Class for SCCA autocross? 330i ZHP slightly modded

I'm slightly confused currently, reading the rules it looks like I'm needing to run in STX this year.

mods are turner sways ans Bilstein PSS coils

future mods include strut tower bar and exhaust mods (post cat)

tires are Sumitomo HTR ZIII's 235 Fr 265 Rr

Maybe things have changed since I was involved but STX used to only be for cars with an LSD. If you don't have a limited slip you could run STS.

how long has that been? STX was filled with a few WRX's and a Mazdaspeed 3, a Honda Accord, and an Rx8, and a Neon SRT-4, 11 cars in all.
I came in 10th sunday, but had a passenger the whole time (Girlfriend), and for my second autocross in 2 years, with a new car setup basically, I don't think I did too bad. only one cone, which was in the first of 5 runs.

I'm hoping to finish mid field next time, now that I have a better feel for the new tires and suspension.

Its been a few years since I have been autocrossing. STX makes for a fun class. I would take advantage of the 265 max tire width for FWD/RWD, going with a square set up(if they still have the rule).

There are quite of few good threads in here about autocrossing.
