okay, complete auto-x noob here with a couple questions that i didn't see addressed (forgive me if i just missed them). i've looked through the solo rulebook but it might as well be in russian.
first, i'm going to be getting new wheels most likely pretty soon, so would i be good to just keep my stock 17" snowflakes and get some racing tires for them to use specifically for races? what tires are the best?
also, i think i'd be in stx based on my setup but i'm not sure. here's what i'll have upgraded by the time i start racing:
-front and rear sways
-ms3 exhaust (kept stock cat)
-race tires on stock snowflakes (17" x 7.5)
will having the rear sway put me in some other class that i don't want to be in? i know front sway is legal for h stock but what about having both in sts or stx or whatever? should i just remove the rear sway before races?
also, i'm thinking about upgrading all engine mounts, would that bump me up even more?
i hope these questions are making sense. thanks for the help!
hmmm....so it looks like i'd be STS then with all of that...i guess motor mounts would kick me up out of those classes, it doesn't sound like "Alternate motor mounts sold by vehicle manufacturer or its competition subsidiary" would count for SU motor mounts.
i didn't see anything about a CAI...unless "Intake and exhaust port matching" is referring to CAI...in which case it looks like i'd have to remove it to stay in STS.
Okay i have done autoX before but not with my mazda. Whats the seggested tire pressure for raceing? What class would i be in if i have a CAI? And i want to get a HKS exhaust. That exhaust takes off one of the cats if i understand correctly???
