Class question

Postby ColoradoWRX » Wed Apr 09, 2014 12:31 am

I think I am reading the rules right, but if I have moved up to wider wheals with race slicks on my 2002 WRX then I am now in STX, only other modifications are exhaust and intake. If any one can help that would be great because I want to get magnetic numbers made. Thanks
Also, where do I find what numbers are already taken?

By "race slicks" I assume you mean some sort of DOT R-compound? In that case, you will be in whatever street prepared class your car fits into. the ST classes are limited to 140+ tread wear "street" tires.

Regardless of wheel size, the intake would have moved you out of street, and the exhaust may have as well, depending on how extensive it is.

Also, if your exhaust doesn't have a catalytic converter, that will also bump you to street prepared, the ST classes require a cat.

As far as the numbers, we don't have an official system for them, but I'd suggest looking through the event results from last year and picking a number you don't see used. You may be able to use the same number as someone else as long as they're in a different class, but it'd be easier to find yourself on the timing board if you do use a unique number.

Remember too that AWD in STX is limited to 7.5" wide wheels and 245mm tire width. I wouldnt worry so much except we will be in the same class and I just want to make sure everyone has a fair chance.

It's 8" / 245mm for STX AWD. STR AWD is 7.5" / 225mm.

You are correct, I was blinded by a moment of panic and read the wrong line. OK, so you can have 8" wide wheels in STX AWD. Thanks for the help Alex.
