I just want to make sure I purchase a legal body.
As Ruben stated, the body has been included in the extension list of bodies that did not meet the GBS specifications that the body MFG's generated.
This is the announcment. You'll see the body you asked about is included.
2/6/08 Body Approval Extension
The ROAR President, the ROAR Competition Director, the ROAR Technical Director, the Electric On Road Committee, the Body Approval Committee along with acceptance for the best interest of racing and the ROAR membership from the body manufacturing agents and in the best interest and the integrity of our Carpet Nationals event, has extended the expiration date of the following bodies to 3/31/08.
These bodies fall outside of the Global Body Specifications rules either by dimension testing or expiration and resubmission date, as per the rules published in 2007 and again without change in 2008. ROAR is working with the body companies regarding the GBS rules that have been in place and provided a courtesy reexamination of these bodies as they were not resubmitted as requested. ROAR has stated to these companies the bodies will fall off the approval list and will not return unless they are resubmitted for another courtesy evaluation and for those who failed in dimension testing, the errors are corrected.
There are no plans to provide another extension for the Paved On Road Nationals as ROAR feels one year plus several months is plenty of time to comply to published rules. Also, ROAR recommends to the membership to log into the approval list on several occasions prior to an event to verify the expiration dates of bodies and other products intended for use.
