Yes, I just double checked the Australian regs too. They are also given as maximum dimensions.The old NiCd and NiMH regs were for 'nominal' dimensions. I remember very specifically because we had some 2/3 sized sub-Cs that weren't legal at sanctioned events.
I'm not sure I'm thrilled with this development. Having more than 2 ways to lay out packs (saddle and stick) could lead to needing to buy new packs whenever you swap car brands, or indeed having different chassis for Stock and Mod. Hmm.
