Unrealistic shaped cages designed to exploit the rules below are not permitted. Maximum cage width at driver halo, down tubes, and top frame rail: 3.600". Minimum cage height is 6.00” while maximum cage height 6.25" from top of chassis to top of cage at highest point. Rear “down tubes” must slant forward. All cage and body components such as cage, bumpers, nerf bars, hoods, side panels, tanks, etc. must be mounted on the centerline of the cage. Chassis may not extend outside of the side panels by more than 1/4" on either side.
Bumpers – A tubular front bumper must be used and may not be designed to direct air or create downforce. Maximum height of front bumper is 1.5” from the bottom of the lowest point of the chassis. Scale appearing side nerf bars must be used on both sides of the car. A scale appearing rear hoop style bumper must be used. Bumpers and nerf bars must be made of rounded stock with no sharp edges.
Tail tank – A traditional scale appearing rounded style three dimensional rear fuel cell must be used. A rectangle (Swindell) style rear tank is allowed but must have a proper style rear bumper to go with it. You can not simply have a flat tail section with no bumper.
