Page F236

Those of you building race cars that aren't going to be ready for a log book by 1/1/03, need to read the new rules regarding roll cage construction

Specifically, the rules now requiring NASCAR style door bar protection on the drivers side.

Additionally, rules now require DOM tubing, ERW is no longer permitted.

Read these rules carefully, there may be more things listed that I haven't yet noted as significant..

Careful, Silk, I think I only see the requirement of NASCAR door bars in the Touring section.

You are correct about the use of ERW tubing though.

Um, we use touring rules, as I recall.. According to GCR 18.2, the rules list cages as Showroom Stock/Touring. Unless something changes to break those apart, those are the rules we conform to..

I think what the Fastrack has done is actually separate the two. I will be interesting to see what happens.

LOL.. If I lived in atherton, I'd damn well afford something better than that Trans Am

OTOH, I spend all my money racing

So are you coming up for the SFR closer at Sears?

lived in cambell at winchester and williams for a few years, dont know yet if finances will allow me to go to sears yet. have two hours on motor now, sounds real good. need to put few more on it then put it on chassis dyno at 7's only racing to dial it in and scale it. I will probly spend the fall/winter getting practice in and catch the opener at t-hill. missed you guys this summer, the only thing worse than having no race car is having one thats broken. hey, how do you put your car picture into your user name? I know as a net adm you know how, send me an email and ill reply back with the password and picture and since your such a swell guy youll do it for me.

Glad to hear it's running again

To put your picture in the sig, you need a very small copy of your picture. Send me a copy and I'll shrink it for you.
