This may be a better question for Big Rich, but I wanted to run it by you guys first.
In the Formula Toyota rules concerning the transmission tunnel, the rules state:
Transmission tunnels are not required but a driveshaft loop and cover to protect the driver from the rear u-joint is necessary.
In an event such as PUSU, I think (guessing) we fall under the unlimited class rules. Is this true?
From the Werock site the rules concerning the tranny tunnel for the unlimited class state:
3.5.4: Exposed transmission components must be covered with a safty shield to protect occupants from possible exposure to transmission fluids in the event of transmission case fractures or unforseen fluid spills.
At PUSU will we be required to have a covered tranny tunnel?

You;ll be ok for PUSU. You will need to put in a driveshaft loop and cover just the u-joint area to compete this season though.

You'll want to make sure fluids can't enter the cab but your tube/sheet work over the flange looks tight.
