Yo,

I'm not an SCCA guy, but it really seems very strange to me that they will not allow a strictly SAFETY item like a HOOP.  Same comment for stronger Driveshaft.

Neither change will give you any speed/handling advantage during a race, so what's the gripe?

BTW:
  • You wrote on 2/18/07 about the broken parts: "...driveshafts that mate a five speed to a four speed rear end must be fabricated for the job since that wasn't a factory part or combination. I imagine this one was just not up to the job."  So this was not a stock Driveshaft.
  • And on 3/23/07 "The driveshaft I'm going to have made and plan to have a high dollar/strong drive shaft made too - don't want to see anything like that again.  You are proposing a modified Driveshaft.
So, do they allow mods or not?  I'm a bit confused here.......


Guess there are lots of reasons that I'm not in the SCCA, but on top of the list is stupid rules.


Safety first !
