The Cooper S is G-stock, the regular ol' Cooper is H-stock, and both are currently understood to own their respective classes. There's some talk, apparently, of moving some or all years of the Cooper S to D-Stock, which as a G-stock driver, would be fine by me

A recent article that I read said that beefing up the front bar is more beneficial as it allows the car to put the power on the ground more effectively.

May Edition of SPORTSCAR Magazine. "Stock Tips for Autocross"
i think this statement is valid only for RWD cars. for FWD a stiff FSB will lessen the traction of the inside wheel when exiting a corner which will light up the 1 tire fire. I read a really good article on it, but am too lazy to look for it right now.


also, i wanted to add for the OP that he should get DOT approved R-compound tires if he wants to be competative in stock class. I ran kuhmo V710 (205/50R15) on a set of stock 15" wheels. if he is not interested in R comp tires, maybe he should just keep his mods on and run STS (similar pax) and then he would be free to do some extra mods ( like suspension) without getting bumped up again.
for a stock FWD car with no RSB, you might consider removing the FSB or putting in a small one (ie. SPI bar) to gove the front tires more grip and to give a little extra rotaion in the corners
