Nancy -- 201.913 mph record on a production ZX15!


WWW
« on: November 26, 2012, 09:40:01 PM »

Here they are, fresh from Dan Warner.  He deserves another great round of applause for getting these changes out to all of us as early as they are.  I intend to put them here and also on the home page of the site -- so everyone, not just the Forum folks, get easily find and view them.

Cars here, and bikes in the next post.  I'll do it that way 'cause the list is a few pages long.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TIMING ASSOCIATION
2013 rule changes, general and cars

Changes in bold.

SECTION 1   GENERAL COMPETITION REQUIREMENTS
1.A   TECHNICAL INSPECTION:

Add new paragraph:
During the safety inspection, the Technical Inspection Committee may assign a speed limit to the vehicle. A sticker will be applied to the vehicle and the speed limit noted in the log book. This sticker must remain in place until the vehicle is made to conform to the published rules of the class.

1.F   QUALIFYING:
Add new sentence:
At Bonneville a rookie driver/rider may qualify for a record on their rookie run if the existing record is less than 150 MPH.

SECTION 2   CAR COMPETITION SPECIFICATIONS
2.F   TIRES:

The use of any non-rated tire(s) such as implement, farm, aircraft, reproduction of a vintage automobile or motorcycle tire, 17” drag race tires or any non-pneumatic wheel/tire combination (no rubber) shall be submitted for approval to the contest board in writing 45 days prior to an event.

SECTION 3   TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS & REQUIREMENTS
3.D.2   SEAT BELTS:

Minimum 5 point seat belts meeting SFI specification 16.1 or SFI specification 16.5, quick release, competition type seat belts are mandatory in all categories. …

3.E   DRIVER’S COMPARTMENT:
Add new paragraph:
Beginning January 1, 2014:
All driver’s compartments shall not be open to the exterior of the vehicle or track surface such that the driver is potentially exposed to dangers such as fire or debris as well as dust. A rear floor or aft bulkhead is required in all vehicles where applicable.


3.K   BATTERIES:
All batteries shall be properly secured with metal framework and fasteners. Plastic tie-downs are not allowed. Batteries may be mounted in the driver’s compartment if sealed in an acid spill-proof box. Dry cell type batteries(Optima, Odyssey, etc.) are exempt from this rule.

3.Q   FIRE EXTINGUISHING SYSTEMS:
All cars and enclosed motorcycles shall have a minimum of one driver-controlled fire extinguishing system using a minimum of 5 lbs. of extinguishing agent designed and applied to function as driver protection. Approved agents include Halon 1301, Halon 1211, DuPont FE36, and certain AFFF systems including Cold Fire 302, ESS Foam, Firefox Gem Foam or other Halon replacement certified by the manufacturer for use in a confined space. Dry chemical and CO2 may be used in the engine compartment only. The application and installation shall be in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations for the size and shape of the driver’s compartment. The discharge rate should be designed to allow sufficient protection for the time it will take the car to stop from speed.
NOTE: Care and consideration shall be taken to prevent driver suffocation. Fresh air venting or breathing systems may be necessary.

ALL CARS and MOTORCYCLE STREAMLINERS, 0-200 MPH shall have a total of 10 lbs. extinguishing agent onboard. At least 5 lbs. must serve the driver area and the additional 5 lbs. may serve the engine area or a combination of the driver and engine areas. Both areas shall be served via fixed nozzles. Acceptable agents in the engine area include CO2, foam, Halon, a Halon replacement or dry chemical. The engine system shall generally include 2 nozzles directed toward the header/oil pan area or be installed according to manufactures recommendation. Only Halon or Halon replacement agents may be used in the driver’s compartment (see above paragraph).

ALL VEHICLES OVER 200 MPH, because of the additional time required to stop, shall be equipped with additional extinguishing agent (in addition to the 5 lbs. minimum) which is designed and fitted for driver protection. The installation should be commensurate with driver compartment size and the speed of the vehicle. Contact a reputable safety equipment manufacturer for installation advice.
Minimum Agent Requirements:

0-200    MPH   10 lbs. min.   Driver & engine
201+    MPH   11 lbs. min.   Over 5 lbs. for driver

NOTE: The amount of required agent should not be confused with total bottle weight.

