Most tracks have environmentally safe disposal stations onsite—ask Lemons HQ or any track official for locations. Keep your fuel in a secure, shady place outside the garage, and always refuel your hooptie in the open air.
The minimum acceptable wheelbase is 82 inches as delivered by the factory. These plans inevitably require extensive, high-quality engineering; lots of new material; and huge amounts of high-quality fabrication. Cars with compromised OE crush structures are exceedingly likely to fail tech.
Or Lambo doors, or anything else that will trap you inside when you roll. Professionally-made full rollcage required. A poorly built, improperly mounted, or badly engineered rollcage will keep you from racing: Cages originally created as bolt-ins are not allowed. At minimum, cage must include: Each major loadbearing member must be formed from a single, continuous tube.
Dash bars are very strongly encouraged.
Prices & Rules
Minimum tubing size for cars weighing under pounds as raced is 1. Cars weighing over pounds as raced must use a minimum tubing size of 1.
Properly bent, racecar-grade and -quality tubing is mandatory: All cyumpcar plates must be mild steel, at least 24 square inches, and at least. All roll cage tubing must be padded with high-density rollbar padding wherever a driver may contact the tube—head, knees, elbows, etc. All attachment points on the vehicle must be selected and reinforced as necessary so that, in an accident, the cage will not punch through, tear, or grossly distort the attachment point.
Cages mounted to rusty, thin, under-supported, or otherwise stupid attachment points will flunk tech immediately. No backstay, spreader plate, or other rollcage element can extend past the rear edge of urles back tire.
In exceptionally rare cases, very tiny cars may require a different solution—contact Lemons HQ well in advance. Separate structures to protect fuel tanks, etc.
Whether the door bars are parallel or Rupes, the top edge of the highest bar and bottom edge of the lowest bar must be at least 7. All cars must have passenger-side door bars meeting the same rules though not necessarily using the same design as drivers-side door bars. One-piece, purpose-built racing seats with properly located, factory-provided shoulder-harness holes are mandatory. Molded plastic seats of ABS or similar material are not allowed.
All seats must be very securely mounted to the floor or cage to avoid separation during a crash. All seatbacks must be restrained against rearward failure. Permanently attached seatback braces are very strongly recommended, but must always be ruels to the seat type. If a seatback brace is not used, a strong, seat-width element such as a shoulder-harness bar must be located within six inches of the seatback to prevent the seat from failing rearward.
All seats, including seats on adjustable tracks, must show minimal looseness and no back-and-forth freeplay. All seats must be strong enough to withstand major impacts from any angle.
The headrest area must be strong enough not to bend in a heavy rear impact. Harnesses with expiration dates are not valid after the expiration date. Harnesses with chumlcar manufacture date but no expiration date are acceptable for two years after manufacture. Shoulder harnesses must be two totally separate belts with separate mounting points ie, single-point Y-belts are not allowed.
When viewed from above, shoulder harnesses should be closer at their mounting points than at their seat-entry points. All lap belts must be standard 2-inch or 3-inch width. Grade 8 or better hardware and 2. Anti-submarine belt s should be mounted vertically.
If vertical mounting is impractical, the mounting point should be located behind, not ahead of, the belt buckle. All sliders should be snugged up to their mounting plates or harness bars as much as possible. Belts should be neatly and evenly folded when passing through narrower hardware, such as 3-inch belts passing through 2-inch mounting plates. On snap-end-type belt mounts, restrain the snap arm with a cotter pin or safety wire through the hole in the arm.
A properly plumbed, fully charged, securely mounted SFI- or FIA-certified onboard fire suppression system with agent-appropriate nozzles is mandatory. Minimum acceptable is a 5-lb system covering the driver compartment and engine compartment.
Highly preferred is a lb system covering the driver compartment, engine compartment, and fuel storage area. All fire-suppression systems and components must meet all manufacturer-recommended design, installation, inspection, certification, re-inspection, replacement, and recharging guidelines and schedules.
Teams are solely responsible for ensuring the proper installation, inspection, and maintenance of all fire-suppression systems.
