I'm new to Autocross and having some trouble determining which class I should be racing in. Was hoping the forum could offer some guidance etc.
Here's what I have:
1995 Saab 9000 Aero - stock this car should be putting out 220 hp w/ 250 lbs-ft. For those not familiar its a 4 door+hatch sedan, 2.3L straight 4 engine with a TD04 turbo, front wheel drive, 5 speed manual. When new it was classed as a 'full-size' car.
Beyond stock I've made the following performance mods:
- Koni sport/yellow shocks
- poly suspension bushings
- poly trans mount
- poly top engine mount
- JZW stg. 1 ECU tune (ideally this brings the car from ~220hp to ~270hp roughly)
- 3" DP w/ race cat
For now the car is on Primacy tires. These aren't anything special and were from the previous owner; I'm just trying to wear them out so I can rationalize getting better but still street legal tires.
So - what class should I be in?
I'm thinking GSP? but not sure I'd be competitive there. My last (and first) autocross event I registered the car as GS in which it wasn't very competitive.... this was probably more due to my noob driving skills than anything else.
Any help here would be appreciated -
Thanks - bdrsaab.
