Alltrack/GSW 4Motion SCCA Run Group?

Read through the rules and references, seems like the Alltrack and GSW 4Mo still aren't classified. There is no way I'd be competitive in STU, but the Mk7R is STU. The AWD gives me a massive advantage over GTI/Golfs with similar power in STH and the rest of the class would be even further behind!

I'll only be doing one or two events, but I don't want someone to feel cheated or screwed over.

Current mods:
APR ECU/TCU (Stage 1)
18x8 Neuspeed RSe52
225/40R18 Federal 595SS (200TW)
EBC YellowStuff Pads
Neuspeed Stainless Brake Lines(not yet installed)

Very soon mods:
BC BRs or Eibach Golf R Estate Springs

STH would be my guess, based on their definition of the catch-all car: < 2.5L forced induction 4 passenger sedan or coupe not otherwise classified (NOC). Other than the tune your car is stock. The faster cars you will be competing against will have every bolt-on known to man.

The AWD Audi TT is probably a decent car for that class since it is relatively light, can comfortably run a 265 tire, and street touring permits a stage 2 tune.

Just want to point out that with some simple but smart mods you can wreak havoc on track with an Alltrack. Just lowered ours on MSS and its a riot. The balance on those is super fun to play with.

stock shocks? You're near my in syracuse. My worry is in the winter I can't raise it back up easily and I'd want to since the car would become a snow plow.