All competition vehicle extinguishing system control valves shall be within the reach of the driver while strapped in position. The valves shall be designed to remain open once actuated. All agent lines and nozzles shall be metal and securely mounted. Extinguishing agent cylinders within the driver’s compartment shall be mounted with a system more substantial than hose clamps alone. The use of hose clamps as a primary mounting system is prohibited.
A current inspection/filling certification (no more than 24 months old) for each agent bottle shall be visible to the technical inspector without removing the bottle.
NOTE: Agent delivery lines are subject to dust and moisture clogging. Participants are responsible to assure that the fire system is full and operable before each event. Frequent clearing of the lines is recommended. Aqueous foam systems require that the nozzles be directed appropriately so that the agent does not impede the vision of the driver. Questions concerning fire-extinguishing systems may be directed to the Gaseous Fuel & Fire Extinguishing System Specialist, section 16.
All push/recovery/support vehicles are required to have a minimum of one 4 lb. portable fire extinguisher.

3.U   WINDOWS AND WINDSHIELDS:
Add new sentence:
The original roll up window hole may be closed in replacing the frameless glass window with polycarbonate.

3.W   BRAKES:
Add new sentence:
No front wheel brakes only systems are allowed.

4.R   HOOD SCOOPS:

A hood scoop is a functional air intake device used on full body, un-blown vehicles, where allowed. No part of a forward facing hood scoop can extend forward of the leading edge of the hood, be more than 11” above the surface of the hood at the centerline or extend past the trailing edge of the hood more than 11” at the centerline.

4.X   ROOF RAILS:
A piece of metal angle, perpendicular to the roof, and a minimum of ½ in. high to a maximum of ¾ in. high.  The roof rail shall be attached to the roof on each side as close to the outside edge as possible. The roof rails shall be parallel from the front to the rear. The roof rails may extend from the base of the windshield to the base of the rear window.  Roof Rails shall be installed on any Coupe, Sedan or truck when the existing class records exceeds 200 MPH.

Here are the 2013 rule changes for bikes.  this set is only about two full pages - don't go looking for more, like you might have found on the car list.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA TIMING ASSOCIATION
2013 rules changes, motorcycles
Changes are in bold

7.A   GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MOTORCYCLES
7.A.6  Rule Changes:

Add new sentence:
ALL REQUESTS FOR DEVIATIONS TO CURRENT RULES SHALL BE SUBMITTED TO THE CONTEST BOARD NO LATER THAN 45 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT FOR REVIEW.

7.B   MOTORCYCLE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS & REQUIREMENTS:
7.B.8   Tire Requirements:
All H, V, Z, ZR or lower rated tires shall have been produced within the last 10 years as of the date of the current event.
Sidewall date coding will be checked.

7.C   RIDING APPAREL:
7.C.2   Leathers:

One-piece or two-piece 350 deg. (zipped together) all leather is required and the zipper must be sewn to the leather. Limited perforations and cloth or non-cloth panels are allowed in the armpit and at the back of the knee. No single panel can be larger than a total of 12 square inches each. Fairing (leather or cloth only) on the back of leathers is allowed in partial streamlined classes only.

7.D   CLASSIFICATION of DISPLACEMENTS, FRAMES, ENGINES, and ENGINE TYPES:
7.D.3   Engine Displacement Classes:

Displacement shall be greater than the maximum allowable for the next lower class.  To permit minor reconditioning of worn cylinder blocks in classes other than Production, it is permitted to increase cylinder bore diameter .020 in. (.508 mm) beyond that which provides maximum displacement for the class only if the OEM bore diameter is within .020 in. (.508 mm) of the maximum class displacement. In all cases, the resulting displacement shall be exceeded to qualify for the next higher class.  The .020 in. (.508 mm) will be discounted for record certification and will be noted on the certification card and in the logbook.
Vintage engines are allowed +.050 in. overbore, see section 7.J.10.

7.E   PRODUCTION - P
7.E.1.6   Lighting Equipment and Instruments:

Shall be exactly the same as fitted to the original model when it was sold. Adjustable headlights must have the lens mounted in the vertical position. Reflectors, turn signal lights, and their supporting brackets may be removed only if not integrated with the body fairing. To avoid heat buildup, lamps may be rendered inoperative. Non-OEM switches, gauges, instruments or controls are not permitted, except for required safety equipment.

