rule clarification

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.

Right now that area looks like this.


That should be good to go, right?

Pat,

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