For the time being, I have added a few words to the line "except for Touring, Spec Miata, Improved Touring, American Sedan restricted prep," to the new rule. This will allow anyone (don't think there are any) who is running an RP SN95, to keep their current tank. I would not build a car for ASedan without a fuel cell in a car that does not have a stock tank between the axles and the frame rails, as I am certain that it will not be compliant in the future. So, for now, no ASedans are affected by the new rule.

4th gen RP Camaro/Firebirds stock tank is forward of the axle. I have chosen to replace and install a proper fuel cell, still as a RP prepped car.

So the only RP cars that would be “forced” to make a change are the RP cars that no one is running in the first place?

True, and I fixed it in case there is one somewhere that nobody knows about. That part of the rule will probably be changed for 2019.

Default short sighted--

From Matt Jensen--"4th gen RP Camaro/Firebirds stock tank is forward of the axle."

This is not true! The tank is located entirely behind the rear axle on all 4th gen F body cars--actually in the same location as the 3rd gen cars. GM installed a shield on the upper diff cover to keep the sharp edges of the stamped diff cover from tearing a hole in the tank.

From Scott Sanda--"So the only RP cars that would be “forced” to make a change are the RP cars that no one is running in the first place? "

Also not true--some areas still have several Majors events and many regional events to come. We haven't raced yet and our car still has the stock tank.
I'm sure others, perhaps running in regionals or that haven't raced yet also are out there. Out here there have been a couple of RB mustangs, that also run in T2, entered in A/S races.

Thank you for your efforts Jim--it is appreciated--
