Does this rule apply to 1/8th Truggy

So am if I'm understanding this correctly, the VTRs will work. Is the chord dimension supposed to be the radius of the tire?

My understanding that for 2010, the bead that you glue has to be 3.75" max. I maybe wrong, so maybe we can get Dawn in here to clarify the new rule as the new book is not out just yet. I looked through the minutes, and didnt see any mention of the rule, but the offroad competition suggestions are not on the site that i can find.
