Not sure this is the right area for this question...

Can anyone suggest an alignment shop on the west side of town?

Thanks

I've run a few races, done some AutoX homework, but I'm still eligible for Novice classing, so really I'm still wet behind the ears when it comes to autocross.

My question is on your thoughts regarding the classing rules. Some things have come up that have made me go "hmm..." I know a lot of people with much more experience than me have these rules in place for a reason, I just don't always understand them. If some of these classes are to make it easier for new racers to join or to keep people competitive within a class at a reasonable cost to the driver. This is my understanding of stock and ST classes) So here's what I'm seeing and thinking and I'd like your thoughts.

- Why isn't there a truly Stock class? Where R-comp tires aren't allowed?
-- This one baffles me. The "entry" level requires you to spend $1000-$2500 for wheels/tires to be competitive.
-- SCCA basically came out and said "R-comps make a bigger difference to your performance than anything you can do in ST class" with the current PAX.
- Why am I limited on the non-functional (or at least non-beneficial) bolt-ons for my ST car?
-- If I put a lip kit on my car, the way the rules are written, I'm out of STF and into FSP, even though the lip kit is just for appearances and will likely hurt my performance if anything.
-- Why can't I fit as wide of wheels and tires on my car as I can fit without body modification? My stock tire is 225, but I can easily fit 255 on my car.

Please don't take this as griping. I'm genuinely curious. I love AutoXing and I find myself frustrated when I see something shiny I could buy for my car, but when I look up the rule book, it changes my class, while obviously not giving the performance gains that would justify the change.

Thanks,
Paul