7.G   SPECIAL CONSTRUCTION – A, APS
The Special Construction class is intended for purpose-built race bikes, not production bikes with minor modifications. A special construction frame is unlimited in design, except for the class requirements of this section. This class includes factory produced road racing or any other racing “works” models.

Bikes in this class must have either a full APS fairing or two of the following:

-- Two or more engines
-- Unlimited engine displacement
-- Seat base lower than top of rear tire with the rider seated on the bike
-- Design items not permitted in the Modified Production class
-- Center hub steering


7.G.9   Engine:
A maximum of 4 engines of unlimited displacement are permitted.


7.G.10    Open Class – Special Construction - A
Add new last paragraph:
It shall be possible to see all of the rider from either side. As viewed directly from above, it shall be possible to see all of the rider except for the legs and feet. It is forbidden to use any transparent material to avoid the application of these rules.

7.H   STREAMLINER - S
Add new last paragraph:
Prior to starting construction it is strongly suggested that the constructor submit final design prints to the Technical Committee for evaluation of compliance with rules and safety considerations.

7.I   SIDECAR - SC
7.I.3   Driver Location:

The rider shall operate the sidecar outfit with motorcycle type handlebars from a position which places his centerline between the front and rear drive treads. The rider must be visible from the hips to the shoulders from the side view and be able to exit the outfit without restriction, unless in compliance with enclosed streamliner rules.

7.J   ENGINE CLASSES
7.J.10   Class VG and VF:

Same as Class G or F, except that the class is limited to motorcycle engines produced prior to 1956.
For reasons of historical authenticity, vintage engine modifications are restricted to older technology levels as far as practical. Accordingly, in classes VF, VG, VBF and VBG newer technologies such as EFI, or electronic reactive ignition systems are not in keeping with the spirit of the Vintage classes and are not allowed. Computers are allowed for data collection purposes only.
Engines shall utilize OEM crankcase, OEM cylinders on flatheads and two strokes and OEM heads on OHV engines. Above components made after 1955 and exact reproductions may be considered legal in Vintage classes if they offer no competitive advantage. Pre installation approval by the contest board is required. It is the entrant’s responsibility to provide documentation and samples. A .050 in. overbore is allowed on vintage engines only (including production vintage) only if the OEM bore diameter is within .050 in. (.508 mm) of maximum class displacement and will be discounted when the bore size is measured.
Flathead engine displacement will be discounted 33 1/3% in determining engine displacement class limits. For example, a 1500cc measured displacement would run as a 1000cc.

Yep - I've just noticed that the bold print didn't make it through to the post.  Lemme see if I can get it there for you.

Dang -- not right away can I get 'em in bold where they should be.  I'll work on it and get back to you.  Sorry for right now.

In the revised rules for partially streamlined bikes, I see the following: "It shall be possible to see all of the rider from either side.."  I guess that means that now the hands and forearms must be exposed.  Making it even tougher to build a bike to conform to AMA/BUB and SCTA rules. I wonder what precipitated this change.  I had been contemplating running at SCTA to see if the fully enclosed tail (not legal at AMA/BUB) would help, but now it seems I'll have to bring a jig saw with me as well.

I wasn't able to figure out how to boldify the changes, so have sent it out to the boldifiers.com shop for matriculation.  I hope to get it fixed today.  Sorry -  cry

Tom, The wording is for A, not APS, and I do see how you are confused.  The language should be the same in APS other than you cannot use clear streamlining to circumvent the rule, which someone did.

I'll call Matt to make sure the rule book has a better clarification.

Someone thinks someone will bring out an old roadster run something besides a Chevrolet because you can't run aftermarket blocks and heads.

It remains to be seen whether an old roadster needing $5-10K in upgrades will run and old Pontiac, Olds, Buick, Cad, Mopar, etc or sell their old engine to a restorer and spend the $$ to bring it back.

Someone better have every GM part/casting # before 1974 along with all the other manufacturers before it gets out of hand like everything else does. I would have restricted valve lift to .550" or .600 and that would have helped......I wish them luck............................JD

I assume this is a class for a destroked 60's oval port BBC with .800" or more lift and 2.190's with good porting?  And a hand built tunnel ram with dual quads? 

Or am I way off?
