  • Need help classing '86 Corolla GTS

    Hi everyone! New to autocrossing and was just wondering what class I would be classified as? Planning on registering for my first autocross.

    '86 Toyota Corolla GTS
    Stock Motor
    Mushroom Filter
    Oil Catchcan
    OBX Header to Remus muffler
    Front Suspension: Stock struts on Lowering springs, 3 Degree NRCAs
    Rear Suspension: KYB AGX adjustable struts with Lowering springs
    SSR Longchamps 15x7 on Hankook Ventus v2 Concept2 195/50
    Front and Rear strut tower bar
    Fixed back racing seat

    Thanks in advance!

    I am not 100% certain about the oil catch can, but considering that it doesn't really serve any speed-related performance-enhancing benefits, most of the other mods will put the car into STS.

    If the racing seat (including mounting hardware) is lighter than 25 lbs, it would be illegal for STS.

      Pretty sure the seat is lighter than 25 lbs. Does this mean I would have to take it out to be in STS? Or just go to a different class. Thanks again! Just really wanting to see how my car will do on the tarmac

        Just put yourself in STS, NO ONE is going to worry about your seat being up to weight locally.

        IFFF you think about going to regionals/nationals and you're looking at a top 3 finish its time to tape a couple pound weight to the back of the seat

        Sounds like a fun car! Look forward to seeing it on the pad!

          Forgot to mention it has a welded diff, is that going to be a problem? Thanks

            A welded diff would put your into FSP. Being in FSP also removes the weight restriction on the seat.

              FSP is F Prepared? Sorry if I sound like a scrub, VERY new to this

                FSP = F Street Prepared. Street Prep class has a much easier PAX than the Prepared class.
