  1. Correct. This would be legal for STU regardless of diameter as it is considered part of the air inlet/intake.
  2. The throttle body and injectors take you out of any kind of street touring so the next class progression for this car I believe would be DSP.
  3. You appear to be registered to run in A so therefore you work in B group. Once you do your work assignment, your done for the day.
  4. Oh Scott also forgot to mention he's piloting something new (he's been dialing it in this past summer at Marana). Noticed a 2017 Golf R classed in STH, it should be in STU (older less powerful Golf R is an STH car though.
  5. Lots of good ideas being thrown out here. I would suggest attending one of the upcoming SC meetings with a list of ideas/proposal on how the region could support these events. Yes these events have been done in the past, but logistically there were more options other than AMP to choose from.
  6. This has to be an error, otherwise we all need to quit if a GS car is raw timing everything:
  7. Not getting that 43 and being so close was a slap in the face, hence the fbomb LMAO
  8. 44.07x run. The last left before the finish got me every time.
  9. Unless you plan on running at national events, vinyl/magnetic numbers are not needed for the local stuff here.
  10. Not true. The course is setup following the course design as best as possible within the given boundaries. It is then adjusted to appease safety above all else before preferred line, which is often why setup takes longer as safety stewards find things here and there that aren't always apparent on the gridded course map.
  11. A052s will probably last longer on that STX car with camber vs the GTI with no/weak camber, so not really an apples to apples comparison. The A052s will also likely will wear into oblivion on the GTI before the Toyobaru does. I'll be testing the RT660s this weekend and hopefully get a synopsis on how they compare to the Rival 1.5S's and the RE71Rs on a FWD with some decent camber. My guess is they will probably wear like the RE71R's, but I'm hoping they can handle a bit of over driving like the Rivals and A052s.
  12. The last of the remaining RE71Rs are starting to dwindle away...
  13. I would have to agree with you Jeff. For those that have recently joined our region, in prior times our old model would often overwhelm the system and would limit the amount of runs people would get (for folks that dont know AMP has a no earlier than 8am run start or something to that nature, and a no later than 430pm finish time if I remember correctly but correct me if I'm wrong). Add the 220 + entrants, then add a timing issue here and there, some DNFs, reruns, etc, all of which of course adds time. Time that we have only so much of at this particular site. Which leads to the weak 3 runs max (I'm well aware of national tours only having 3 runs per day, but the masses usually aren't too happy with 3 runs for a 1 day local event). I would like to open up the events, but I think the region might have to look at some of these learnings from the modified CV19 structure, and find some way to implement it moving forward when they do decide to open back up.
  14. To answer the tire question, Falken RT660s or the Yokohama A052s
  15. ^Mark, I believe the main website is going through a complete revamp so info on there will not be current. Unfortunately as of right now, the forum and motorsportreg is where the basic event info will be found.
  16. 46.2 run. I wish I was smoother with the throttle coming out of the slower portions of the course.
  17. Selling a set of 4 255/40/17 Bridgestone RE71Rs that I ran on my STH prepped Focus ST. The tires have fairly even wear and have roughly about 4.5 to 5/32's of tread left. $150 picked up in Gilbert, or I can bring them to the next event in February if they are still around by then.
  18. I still think the SEB will class it as a DS car because currently nothing AWD in GS has anything close to that power level except for the skinny body WRX which barely makes over 200 hp. OP, seeing as there are a few folks that may care about the local plastic trophy involved or fair competition, I would probably ask the HS competition if they were ok. If it were me, DS given the info provided and looking at the cars that make up that DS with similar power/drive train and weight.
  19. For Street Touring, the power level/weight is on par with the WRX (non STI of course) MK6 golf R, Focus ST, Civic SI, Speed 3, and Audi TT which would probably make it progress into STH at some point, if the SEB compares it to those cars which do happen to be classed in STH progressing from the street category.
  20. GS, but the new Mazda 3 is more like a WRX (which is a DS car)than its FWD older sibling.
