    Is this list still accurate? Thinking of turning my SVT into a dedicated AutoX car. As it sits right now, I have headers, y-pipe (with HF cat), BAT suspension, air intake, wheels & stock width tires.

    In the 2013 SCCA rulebook, Headers are listed as Street Touring legal, however am I missing something? On our cars, do headers take you out of STX?

    The other thing is that the Contour isn't listed in the cars for any Street Touring class, but the SVT appears specifically in DSP. Again, I'm new to this so I may not be understanding the rule book. Ultimately this is for fun and I'm not trying to build the best STX or DSP car, just trying to find out where my car actually sits.

    the street touring classes got changed up last year a bit and there is a proposal to change stock classes up to make them more like the old ST classes. if im remembering right you would be in STS. you could run in STX if you want. ultimately the tour/cougar is heavy for just about every class, so depending on your region it will vary where you will be competitive. I run in SMF, a class dominated by 89 civics and minis that are much lighter

    Thanks! I think you're right, I would be in STS as I sit unless I put wider tires to bump me to STX.

    No, you cannot run STS. That is a class for 2-seat cars. At the prep you described and with no LSD, you should be running STC or STF, but you could do STX as well. There are way too many classes in SCCA Solo these days, and it's only getting worse! This thread is way out-of-date and should be un-stickied or updated. Refer to the SCCA official rule manual for latest classing, as it changes nearly every year.

    Our cars are STC and SMC cars I just went through this people in my region were complaining about me bein in STF because I was kicking there a$$ so bad I'm still kicking there a$$ in STC. STF is for newer cars with small engines mazda 2's, 3's, Hondas non vtack , Pontiac vibe, Toyota matrix ect.

    As for STX that class is for small engine turbo cars like mazdaspeed 3's, Volkswagen jetta GLI's stuff that will beat our cars realatively easy without having a crap ton of suspension work. I'm barly able to keep up with those cars.
