That's what I was thinking.. 7 pages of PROPOSED changes.

with most of the pages just stricken text...

I think all consolidated its only about three pages of stuff to read and ponder

Key word. Proposed.
It states, that they are submitting them to the BOD for approval.
The BOD is meeting in about 2 weeks.
So if there are comments, say something now, not after the fact.

Heads?
 
Am I reading this right, same cylinder heads we have now? 1994 and up Mustangs get a 200# weight penalty to run big engines, GM 300# penalty for big engines, and my poor Fox Mustang gets a 400# penalty. As the highest finishing Fox at this years Runoffs (17th) I guess some rules makers wanted to make sure Foxes did not dominate the class anymore.

The head issue has not been resolved yet. We are checking into the weight thing now.
So if anyone else see's something wrong, please let us know, so it can be checked out and corrected if it needs to.
Thanks, Chuck

Cast iron GT40 head and you get to run the same weight as long as you are 313ci or less (3180#). If you run >313ci you add 400#. So where is the aluminum cyl. head option? Did that get scratched?

New Rules
 
It would be helpful if someone (Wheel? Kyle?) would give us a bit on an interpretation. What I see is NO new head options for GM like aluminum but the old 081s and 416s can run a 1.94 intake. If you opt for the 350 option you have to run the 081s and 416s and add 300 pounds (forgetaboutit).

This can't possibly be right after all the work, letters and discussion that has taken place. If so, very sad.

As I read the rules, max exhaust valve is 1.5". Previous rules for
ford GT-40 exhaust were max of 1.540. So anyone running a GT-40
head would be illegal under new rules?

The connecting rod rule wording is a little odd. The paragraph at the front
seems to imply you have to have OEM or OEM replacement rods, but
references the engine build sheets. There the alternate rods says anything
that meets AS specs is OK. This could arguably be interpreted to say that
part of the AS specs is that it's OEM rod, and thus that alternate
manufacture is not legal at all.

Do I understand the spec line changes correctly as allowing the
3280 weight for camaros as long as they use one of the block castings
indicated, but everything else built to the new specs?

Lastly, what was the reasoning behind the change to steering column
rule? As this reads, I cannot remove all the plastic stuff on the outside
of the steering column, because that is a modification that doesn't
improve collapsibility. Also, as I read this, it means anyone who has
put in a steel u-joint to replace the rag-joint is now going to be illegal?
