Thanks for getting the results up so quickly. Nice job on the course as well. It flowed very nicely and made maximum use of the lot.

I don't think this was classed correctly - XHS   62   Walker Schutze   05 Scion tC.

It had an aftermarket turbo on it, among other mods.

Great!  So that moves me up to the first spot in the Street Tire Index Class right :)

No sir, my Scion tC is completely naturally aspirated and the mods I have done to it are all dealer options (100% TRD parts) and include springs, rear sway bar, front strut tie, and an axleback exhaust.

I talked to Justin about it, and he said that it should be classified as HS.

The 05 Scion xA that was there is very tuned with a turbo and redone suspension, and that is classified as SMF

Technically dealer installed options are not the same as factory options.  I would call your car an STS car I think.  Really doesn't matter though because its all for fun anyways.

4B11AWD - I think you're right.  The rules say "Cars running in Stock Category must have been series produced with normal road touring equipment capable of being licensed for normal road use in the United States, and normally sold and delivered through the manufacturer's retail sales outlets in the United States."  So it seems like the car has to be available from the dealer for sale in that configuration, the upgrade parts have to be factory options.

Walker - sorry for the misinformation.  I'd just run STS next time, you know who you should be running close to time-wise...class doesn't matter.  Also, no one should listen to my class advice  :-\

Haha, yeah, I hadn't come across that information yet. There was quite the discussion on the tC forums regarding classification with TRD parts. I'll be sure to show them this. I'll do STS next time and see how I can hang against those '89 civics.

Actually, you should be in ST instead of STS. STS is for 2-seaters. It is confusing as the street touring classes have been moved around quite a bit over the last few years.

The Solo rules are here - http://www.scca.com/documents/2011%20Tech/2011%20SCCA%20Solo%20Rules.pdf (http://www.scca.com/documents/2011%20Tech/2011%20SCCA%20Solo%20Rules.pdf). The street touring classes start on p. 175. You should check to make sure nothing you have added takes you out of ST. As Justin said, it makes no difference whether springs are TRD or Eibach for classing purposes, or who installs them (other than the factory).

Don't hesitate to ask specific questions if you have them.
