Rule T12-1-13 still applies and will incur the 1 month suspension.
The SNZ directors are concerned about
the direction some chassis builders are taking with new Ministocks.
Ministock chassis and rollcages are deviating away from the original
plans to the extent that some Ministocks are vastly different to
the original plans.
explanation of rule T14 that includes:- "The centre hole of
the wheel must fit the hub" refers to OEM wheels, i.e. the
OEM wheel must fit the hub with out modifications.This clause does
not include fabricated centres.
The specifications referred to labeled "D","E",
and "F" are minimum measurement specifications.
no a 'agitator' type reinforced steel wheel centres approved by
explains the minimum offset or bend permitted within the centre

Re Page 215 clause
- "Front and rear standard suspension systems must be unaltered,
however their mounting points are free"
The above clause
permits the use of suitable material to locate the upper suspension
bearing so long as the said location material does not increase
the strength of the chassis indicated in the plans. The "material"

There is an important
problem with the rules regarding the T13-1-10 rear floor bars and
the T13-1-9 (b) bars. the words pertaining to these two bars do
not support the illustration on page 188 of the 2000 SNZ rule book.
If one reads the
rules carefully one will read that the 13-1-9 (b) bars are not permitted
to be attached to the 13-1-10 bars. The words do in fact only allow
the 13-1-9 (b) bars to be attached to the floor or chassis.
The directors are
aware that 95% of Streetstocks were built last season with the two
sets of bars joined at the rear and that 95% of Streetstocks are
going to be built this way.If Streetstocks were built according
to the words as written in the rules they would be unsafe. The Directors
have agreed that the rear bars of the Streetstock should be built
as per the illustration on page 188 of the 2000 rule book. The following
clause has been added to the Streetstock specifications to clarify
the situation until next conference.
The T13-1-9 (b)
bar may be attached to the T13-1-10 rear floor bar.
In this instance
the extra joining bar at the rear of the T13-1-9 (b) bar is not
on page 188 in this situation indicates part of the rear bumper.
