TOPIC: 2015 Rule Change Decisions

2015 Rule Change Decisions 7 years, 8 months ago #18887

While these need to be approved by NASA, I wanted to give you guys a heads up on what is going in the rules draft for 2015. After much discussion, the following decisions were reached by the series directors.

1)Pedal - pass. The foot pedals (i.e. brake, clutch, gas) may be modified for driver comfort and accessibility. Pedal spacers are limited to 3" off of the factory metal pedal. The wording is taken from the SM rules, With the additional limit of a 3" max.

2) Shifters. Denied. We will make a note that the shift lever (only) from Only 944's is an acceptable factory alternative:

3) Modified dyno rule - pass
11.3.2 Competitors may top off engine fluids under the direct supervision of a NASA official. Oil may not be added past the full mark on the correct OEM dipstick

4) No max water temp. on dyno - request denied.

5) No rule change on cryogenic treatments. It remains illegal by default, except for rotors (as previously specified in the rules- request denied

6) No rule change on transmission oil cooler - request denied.

7) Bring in this statement from the CCR into our rules in section 3 "format": Any modification(s) to performance items, whether it is a performance advantage or not, will be termed “illegal."

8) Wide angle mirror - pass.
6.5: Advisory: A wide angle rear view mirror is strongly recommended.

9) Adopt the definition of one full car width + 6 inches for "racing room", to supercede the 3/4 car width. Pass
Modified "racing room" definition:
In the NASA CCR, under section 25.4.2 "Punting," the rules define "racing room" as: "at least
three-quarters of one car width." For racing between two or more 944 Spec cars, "racing room" is hereby defined as: "at least one car width plus 6 inches." "Racing surface" is defined to include curbing. Drivers should note that not all curbing is safely usable, and plan passes accordingly.

10) Clarify 17.3.12 - Unused wiring, fuse box, brackets, nuts, bolts and studs may be removed.
