For instance, in CASC, they want dyno plots so that a car with an engine swap netting 20hp (like an M50 E30) will not be in the same class as a stock GT2 (530).

The CASC car classification site is free and it has just about every conceivable car. Then you go through a simple series of questions asking you what mods you have, and it spits out the class for you. So maybe next year, time trial entries would be required to present their CASC classification results (and then have common sense applied to whether or not it's sandbagged), then perhaps group cars together that are close enough, to not have too many classes. So like if you have 5 cars, 1 Prepared, 2 Modified, 3 SGT1, then maybe put them all in Mod... etc.
Very good point. They use that P.I.P system which you can do it all online. With each mod being a certain point and your car stock has so many points tio start. But I doubt people wanting to do that are going to each class by points and really pin point each class before the show. There should be some designation though. Certain HP is automatically in a different class and so on and so forth. But BigD is right when it comes to the classifications in Solo1 with the CASC.
