djsteviec Posted January 19, 2019 Report Share Posted January 19, 2019 (edited) 126.96.36.199. Any fuel, oil, or coolant lines (including Aeroquip steel braided lines) (Effective 4/26/2019) that pass through the driving compartment must be metal or encased in continuous steel conduit or aluminum tube. (Flex- conduit is not acceptable. (Effective 4/26/2019) Lines wrapped in aluminum tape are not acceptable.) Really?? I get the fuel, it ignites from vapor and the flame travels with it. Coolant/water is not flammable and oil needs fire or an extreme heat source, which is not in the cockpit! I have had my Accusump on my passenger floor since I started racing in my old CR-X. The new car has the Accusump mounted on the tunnel and the line runs along the pass side tunnel and through the FW. How is this possibly a safety issue? On top of that, it is an electronic pressure valve control, so the oil is not getting hot and circulating through the engine. There is no room to enclose it and no other series does this. I would be EC with the new car, but if the oil line needs to be enclosed, I guess I can no longer race in Champ.
