Sparky, no part of the body or axle fairing is wider than the narrowest inner vertical plane of the tires.  It does not say the axle cannot be aero tubing, it just says you can't have any body parts sticking outboard of the inner plane of the narrowest tires. 
We mounted an air scoop on the side one year, tech said that was body/fairing, it was just for a test we were doing, we had the NACA duct with us, to run a comparison.

If you look at my roadster, it has a sheet metal airfoil shaped cover over the tie rod which is directly infront of the axle. Ib am told this was protested when the car was new and found to be legal. People have complained about it since I have owned the car but no protest.

What do you think it would have to be to not be considered fairing? rolleyes

Like he said it sounds like the axle tube itself can be whatever shape you want it, you just can't attach something to it that is aero and inside the plane of the tires.

I have to call you we won't be coming next weekend,


Sum, how about warping the round front axle tube with sheet metal to create an aero axle? Weld sheet metal permanently to the axle tube and should meet the rules.
