    Everyone competing in ST*- needs to read this!

    You may or may not be aware of a major change looming for ST* classes. This major change is the result of a "clarification". The long and short of it is that almost no WRX/STi competing currently will be "legal" by this clarification. The clarification is far from clear and directly conflicts the rules governing cats/emissions/O2 sensors. If your running anything other than a stock exhaust- this directly impacts you.

    Please read through this thread:

    and then more importantly after you read through the thread- please write both the SEB at

    seb@scca.org

    and doug gill at

    dgill@scca.com

    Thanks!

    D'oh. Thanks for the notice. Been too busy to get to any events yet this season so I haven't heard anything about this.

    I'll have to read it in detail when I get time. I hope this doesn't prevent me from running catless in stx.

    I assume these changes are for next season, not immediate?

    Wow. I'm just starting page 4 of 11 of the thread on NASIOC, so I'm not fully up to date on the latest with this, but so far I must say as someone fairly new to the sport that I'm disappointed with the bureaucracy of the SCCA.

    Edit: I also just found a length thread on SCCA forums: http://sccaforums.com/forums/thread/255144.aspx
    I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but there may be something else worthwhile in there as well.

    Yes, please do voice your opinions. I found out last weekend that my Cobb Downpipe makes me illegal for STU. Total BS, this goes against the entire purpose of ST* classes.

    I mean they were made for the people with mildly modded street cars to play without R-comps and without having to run against the SM crowd. I mean come on, what is the first thing probably 90% of mildly modded cars do?

    it' s a "clarification" so it's immediate, the more folkd that write in the better chance of getting this "clarification" rescinded
