« on: January 23, 2015, 07:37:02 PM »

Burly sent these along via email, so I'll post them here (on the Forum) for everyone to see.

 Please find below (and attached above) the revised copy of the 2015 36hp & VW Challenge Guidelines correcting an important typo I made related to the new USFRA use of E85 gasoline now allowed in the 130/150 Mile Per Hour Club racing at Bonneville.

                    2015 International 36hp Challenge
36hp and SSSBB ENGINE/CAR Guidelines
                         (36hp also called 30hp outside of U.S.)
 
                           Current As Of 1/25/15 (revised)
 
 
36hp ENGINE CATEGORIES
 
BASIC 36hp ENGINE: 36hp (25hp) engine case (block) with cylinder head studs in stock 36hp locations (the stock large 10mm studs can be replaced by smaller 8mm studs for additional cylinder clearance), original VW 36hp head, Okrasa, Denzel and new Wolfsburg West Okrasa replica aftermarket 36hp heads with or without modifications are allowed (40hp, 1300, 1500 or 1600cc VW or Porsche based heads are not allowed except in the “1” Club category and as such, speeds achieved with these engines will not be eligible for NEWPORT TROPHY recognition !). Above applies to all classes except Stone Stock-SS. All engine sheet metal, to include a “functioning generator and cooling fan” are mandatory in all engine classes including LAKESTER 36 except “UNLTD36” along with stock 36hp or period 36hp aluminum valve covers and gaskets(replica alloy valve covers for 36hp heads are O.K.!). Transmission must be a Volkswagen 4 speed swing axle or I.R.S. (non-synchro or full-synchro) original or modified Bug transmission (five speed conversions, Porsche and Hewland style transmissions not permissible except in the UNLTD36 category!). The front end may be lowered using commonly available VW axle beams, spindles (lowered struts on Super Beetle bodied racers) or devices “excluding NARROWED axle beams” in ALL classes (narrowed beams are O.K. "only" in the “1” Club category!). Front and rear sway bars or camber compensators are acceptable and “Moon Disc” style hub cabs when securely installed following USFRA, ECTA, LTA, Texas Mile, or DRLA Speedweek guidelines may be used in ALL classes including Stone Stock-SS. Above guidelines DO NOT APPLY to cars running for “1” CLUB recognition ONLY! For BIG BLOCK 40hp, 1300, 1500, and 1600cc engines, see the SSSBB section for engine guidelines! SSSBB and all other dual carbureted, turbo or supercharged engines big block VW racers top speeds are recorded in separate non 36hp body style specific categories!
 
NOTE:   “NO NITROUS”, or fuel may be used in USFRA 130/150 MPH Club competition. Race gas & high octane pump gas is O.K. as is E85 pump gas.
(2015 130/150 MPH Club  Revision: E-85 pump gas is NOW ALLOWED ! ! ! ).  Should NOX or any fuels other than pump gasoline, E85 pump gasoline or racing gasoline be used in 36hp based engines, all speeds recorded will be moved to the “1” Club category with the exception of the UNLTD36 class ! ! ! !

SSSBB racers "only" must have two front seats and door panels-rear seat and headliner are not required "if equipped" with a five point or greater roll cage system! This is "NOT" a 36hp engine category!
 
CLARIFICATION - SSS Carburetors - To keep within the "spirit of the competition" guidelines that form the basis of the 36hp and VW Challenge in the SSS categories, when modifying the 28PCI, 30/31 PICT and 34PICT carburetors, please retain the skeleton or body of the carburetor as the foundation of your modifications. Feel free to add JB Weld and machine on the "skeleton/body" but replacing the venturi with a uniquely separate component does not fall within the spirit of what this class is meant to be and is therefore not allowable. 
 
 
 
SSSBB ONLY - Transmission must be a Volkswagen 4 speed swing axle (non-synchro or full-synchro) or I.R.S. original or modified (five speed conversions ARE permissible!). The front end may be lowered using commonly available VW axle beams, spindles or devices “excluding NARROWED axle beams”. Front and/or rear sway bars or camber compensators are acceptable and “Moon Disc” style hub cabs when securely installed following sanctioning body guidelines. In the SSSBB category "H" speed rated tires are the "minimum mandatory tires" as are all USFRA "130 MPH Club (or equivalent categories in other sanctioning bodies) rules as shown at www.saltflats.com .
 
