There are plenty of other cars running AST's, sticky rubber and fully forged 2.5's....

Perhaps a "slightly" modified class would be nice for us ordinary folk, e.g. mine has only "bolt-on" mods fitted ? More rules = more bitching, so we will see.

IMHO

kinda, i just saw it and thought thats abit strange and not exactly fair considering he is a well known tuner.

makes sences to have pro class if your a tuner, mod if your a private guy off the street whos had alot of work done, then perhaps stock where your limited by what you can do, say for example have to be running the standard engine.

I agree to an extent, bit hard to spot forged pistons and steel rods though.

I was going to enter, but my car would have to go in the modified class, due to a few bolt ons.

I'd have to brake on the start line for the 1st corner with my crappy 2pots.

Well I'm entering the last 2 rounds and I'm rightly in the modified class. I'm not fussed that I'm 200Hp down on some - and dare I say some of the cars in the standard class can achieve the same power as me with the allowed exhaust and remap.

As far as I'm concerned its just a bit of fun to see what I can do.

Thanks, but I'm a New-Age STI user now, Brembos + PF are almost good enough, once I get the fluid changed, again !
