  1. Thanks! @Magner I'm currently running a 205. It's likely that other mods will push me out of STS before tires do. But that will probably be next year.
  2. Is this looking like a go for the July 24-25? I'm just curious if I should be doing Autocross or fixing my Dirt car lol
  3. Hi Magner, I've added a second car to the collection and since we can't run for a while I figure it's a good time to get this figured out. I've got a 1990 Volvo 240 DL (naturally aspirated) It's about 114 crank hp, around 2900 lbs, RWD Modifications: Lowering springs Bilstein Shocks Front + Rear Sway Bar 200 Treadwear tires From what I can tell that puts me into Street Touring Sport with mods. The "light/older RWD, emphasis on momentum and handling over power" in the rule book seems to fit
  4. I'd like to keep my 37 please Bradly Wohlgemuth Member number #7243
  5. Thanks Magner! I checked the cats and my current pipe has the same position as one of the old ones (original pipe had two). So as long as I run 200+ UTQG I'll stay in STH. Just noticed the lists of makes/models in the pdf, somehow I've been missing that this whole time. I checked and the Legacy 2.5 GT listed under ESP is 2005-12 so it is the turbo model since all GTs in that generation were turbocharged. So if I go with tire rated below 200 UTQG I'll be ESP and run with the modified group. Thankfully I think I'm finishing up with mods on this car so shouldn't need to worry about this anymore. At least until the new project starts looking ready to hit autocross haha.
  6. So winter is seeing some changes to my Legacy. I ended up going with the catless downpipe. But talking to my tuner and now I'm also changing the intake tube, and boost control solenoid. Does this push me into A Street Prepared? I'm not sure what the boost control solenoid is categorized in. It's a performance mod but I'm mainly getting it because my tuner says it allows a better tune. I'm also talking to a buddy who has a set of 100 UTQG tires for my car. From what I can see that's not allowed in a lot of the categories. Full mod list: Coilovers Catless uppipe Catted downpipe Bypass valve Boost control solenoid Intake tube Short throw shifter Tune
  7. Thanks Mike! Likely ice racing will be my first exposure to wheel to wheel racing so I don't know how competitive I'll be. It'll be great to just get out and start doing it. That said the car is still my daily driver haha (It now gets threatened with getting gutted and caged every time it breaks on me). So I'll have to think about what I want to use for daily and what for racing. I'll keep an eye on the forums/online ads for viable cars or built race cars too. What's the general weight people look for before doing weight reduction? I know a lot of the cars are small hatchbacks but those are getting harder and harder to find, especially in manual. Strange question but has anybody ever raced a "street legal" plated car? Or is it pretty much required to trailer/dolly it around. That's been the biggest hangup for me, transportation and storage of an unregistered car.
  8. Hmm, maybe. Not sure I'm ready at the moment. No trailer/space for a not street legal vehicle. Since the ice racing is all FWD how would my 05 Lancer Ralliart be as a dedicated ice racer? 162 hp/162 ft/lb torque, very slick 5 speed, responsive throttle, 2800 lbs. Fairly common for parts and shares many with the base Lancer. I did ice lapping in it last winter and was a blast. It's currently my daily driver but it's starting to rust out so thinking what to do when it's ready to retire.
  9. I hadn't thought about that. I was at the open hot laps last winter with my Lancer (was so much fun!), this year I'll be attending with a recently purchased Subaru, the Volvo didn't quite get ready for safety this winter so maybe I'll get that out next winter. Thanks for the advice, looks like one day I'll have to consider adding a cheap FWD car to the lineup. Or buying one of the used racecars that pop up on the forum here.
  10. A general query, I picked up a 1990 Volvo 244 (NA) with a 5 speed manual transmission. Would it make a viable ice racer? They're decently lightweight 2800-2900 lbs before being gutted. I ask because I have one I got with another 244 in a packaged sale. I love the idea of using an old brick for racing. I've never done any wheel to wheel racing but it's something I want to work my way into, might be a few years in the future but might shape what I do with this car.
  11. Thanks! That helps a lot. So is going catless not allowed in any class?
  12. Hi everyone, I just finished my first event and want to figure out how some upcoming mods are going to affect my class/PAX. I have a 2005 Legacy GT, currently just has an ECU tune. I'm going to be putting coilovers on the car very soon. I believe at this point I would be in Street Touring? Would I be in Street Touring Xtreme or Hatchback (hatchback says for turbo hatchbacks and sedans)? I'm also considering replacing my uppipe and downpipe with catless pipes but want to make sure that's allowed and if so what class it puts me in. Thanks,
