Did anybody get the 2006 hobby rules in the mail yet? Was just wondering if there were any changes for next year.

No "Y" type shoulder harnesses.
Front body mounts must be visible.
Trunk floor directly over rear axle must be removed.
Any item deemed as ballast most be removed. I.e. those 1/4" steel battery boxes and fuel cells.
Any steel motor mount can be used.
Aluminum or steel water pumps are OK.
Exhaust manifolds and pipes go with claim.


Good luck,
Superdave

What exactly do you guys think they mean by "front body mount" ? Do they mean the rubber bushing or just the metal parts?

I e mailed kirk, they mean the metal body mount.

Which is a problem since almost all chassis builders remove the lf one at least and attatch the foot protection bar there. Its only logical to do it this way as thats the outer most part of the frame and also as far forward as you can get.

look at the Jet stock car pick in speedway magazine theres is exactly the same as most every other cage around.

The motor mounts only include the fronts, still no rear motor mounts in hobbys, I guess those of us who build cars are supposed to be psychic and know that.

It never amazes me that IMCA finds something to add to the rules and yet cant add it with the correct wording, its not that hard. There are still rules they made up last year and put in the newsletters that are not in the written rules.

"Any steel front motor mounts, no rear motor mounts or midplates"

If I hadnt emailed kirk I would have put side mounts in the hobby Im building right now.

As it is I have to put body mounts back in the stock car Im building.

What are they looking for on the rearend? Making it easier to tech or what? I noticed the streetstocks had the same thing in the rules.

By any steel mount does that mean the standard streetstock style mounts are now legal? By that I mean the flat style.