NOTE:   “NO NITROUS”, or fuel may be used in USFRA 130/150 MPH Club competition. Race gas & high octane pump gas is O.K. as is E85 pump gas.
(2015 130/150 MPH Club  Revision: E-85 pump gas is NOW ALLOWED ! ! ! ).  Should NOX or any fuels other than pump gasoline, E85 pump gasoline or racing gasoline be used in 36hp based engines, all speeds recorded will be moved to the “1” Club category with the exception of the UNLTD36 class ! ! ! !
 
SSSBB "ONLY"  BODY CATEGORIES - Type 2's from 1968 and ALL Type 3's.
 
BODY/VEHICLE-Any year Type 1 stock bodied Volkswagen Beetle, Super Beetle or Cal Look sedan body with stock VW bumpers(any year is OK). NOTE: Convertible and sliding cloth sunroof bodies require added safety equipment-(i.e. bolt-in 4 point roll bar available from EMPI suppliers- part #3116  ). Type 141 Karmann Ghia and pre-67 Type 2 bodied cars will compete in separate body style only categories and 36hp Challenge record listings.  All metal body, hood and deck lid and metal fenders with running boards in place, wiper system and all lights functioning with full width VW bumpers (bumpers are optional on SSSBB "Big Block" racers but mandatory on all 36hp racers). T-bar style Cal-Look style bumpers are "not allowed in any 36hp categories" but are legal in all Big Block categories. "Type 2's only" can remove the rear bumper. Body side trim (i.e., Cal Look) can be removed and holes filled. Wiper blades & arms, antenna, outside mirrors and license plates may be removed during competition but must be in place prior to and through technical inspection. Interior must include two front seats and rear seat back (bottom portion of rear seat may be left out), headliner and door panels. Deck lid standoffs are not allowed! Rear wheel fender skirts on bugs and Ghias(metal Foxcraft or replica or Skirt King fiberglass aftermarket) are O.K. “if the mounting system passes the tech inspection”. I would recommend they be secured with nuts and bolts, not clamps! Only NA36 Turbo equipped cars can have both the intake and exhaust systems protrude through holes in the deck lid. No scoops allowed on the deck lid or body sides except in Type 2 categories when period early style fiberglass or ABS replica cooling air intakes of are fitted. Vintage Kamei or replica Kamei front bumper/air dam are allowed in the bug categories. Genuine Herrods Helper rear wings or the new replica aftermarket versions that mount to the air intakes under the rear window on bugs can be mounted on any 36hp Beetle that runs above 100 miles per hour for added stability and safety in all but Stone Stock categories and will NOT affect stock body classification! Rain gutters cannot be removed, modified or "taped" to improve aerodynamics.
 
LAKESTER 36-Former SCCA Formula V bodied and chassied racer's and NHRA ex-dragster chassis's fitted with one of the above described 36hp engines. NOTE: All Lakester 36 and Unlimited 36 Lakesters "must" race as 150 Mile Per Hour Club racers and meet all 150 MPH Club safety requirements! Entry costs will be based on 150 MPH Club entry fees which allows you to compete on the longer 2 1/4 mile 150 MPH Club course! If the existing body is replaced by a classic lakester style body (belly tank style), care should be given to NOT AFFECT the structural integrity of the chassis by the addition or removal of body panels. In addition, "INNER" panels in the cage and footwell area of the driver should be added as added limb protection in the event of an accident. Arm restraints are also required in all open lakester class racers. Must utilize a full width Volkswagen Type 1 style axle beam with shock towers(aluminum full width beams O.K. if equipped with stock towers and shocks).  Aero dynamic modifications to the axle beam on lakesters and lakesters not fitted with a full width VW style axle beam as described will compete under Unlimited 36(UNLTD36) and “1” Club guidelines and not be eligible for LAKESTER 36 record recognition. The width of any lakester or FV bodywork ahead of the VW axle beam can extend too, but not past, the inner surfaces of the front shock towers.  The small upper front shock extension's common on FV racers are allowed. Construction requires a sanctioning body (USFRA, ECTA, LTA) "pre-OK" a minimum of 45 days prior to any event from sanctioning body where lakester/FV will be raced to insure technical and safety compliance if not built to current SCTA/BNI/USFRA full competition safety regulations. Fenders not allowed in Lakester36.
 
