Can anyone decipher the rule changes about motor mounts and seats? How are they different than last year? Does the seat requirement allow non-reclining seats?

Also when they say the Evo 8 and WRX STi are "excepted" vehicles, does that mean they are banned from Street Touring (STX in this case since I believe both are turbo or AWD)

Non-reclining seats are allowed in STS, but must weigh at least 15 lbs (not counting the mounting bracket) and the seating surface must be upholstered.

One thing about that though - there is no rule allowance for removing the airbags integral to the seats - if you are heading to nationals it might be a point of contention - who knows. Since you are not allowed to remove airbags in STS it is in that gray area where the rules overlap.

Another interesting change is the RSX-S is now in GS - just saw that in the Feb 04' fastrack

Motor mounts are allowed, just have to be where they were originally located - and you can use a torque supression device

The STI and EVO8 are excluded because they are in a significantly faster class that most of the STX cars (mostly 'GS' and 'DS' I believe, whereas the EVO and STI are 'AS' cars)
