That depends on which WGT rules you use. If you use the ones that were created originally independent of any sanctioning body then yes the front end is illegal. However ROAR's WGT rules do not specify a sliding king pin and my guess is a lot of club level WGT classes will not have a problem with it either. I have a feeling the original WGT rules will eventually change to accommodate the new technologies.

Do the longer of the two sets of standoffs hold the battery plate or the rear chassis brace?

I will protest only if you win

There are two sets of standoffs. One set for the battery plate and one set for the carbon chasis brace. The manual calls each set "long" but there are two different lengths. It appears the shorter of the two sets go on the carbon brace. Is that right?

Also, are the ball cups that go on the damper tubes the same size as the CH12 ball cups?

I spoke with Bruce Corbone from SpeedMerchant who wrote the rules and he is going to be modifying the rules to make our front end legal for WGT. There will no longer be a sliding kingpin only rule.
