Mike....my only problem with the rules is the seat location rule.

6.5 SEATS
SEATS: Single driver seat must be in stock location and the centerline of the driver’s shoulder must not sit behind the plane of the door jam.

In my my Mopar my seat was 6" behind the doorjamb and my old Chevy II it was 2" behind the doorjamb.

Why does it matter where the driver is in the car? Luckily in my Camaro the doorjamb is almost even with the wheeltub and I sit just in front of the jamb. The reason why I bring this up.....this rule hurts tall drivers like myself 6'6"and guys ike Tom Hammonds who is 6'8". I went rounds with the Democrat Road NMCA group years ago on this issue. I even sold one car due to the seat setback rule clause back then.

I agree. I had to go back and look at pictures of my cars build up. My shoulder is exactly in line with the door jamb. I had to pull the seat back that far just so I could get in and out through the door opening due to my height. There have to be other cars and drivers out there where that problem is just as bad or even worse. Seems like a strange rule. I can understand the need for controlling the setback. But, at the same time wouldn't controlling the percentage of weight on the front wheels really get what you're looking for?
