  • New rules?

    Do we have an online version of the rules that were passed at the CACC AGM? It's time to get serious about the Talon. Past experience has taught me that it would be ideal to have a list of the mods and the points associated with them listed on a piece of paper so that when the protests fly, we're not caught off-gaurd.

    Also, I noticed some interesting rule changes, specifically to aerodynamics. I want to ensure that I read them myself to understand them.

    Thanks,

    Approved 2002 CACC Solo Rule Changes

    Approved Rule Change #1

    Competitor's name: Mike Leuty
    CACC License #: 01-227
    Date: Nov. 5, 2001
    Current rule number: 5.8.F
    Rule to be changed: Re-runs shall be granted only for timer failure (as described in 5.7.L), persons on course, or hazardous objects on course.
    Change to read: Re-runs shall be granted only for timer failure (as described in 5.8.L), persons on course, hazardous objects on course, or stopping for a displaced cone.
    Author's intent: (a) Timer failure is referenced in 5.8.L, not 5.7.L.
    (b) Codifies current practice of allowing a rerun if competitor stops for a displaced cone. The SCCA rule says timer failure or object on course; it’s not specific about downed cones, but probably should be.

    Approved Rule Change #2

    Competitor's name: Mike Leuty
    CACC License #: 01-227
    Date: Nov. 5, 2001
    Current rule number: 5.8.F
    Rule to be changed: Re-runs shall be administered as in 5.7.G.
    Change to read: Re-runs shall be administered as in 5.8.G.
    Author's intent: Reruns are discussed in 5.8.G, not 5.7.G.
    NOTE: Perhaps a search should be done on references to section 5.7. Apparently, a section was added which moved 5.7 to 5.8 and references were not updated.

    Approved Rule Change #3

    Competitor's name: Mike Leuty
    CACC License #: 01-227
    Date: Nov. 5, 2001
    Current rule number: 5.8.G
    Rule to be changed: There shall be a five minute or five car space between runs made by the same car either by two drivers or by the same driver.
    Change to read: There shall be a five minute space between runs made by the same car either by two drivers or by the same driver.
    Author's intent: The old SCCA rule was five minutes or 10 cars (a 5-car space is only a couple of minutes; at 30-seconds spacing, 10 cars approximate 5 minutes). However, to simplify keeping track, the rule (7.4) was changed in 2001 to do away with the number of cars and just make it 5 minutes.

    Date: Nov. 5, 2001
    Current rule number: 6.3.D
    Rule to be changed: “i) The shock absorber may be substituted, provided the number, type (i.e. lever, telescopic, etc.) system of attachment, and vehicle attachment points are not altered unless otherwise authorized. Additionally, on vehicles with strut-type suspension the strut may be modified in order to facilitate the installation of a substitute shock absorber provided such modifications serve no other function and in no way alter any other suspension component or its location. Shock absorbers may not incorporate coil-over load-supporting devices unless fitted as standard equipment.”
    Change to read: “ii) Shock Absorbers
    a) The make of shock absorber may be substituted providing that the number, type (e.g., tube, lever, etc.), system of attachment and attachment points are not altered. Substituted shock absorbers may provide no more than two external damping adjustments.
    b) The mounting hardware shall be the original type. To facilitate the Installation of commonly available aftermarket shock absorbers, struts, or strut inserts whose shaft is larger than the center hole of an upper mount assembly, that hole may be enlarged by the minimum amount necessary to accommodate the shock shaft size, provided the following restrictions are met:
    (i) the enlarged hole must remain concentric with that of the original configuration;
    (ii) the enlargement of the hole does not require modification of a bearing (as opposed to a washer, plate, or sleeve);
    (iii) neither the hole enlargement nor the location of the shock shaft changes any alignment parameter.
    (iv) Bump stops installed externally and concentric with the shaft of a shock absorber may be drilled out to fit larger-diameter shock shafts. Bump Stops with similar characteristics to those of the original may be substituted for the purpose of installing aftermarket shock absorbers.
    c) The use of any shock absorber bushing material, including metal, is permitted. This does not permit the use of an offset shock absorber bushing.
    d) The interchange of gas and hydraulic shock absorbers is permitted. Electronically controlled shocks may not be used on vehicles not originally equipped with such units. Vehicles originally equipped with electronically controlled shocks may use non-electronically controlled alternatives.
    e) Shock absorbers with adjustable spring perches which have been welded in the stock position on the shock absorber are permitted.
    f) The dimensional characteristics of the shock and relative placement of the spring must remain as stock. If the spring perch on an aftermarket shock/strut is a small amount (e.g. 1/4") lower than the standard part, but the shock/strut otherwise complies with the requirements of this Section, a shim may be added to the spring perch to raise the spring base to the correct height. This shim must be permanently attached to the perch.”
    Author's intent: To update the shock rule and permit the use of high performance shocks/struts to permit the use of current/available shock/strut configurations.
