Default Non-turbo miata autox class?

So im trying to get my car ready for my first autox not in a 4 seater grocery mobile (1994 v6 camry with shitty ebay lowering springs haha) but have no idea what class I will be in and what else I can do to my car without bumping into the bottom of the next class.

So far I have
1993 1.6 miata
cold air intake
hard dog hard core dub diag
about to put a new steering wheel with QR in
about to put in my coilovers once they arrive in the mail
stock wheels/street tires

Im thinking something like STS? but some things I read led me to believe the replaced steering wheel (going from airbag to no airbag) will bump me to CSP? which im guessing would be a bad thing since alot more can go on a CSP car than STS so I would be ill equipped for that class i feel like.

what are your thoughts? If I hold off on the steering wheel swap would I be in STS with other lightly modded cars? or will the coilovers put me in CSP anyways?

Thanks!

Steering wheel is CSP. Don't do the wheel, and you are in STS. Stay in STS, it is fun to see the reactions of guys with rcomps when the street tired girl's car pwns them.

thanks, im getting it in the mail tomorrow so ill prob put it on just to see how i like it, then swap it back out for the stock one for the autox. i understand the danger of working with an airbag, but should i be worried about just unplugging it/plugging it back in?

STS cars **** me off.


CSP is more expensive regionally/nationally but more competitive in our region.

I'm sort of prepping a CSP car, but being rather lazy with it as of late.

I just don't enjoy driving them.


That said, if you are running with the local clubs many of them wont care about a wheel if you are in STS, just ask when you get to tech...car is legal but I have an aftermarket wheel.
