  1. NM license 19412. Nearly every trunk mounted cell I see is in a metal box. Metal was cut away, and more was put back. Sounds exactly like the "containment zone" as you described it.
  2. Yeah, as with several of my tech desk items, I submitted it so I would have proof that you can't do it, and instead got a surprise.
  3. I don't believe it was ever made public, but I have a tech desk ruling that says the opposite. For those with access, see ticket 366. If I cut the floor pan out of the trunk to install a fuel cell, is it permissible to repurpose the removed material elsewhere for free? Reply byJay Mauney»6-May-2020 10:43pm Please submit your year make and model as required. Also sent pictures of the material. Photos of where it was removed from and what you intend to do with the material. NOTE: If you remove material and then replace it with new materia
  4. Uhh... A lower swap weight would make that less likely... check your own comment regarding the CRX.
  5. E46 Starts at 450 pts for the 323 (which I believe was the most competitive example). As for the exhaust, I expect most use the E36/E39 manifold as allowed in the Tech Desk. I'm watching things closely given Dana's Bravo Flag video. That allowance seems a lot like one of the "internet things" that won't fly much longer. The unpublished transmission swap allowance is also getting renewed scrutiny.
  6. I'm not a fan of vehicle specific allowances, but there is a tech desk ruling stating that the E46 can use any transmission from that chassis. As far as I know, the 5-speed ZF box in the 330 is the same as the 328. Other than the ratio, I think the 328 diff is the same as the 323, so you might be able to get by with just a 328 driveshaft. It's very much not clear to me if the driveshaft would be points (though I've seen posts elsewhere on the forum stating it's not).
  7. "for years" and GBU C3 do not jive. If you take the discussion at face value, there had to be (or still is) another car.
  8. I don't understand this logic... it's easy to check a clutch with a borescope, but you can't use the same to check the flywheel? Regarding having to pull the transmission, is there any car on the VPI list where you can't see the flywheel if you pull the starter? Sure the location is inconvenient on a lot of cars, but still far easier than pulling the transmission.
  9. I gather this rule is not always followed, but 40 pts should be 6 laps at Sebring.
  10. Maybe everyone else already knew, but I have an unpublished tech desk ruling that says the Stewart high performance water pump (BMW M5X engine) is zero points.
  11. Best to submit to the tech desk. The BMW E46 gets the E36 manifold for free (easy removal of cats), so there is precedent for this.
  12. No mention of the UNpublished rulings however...
  13. Regarding active aero, the statement included in the annual meeting was "Ban Aftermarked Active Aero", seems the tech desk version is what made the final cut however.
