    DSP or Street Modified. Street Modified is tough as far as hardware is concerned, but I've seen DSP class times shorter than Street Mod. In a Street Mod you're about guaranteed to walk away with a plaque, because there aren't many competitors.

    CSP and DSP also contain the most FTD drivers.

    if you have suspension, Dmod. if you don't, im not sure.

    no prob for the stickers :) I'll have some on me from now on in the 240 i think :) hehe

    as for novice- you have to race novice 3 times, or win the novice class, before you race in a "real" class.

    ohh, and i don't have that sensor you were looking for. :( sorry

    But runs done at other clubs' events also count. So if you are in a rush for experience, you can just go to Waterbury and get some time in too with the FCSCC group.

    My Si is SM class now, so it's time to get the GS-R ready so I can go back to Stock class.

    According to SCCA rules, my Civic squeeks in under STS, STS class states a change in steering wheel.

    STS puts me in a class I'm honestly not ready to compete in though.

    Technically...no......

    That steering wheel was an aftermarket wheel designed for that specific car's era, made in part with the car's manufacture's sister's company... in this case...Mugen....just consider it an option that you got that no-one else did.

    And that wheel only added 10 hp, not much considering what the other people in STS add's to their cars....like turbo's, Superchargers, full dail-in suspension's...etc

    I wonder what class i'll be in this year...
    Stock engine civic w/ turbo, upgraded suspension, different steering wheel.

    I guess i need to compete in 1 more YN class though... i think i have a chance this year... ;)

    Here are the rules:

    solo II rules

    Don't think you can add turbos or superchargers to cars in STS. STS really falls in between Stock and Street Prepared, with the exception being you can't have r-compound tires. Not sure about the Nittos - you need to read the tire wear limit (I think nothing less than 140 or 150 or something). The Azenis are 200, for example, and a great STS tire.

    STS was created because a lot of kids were showing up for their first autocross with a bunch of Stock-illegal mods like CAIs, lowering springs, plus sized wheels, etc., and suddenly found themselved in DSP getting their a$$ handed to them by the Mark Daddio's of the world. They would quickly get frustrated and never come back.

    SCCA decided to create a class somewhere inbetween that allowed most of stuff that they had done, with the objective of keeping their interest and hooking them on autocross. And since they figured that few of these guys & gals would have racing rubber, they decided to limit the tires as well, so they could basically race with what they drove up on. In just a couple of years, STS has become the most popular class - at least on the national scene.
