Hi everyone, I just wanted to double check my classing before I signed up for May's event.
I recently picked up a 2002 NB Miata. Everything is stock except for a rotrex supercharger, coilovers, extended lower ball joint, swaybars and ecu. I'm planning to be running on 200TW tires. Will tihs qualify for CST or will I need to run SSM? Thanks in advance!

So I have a '96 Miata which would clearly fall into an SM class but I'm not sure if my modifications would change that. The only major upgrades are in suspension, standalone ECU, and a nitrous shot. Any big class changes due to that? (This is my first post with SCCA so bear with me if I just asked a dumb question.)

For your first foray into the sport I'd recommend you run our local CST class.

In order to run with us you'll have to remove the nitrous bottle. It is a safety issue.

CST if the tires have 140 tread wear rating or higher.
CSM if lower than 140.

I'm looking to try autocrossing for the first time and just wanna do it for fun. Please help me with my car's classing.I have a 2000 miata (LS I believe). Currently, it has 15x8 +36 wheels with 225/45 toyo proves r1rs. It has an intake(I can revert to stock if it helps me bump to a different class) and 01+ exhaust manifold. The car already came with a roll bar when I got it. Not exactly sure if the front shock tower brace came from the car factory, but it seems like it. I believe that's all in terms of mods.

The Toyos are 140 tread wear which Is legal in CST.
If they were less than 140 you'd be in CSP.

Actually, the new Toyo R1R is 200 Treadwear.

I've been considering getting a spare set of tires and saw some daisies for sale. If I were to use the daisies for autox, would I still be in CST everything currently have on my car? I forgot to mention I also have an aluminum radiator as well.

Daisies are 14", be sure to test fit them over your brakes before you commit to purchasing them.

Competitive tires are very limited in 14" options. I'd recommend spending a little more, and find a set of 15" tires.

Hi Mark,

Welcome

M4's are in A Street (AS), your 435i would be in F Street (aka: FS)

Hey everyone,
New to autocross and having trouble classing my car. I have read through the Street Category sections and my vehicle complies with everything except for my wheels. My wheels are 1" wider than stock. After reading through the Street Touring, Street Prepared and Street Modified sections, I am confused with the wheel widths.
Another item that seems unclear to me... to qualify for Street Category you must use "standard" springs... not sure what that is supposed to mean but I plan to install some aftermarket springs with a mild 1" drop.
What class would I fall under? I have a 2013 Honda Civic Si Sedan.
Thanks!

It sounds like it would be STX, as 8" is too wide for STF. At any rate, you should just focus on driving and getting used to the sport, so you can run a class we have called CST, which allows most modifications as long as you are on 140tw tires and it is a registered street car.

In Street category, (which replaced Stock), you must use OEM springs.

As Adam mentions above, you can't change wheel width in Street, so you'll look to a higher category with your 1" wider wheels The 2006-2015 Honda Civic Si is specifically classed in STX, which allows wheels up to 9" wide for 2WD vehicles. I'm not sure what your actual wheel width is, but if it is 9" or less, you'll go there.

Locally, we also have California Street Touring, which is pretty much a run-what-you-can-keep-registered class on street tires.

Main thing is to come out and meet people and have fun. Wheel get all rules crazy on you later.

This is a tough one...

Your M edition, limited slip knocks you out of STS
Your 8.0 wheels knocks you out of STR

Your looking at CSP so far as SCCA national classes go... and DOT approved race tires are allowed there.

Or CST (California Street Tire) a local a run what you brung class on 140TW tires.

If you like playing with us, and looking down the road opt for a second set of tires dedicated to AX'ing, pickup a set of 15x7.5" rims, and head to STR.

The wheel width limit for STR is 9"...