 
FIBERGLASS DUNE BUGGIES/KIT CARS - Any fiberglass body combination such as a Meyers Manx or FiberFab mounted to a factory based VW floor pan (shortened OK) will be allowed to compete if it is equipped with a full NHRA, SCCA or SCTA/USFRA approved roll cage and meets all other USFRA safety requirements for the speed category in which it is racing. Custom tube style sand rail chassis's WILL NOT BE ALLOWED to compete. Please submit detailed photos of all fiberglass and homebuilt cars to include lose-up photos of the complete roll cage structure for inspection by the sanctioning body safety committee where you will race (USFRA, ECTA, LTA) a minimum of 45 days prior to the event (preferably prior to beginning construction!).
 
 
"1" Club -100 MILE PER HOUR CLUB (Outlaw 36hp)-Identifiable 36hp engine case. Two, Three or Four wheels in any configuration. Any cylinder heads or other engine modifications. Any transmission. No other guidelines. Nitrous allowed ONLY in full race (full competition long course vehicles) categories, not in 130 MPH Club or Street Legal categories! Construction of vehicle requires pre-OK from sanctioning body where vehicle will be raced to insure technical and safety compliance if not built to current SCTA/BNI/USFRA safety regulations. Vehicle must reach or exceed 100 miles per hour in a sanctioned land speed or drag race competition to receive "1" Club recognition.
 
 
150 MPH CLUB Entries - All VW's racing in this category will require a four (4) point roll cage (minimum) approved by a recognized race sanctioning organization, a four (4) point or better seat belt restraint system( five (5) point is highly recommended) including arm restraints or and approved drivers window net!. 150 MPH Club drivers must wear a SFI 3.2A/1 or better rated fire suit including shoes, gloves and an approved neck collar!
 
 
NOTE: All VW’s not fitting within the described engine, transmission, body and axle beam guidelines will be eligible for “1” Club recognition.
 
NOTE: All aerodynamically improved stock Volkswagens (Chopped or Sectioned VW’s - both require approved roll cage!), Volkswagens with fiberglass fenders, hoods or deck lids, 36hp Lakesters, Formula Vees, Streamliners, NHRA approved Dragsters,  fiberglass dune buggies on VW floor pans (fitted with SCCA, NHRA or SCTA/BNI approved roll cages), Baja Bugs, Kit Cars on VW floor pans (fitted with SCCA/NHRA or SCTA/BNI approved roll cages), Trikes or other “race” cars that pass their respective sanctioning bodies safety inspection procedures will be eligible for “1” Club recognition.
 
NEWPORT TROPHY Recognition-All racers meeting the 36hp engine and 36hp cylinder head guidelines will be eligible for recognition on the NEWPORT TROPHY(does not include "1" Club racers) ! Like the Indy 500 Borg-Warner Trophy, the name of the driver of the fastest 36hp engined car at a BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS USFRA or SCTA/BNI  land speed event during the year using 36hp style cylinder heads will have his or her name and speed engraved on a plaque added each year.

U.S.F.R.A. 130 M.P.H. CLUB SAFETY RULES
 
SAFETY EQUIPMENT-Always contact each respective sanctioning body where you plan to compete for the latest 130 MPH CLUB or “Street Class” equivalent rules and race dates before you plan on racing!. Below are the basic "Minimum" 130 MPH Club guidelines for 36hp Classes only competing at the USFRA World of Speed at BONNEVILLE in September(Note: 36hp cars competing in SCTA/BNI/USFRA, ECTA/LTA or Australia's DLRA record categories classes must meet there full competition class guidelines and successfully pass their safety/tech inspection). Because of the extra weight this safety equipment adds to DLRA/USFRA/SCTA/BNI/ECTA/LTA 36hp Challenge racers, “only DLRA/USFRA/SCTA/BNI/ECTA/LTA inspected 36hp full competition race cars” are excluded from headliner, door panel and rear seat requirements! :
 
