The new classes will add some confusion for selecting the best/right class.  If you're not sure I'd say just register for what you think might be the correct class then talk to someone when you get tech'd and/or confirm registration.

Im thinking of running Auto X this year. Just curious what class I would fall under.
03 Cavalier with aftermarket sound upgrades and a K&N replacement air filter. Nothing performance, interior, body work, rims or tires changed on this car though. What class would I fall under?

These are not gospel, please review the Solo Rules yourself to be sure (as stated, this can be updated at the time of registration/check-in) but, as per my best estimates:

Nebraska Region classes: http://nrscca.com/solo_classes.php
Solo Rules: http://www.scca.com/solo/content.cfm?cid=44517

G Stock


wondering what class I'm in, not finding where to register for the first event on the NE SCCA website either.

1999 2.5RS

-Kumho all season tires
-stock exhaust to aftermarket muffler
-short ram intake to stock torque box
-20mm wrx rear sway bar.   

 that's all my "mods" :P
Street Touring (due to intake), probably STC


I know they have changed and added some classes recently. I have a stock awd forester. Am I just in SA? Can someone clarify for me please?
H Stock
(SA is your class for RallyX)


05 Saab 9-2x Linear (with Aero hood)

- TEIN CO's
- F & R sway bars
- Headers
- mild head porting
- CAI
- RG stickers   ;)

I'm guessing either DSP, ESP, or FSP  :unsure:
Betting ESP if they treat the Aero like a WRX (which would be appropriate ;))

I haven't been as active the last couple years, but I think a more appropriate class might be Street Touring.  STS for 2.5RS right?

Quite right!  Didn't see that intake is also on ST, as the short ram is the most serious mod in terms of classes. 

So, since they updated the ST classes, you'd be in STC (Street Touring Compact) with me!

Oh yeah, now it's on!  :subaru:

This should be fun. My understanding is that Alexa would be Street Modified / Road Tire Modified (RTM). Since I'm a novice, I know I'm not competing based on my car but on my very limited skillz. Is there anything I should be concerned with for passing tech?

Yep!  ;D

You shouldn't have any problem passing tech, Andy. 

They're just going to check a few basics: throttle return works -- won't stick wide open (not sure if you have drive by wire or not, non-issue if so), wheel bearings aren't toast, brakes work, tires aren't showing cords, car is emptied of loose objects. 

That's pretty much it.

And I think you're right with the SM.

Does the trunk monkey count as a loose object? I hear I need him to maintain proper weight distribution.

Rick and I zip-tied a monkey to the rear tow hook at RallyX Nationals, but I think we got away with that since it was outside the vehicle. 

If the trunk monkey's got a belt or harness, I think you'll be fine.  He'll probably need to grab a loaner helmet though, if he doesn't have his own...

Actually, he's got Velcro on his hands and feet. He hands from the trunk spring bars and is Velcro-ed to the carpet, so that should be considered "attached". He is a thinkorswim monkey. They used to give them out to anyone who opened a new account (they might still, not sure). He needs a name, but I guess that's a topic for another thread.

Yep, we should be in the same class!  I may have a few advantages in my setup, but there's never any guarantees in racing, as in most of life, haha. 

In any case, it'll be nice to have another Subie to run against (usually 2-4 drivers at most in ST, anyhow).

Best of luck to you and see you out there!

And I think you're right with the SM.

This should go without saying...but you also have to have working seat belts/harness.  They will also check your helmet if you have one. 

When you arrive just find a parking spot and unload.  After you do that find TECH and drive over to it.  When they come over to check your car make sure you open your hood and trunk/hatch. 

Don't forget to have fun.  That's what AutoX is all about.   :discomonkey

Yep!  Good points, all around^^    :discomonkey  :discomonkey  :discomonkey

Forgot to add one minor thing, but still important.  You'll want to make sure your battery tie down is secure and the battery is solidly in place.  Also that there isn't excessive corrosion/build up on the terminals.

How could we forget to add this stuff earlier in the thread?   ;D

After looking at the online registration it looks like we have a good chunk of Subarus signed up.  It should be fun!

That's a good question. Will there be concessions available? Is it OK to leave and return to the site? Can one of the experienced guys post a list of what to bring?

There are usually about 3-5 coolers with soda and water that are provided free to participants.  Not sure if they park will have any concessions, but it is cool to leave and return to the site as needed, as long as you're still attending to your worker duties.

I always try to bring a granola bar or something else simple just in case/for breakfast.  And I always have some extra water on hand, but there's really never been a need.

Bring sun lotion!!  On a day like we're supposed to have, that will be something you'll be missing by the end of it, if you're without.

Most every event there has been lunch provided free as well, given the weather you can assume grilling: hot links and brats were on the menu for the last RallyX, for example (they include chips and such usually as well).  The food has been available to non-drivers as well in the past.  Often it's just open ended, sometimes drivers will go through the line before spectators have a go.  On a few occasions there have been pay or donation based food crews that set up (family type deals/fundraisers ~$5 at most), but that's more rare than the SCCA provided ones and still great value for money when it is that way.

Sounds good. What about attire? Do I remember correctly that drivers need a long sleeve cotton shirt? I don't have a helmet, so I'll need to use one of the loaners (already been discussed). What about pants? Jeans or shorts OK? Shoes? Any type of closed toe? Do I need to bring my headsock for wear under the helmet?
