Are we OK with running Legend cars in F MOD in this region? Or are they not allowed like karts?

Legends are fine. We've run them multiple times.

Any observations on why we don’t see them more often?

My observation is that it ups the commitment level to about as high as you can go for autoslalom. We get good turnouts locally and regionally, but the vast majority are daily driven or road legal cars. Buying a Legend for autoslalom means truck, trailer, storage etc. If you are casual or on a budget it is not an option.

How much of an average Legend car is setup for left-turns only? Is it an easy adjustment for changing to a symmetrical setup, or would it require new control arms and such?

From what I can tell from appropriating metric stock car parts for my truck, the control arms are different lengths; S10 guys often use 2 right side UCAs as a cheap option for shorter, tubular arms. On some, the rear is also set up with a short Panhard bar positioned to facilitate 'jacking' of the outside wheel. If you have enough skill to build or wrench on the car in the first place, it probably wouldn't be difficult to make it turn both ways.
