Quick question

Im new to autocross. Ive read the rules and I was trying to figure out the class my car would be in since I have a steeda sri, steeda sts, and the svt kit. Ive tried reading the rules but just got confused.

I appreciate the help.

Thanks,
Brett

That's an easy one...ST.
That is, unless you also have SVT rear brakes, which IIRC puts you in FSP.
(You mentioned SVT kit, which I assume is dampers/springs, but I guess it could be brakes too.)

Here's a hint on classing cars.
If it doesn't specifically state that you can do it in the rules, then you can't.
EX:
Stock says nothing about springs, so you can't change springs in Stock class.
ST says you can change springs, so you can put on different springs in ST class.

But then again...
I see those aftermarket upper and lower grilles.
If there's a real diehard in your club, you could get bumped clear to EP.
(That's the first time grilles are mentioned)

So what class did you end up running in and how was your first auto-x? Haven't heard from you since we talked last and you were heading to your first event.

Congrats! Lol. You should come out to our regions some time and run with us. We've got an assortment of ST* class folks. However, my car has been run SM/FSP and failed miserably lol.
