topic...
I would do suspension, tires, brakes, short shifter, motor mounts and possibly a tune and see how well you do then decide if you want to go with Forced Induction.

The good thing about the stuff I mentioned is it will increase the overall drivability of the car not only ON the track but during daily driving as well.

dubalicious Ok thank you Carrera.

I thought an LSD put you in STX?

arrestmespi I have a street Modified SPI, I already go thrown up there for just the BDR throttle body, and the removal of the back seat and soon the install of the roll cage and I will be in street modified. I will be turbo charged by the end of the year. I was running dunlop sports(blew a damn tire and back to goodyear assurances) and do very well against porches and vettes. I do a lot of my autox with the PCA. The reason I am doing well versus these highly modified super cars are because the drivers are arragant shit heads who think a 100k car will beat my 15k dollar car. They never practice, don;t do schools, I practice almost every weekend and go to as many schools as I can afford and as time allows

Klondike ^^^im with carrera on this, stay NA, really if you have good suspension and good tires you can kick ass.
i got an automatic spi rated at about 94whp. all i got under the hood is a sri, stock size tube. i got svt kit no rear sway, which i need to put on. and my times are very nice. my best run in 1st race i got a 1:06 a mustang got 1:07 a few more modified cars and beemers and such fastest were 1:03 and fastest time was put down by an evo 8 with 57 really its not how fast your car is, its how well you can take corners. i had slowest car in race, still do, yet i pound the corners harder,most of the time, then some of the faster cars.
remember this saying "to be fast sometimes you need to go slow"