1.      2 point seat belt (USFRA only! ! !) for cars BELOW 100 M.P.H.  ( USFRA VW’s above 100 M.P.H. will be required to have 3 point seat belts( see
      http://www.saltflats.com ).
2.      3 point seat belt (ECTA, LTA, MM & TEXAS MILE only! ! !) http://www.ecta-lsr.com (NOTE: Australian and South African sanctioning bodies require additional safety modifications-consult their inspectors and guidelines for specific information!).
3.      Full face helmet with visor/shield designated Snell 2005 ECE 22.05 or FIA 8860-2004 or later “Automobile”  or newer helmets ( Damaged helmets and Snell “M” helmets for motorcycles may not pass tech!) . Long sleeve cotton shirts and cotton pants and regular closed shoes are mandatory! It is recommended to obtain the larger 2010 Snell helmet to insure they will be legal for a longer period of time!)
4.      Dual (2) throttle return springs(per carburetor if equipped with dual carburetors!).                                                                                                         
5.   Excellent condition “S” rated tires (to 112 mph!) inflated to 50 pounds with hub caps and trim rings removed ( H rated tires required if your VW speed exceeds 100 mph!). Properly fitted Moon Discs hubcaps ( Six small screws or three Dzus fasteners per hubcap!) are allowed (Plus they look great!).
6.   Metal "bolted in" VALVE STEMS and METAL VALVE STEM CAPS! No exclusions except      36hp cars running under 99.999 miles per hour or less fitted with “inner tubes”!          Metal valve stems and caps required with ALL tubeless tires.   
7.   Overall sound and safe vehicle, licensed and insured for street operation. You must     
      present both your current state drivers license and vehicle insurance card during

8.   Sanctioning body specific membership and entry fees.
9.   “NO NITROUS”, or fuel may be used in 130/150 MPH Club competition. Race gas &
      high octane pump gas is O.K. as is E85 pump gas. (2015 130/150 MPH Club
      Revision: E-85 pump gas is NOW ALLOWED ! ! ! ).     
10.  5 lb. (pound) Fire extinguisher “securely” mounted inside passenger compartment is
       recommended but NOT mandatory. Pit vehicle must have 5lb. fire extinguisher if one
       is not mounted in the race car!
11.  “ALL” loose items inside passenger compartment and trunk must be removed (including     
        spare tire and jack).
12.  Battery must be “secured” to floor pan with a metal battery tie down (no detachable       straps!).
13.    A functioning Speedometer, tachometer or GPS unit is required to race to determine a             safe course exit speed.
16.    Fuel lines are not allowed in the passenger compartment (the VW factory fuel line inside         the center tunnel is legal !). On all uni-body (VW) cars where the fuel line "IS NOT run      inside the tunnel", the fuel line must be installed inside a heavy metal tube mounted    higher that the lowest part of the pan or above a skid plate. The metal tube must be            positively attached with bolts and nuts(NO SHEET METAL SCREWS allowed! - they vibrate         out and puncture tires!) All of the fuel line must be HIGHER than the LOWEST part of the             floor pan or uni-body structure! All non OEM fuel lines must be constructed of rubber,             braided, or steel hard line
15.    Ground cover tarp must be under the vehicle in the pits and if adjustments or work is             being performed on or near the start line.
 
 
 
 
VALIDATION for VW Challenge Record Recognition Requires:
 
a. Photos of car, of car with engine installed and running at the race venue where speed was recorded and clear specific photos showing the intake system, fan shroud and cooling system and cylinder heads and a photo from underneath showing the valve covers.
 
b. Photo of engine case with a clear image of the Volkswagen assigned stamped "engine number" clearly visible and readable.
 
c. Copy of the verified timing slip and/or published magazine article specifying a speed or for "1" Club specifying speed of 100 miles per hour or greater.
 
d. Date, event name, and sanctioning body where speed was set.
 
e. Name, address, email and phone number of driver.
 
f. Name, address, email and phone number of car owner.
 
g. Name, address, email and phone number of engine builder.
 
h. A detailed list of "all" engine specifics, sizes and components.
 
Confirmation should be emailed to Burly Burlile at burlybug@comcast.net . Note: All photos sent may be used for publication and sending the above information to this email address will be considered your release of any copyright claim.
 
       
 
SPEED VALIDATION:
ALL speeds must recorded using a land speed racing sanctioning bodies timing trap! Speeds recorded with a speedometer, GPS unit or radar gun will not be recognized.
 
WHY ? GPS, radar readings and speedometer readings cannot be accepted because they are just not precise enough for competitive comparisons.
 
 
WHY WE RACE
 
The Challenge is first and foremost, a Challenge for the fun of participating. Any reference to land speed records are relative ONLY to the VW world and are NOT RECOGNIZED by the FIA, SCTA, BNI, USFRA or other sanctioning bodies. The goal of the Challenge is to encourage you to see how fast your VW will go, to set your VW's "personal best" or "PB" speed record and find ways to improve those speeds from year to year. That having been said, come on out and have some fun with us, wherever you are in the world of Volkswagens!
