VA Looking for car classing help for scca soloII

Hi all. Attending my 1st autocross in a week. I'm having trouble classing my car, because there seem to be so many on the registration form. Any help would be great. My mods are

93 r1
stock turbos/motor/seats/strut tower bars/sway bars/struts/charge release valvev/air bypass valve/brakes/oil coolers/wheels/fuel system

removed emissions/airpump

aftermarket downpipe/catback/intercooler/radiator/ast/ecu/springs/hi-flow cat/gauges/intake/greddy elbow

Thats about it for what seems to be important

The changes in regulations for non-stock radiator must have gone through.

Previously that would have put you in SSM (used to be SM2)

At local events, you would be classed ASP with no problem.

For National events, you may have to change some to be in strict compliances with the rules.

ASP under Section 15.

Wrong! You can use R- compound tires even in Stock classes.

Agree with Sandro on tires...but you probably got a Power FC, which is a nogo in ASP. SSM for you.

After market ECU (including the Power FC) are allowed in ASP

I ran in ASP. Totally sucked. Fastest time of the day was a 45.xx secs My best was 55.1xxsecs. I managed to hit no cones on any 6 runs, spun once, but had the greatest time. Now I just have to learn tire pressure for street tires and work on being smooth. I think 35/30 f/r ended up being the best for me. Thanks all. Lots of reading to do now. Feel free to close the topic.
