Not sure what model car this is referencing but STX does allow strut tower bars, note you can only add a tower bar with 2 attachment point. A 3 point is only allowed if you are replacing a factory oem 3 point bar, see 14.2.G in the SCCA solo rulebook for more info if this applies to you. Wheels in STX are up to 8.0 inches for AWD cars and 9.0 inches for 2wd cars (14.4 for more info).

 

Hope that helps!

I'm guessing you have a 2005 Mini Cooper S? (Yr and model may vary the class). If so, changing springs will keep you in STX.

Spring are legal in all ST, SP, SM, P, M and CAM classes. The only class you CANNOT install aftermarket springs in is "Street" class.

Michelle's car is a 2012 VW Golf with the 2.5L engine (5 cylinders, 20 valves). Car is stock. I could not find where it would actually fit without using the top most catch all for SS. The car is basically a Jetta so I classed her in HS but not sure that is appropriate. Also I notice that the classing sometimes mentions the 2.5L and just that and sometimes as 2.5L 5-cyl.

I had a look on page 157 of the 2018 rule-book and noticed the same. This comes up often in SCCA fastracks updates. Not EVERY car is classed in street. there's always clarifications and model splitting going on.  With your situation it's safe to assume the they intent is to include the Golf 2.5 in HS with the "Jetta 2.5". The "Golf GTI & Jetta (16v non turbo)" line realistically should just drop the 16v verbiage to include 20v. I doubt there's many Golf 2.5L's running so his has never been brought up. I assume this 2.5L is N/A? Looks like the turbo Golf of this generation would be under GS not HS. Also is the Golf with a 2.5L available in the States too or is that a Canada only model?

It is just a NA motor, no turbo, and it was available in the US...so it's probably just not really being run at events. It for sure is nothing to write home about but it's a decent DD.
