Anyone Still Autocrossing your Kappa?
« on: June 19, 2017, 10:54:02 AM »
All,

I'm still autocrossing the Sol and having a blast except for the high output all wheel drives in my class, B-Street.  The Focus RS and WRX have far more horsepower and all wheel drive.  I'm wondering if anyone here is in the same fix and want to join a campaign to motion that SCCA move the NA Kapa to a more appropriate class. This class assignment looks like it is years old and certainly before the Focus and WRX foes.

Comments?

The Kappa certainly shouldn't be in any class with all wheel drive cars. With the organization being as tight as they are with the rules I would think this would be an easy sell.
Just trying to do my part...

My daughter still campaigns in A Street. Not too fair for her to compete against my C6 Z06, and Camaro 1LE's. Fortunately, she can run in ladies class, but the PAX kills her against other cars which are better classed.

Yes the Turbo Kappa's are another group that is now out dated with A-Street classification. A good argument is needed and suggestion probably to get a re-class.

I'm autocrossing my base Solstice, but I'm in CAM-S because the "do pretty much anything so long as it's a street car still" rules suit my needs.
