In road racing they have manufacturer supported spec classes where everything on the car is controlled. Spec RX-7, Spec Miata, and spec racer ford are tremendously competitive classes where you can theoretically keep the expenses down as there is not an arms race to get the most horsepower. So why not a spec neon, focus or Golf class, where engine mods, suspension, tires, Trans, and wt are all strictly controlled? Perhaps we could even get one of the manufacturers behind it? This might cut down on the expenses enough to allow more people to rally and create a really competitive class.
