Autocross legality (ST) of deadset kit?

Not OEM in the US, so that doesn't help. Also, ST doesn't allow updating and backdating.

You can do either top mounts OR LCA, not both, period.

I got over -2 with just Eurosport camber kit.
Meaning you can’t fit a newer revision of the same part?
That’s an extremely specific rule.

Welcome to SCCA classing. They get pretty far into the weeds unfortunately
Yeah, giant pain in the ass. I'd love if they update the rules to be more end-product specific rather than component specific, at least for suspension.

IE, street touring would allow up to +/-2 deg camber from factory alignment allowance, +/-1 degree caster, +/-1" wheelbase, +/-1.5" ride height (hub to fender), and all bushings must be rubber/urethane and same type. Other than that, doesn't matter how you get there.

Also means that any protest could be evaluated quickly on any alignment setup, rather than having to disassemble and review part numbers vs build dates...

That is a pain. I’m on the panel in the state championship I run in. So I have some influence over the rules. We made a change for the upcoming season just like what you propose. We replaced a specific rule stating on how you could attain more neg camber, with a line that basically says max -3deg and we don’t care how you get it.
