Hey all, I know a few people that do autocross and I am really interested in giving it a go. I've been on the website to try to figure out my classification. I think I have it correct but I wanted to run it by someone to make sure I'm right.

I'd be running my 2015 Mazda 3 hatch with this list of mods
short ram intake
axelback exhaust
short throw shift plate
coilover suspension with upgraded rear sway bar and rear camber arms
OE replica front lip
aftermarket wheel and tire setups one setup is 18X8 with 215/45's or 16x7 with 215/55's.

The 18x8's i believe would out me in the STX class due to the wheels being over 7.5" but if I were to run the 16X7 setup then I would be ok for the STS class. I am hoping someone would be able to let me know if I am correct or not.

One other question I have is, between the two different wheel setups which would be better to run? The 18's are running toyo proxies 4 plus (all season performance) and the 16's are firestone FT140's which are considered a grand touring all season.

One last thing, do they allow you to attach goPro's to the outside of your car while racing?
any insight or help in the questions would be greatly apprecited!
