Unless my memory is off, I believe we did run 1380 last year, it would be helpful if they posted a rulebook newer than the '10 one, lol.

For TC classes: From the 2010 rule book -
8.10.5.9 Ground clearance:
 Carpet surfaces: Minimum 4 mm for foam tires and 5mm for rubber tires under all parts of the vehicle excluding the spur gear.

Correct and we are running asphalt. I asked Rob about this and I understand the mm set it for carpet cause you can damage the carpet. Due to asphalt and only damaging your own chassis at that point from my understanding from a few people its null and void. I want to hear it from Rob after he verifies or if someone else from Roar or someone who knows steps in.

It does not say Carpet or Asphalt so it would wise to error on the safe side. But I'm sure that someone that runs the big races will know and chime it...

So just so I'm following along clearly they place you car on a 20mm stand and then measure an additional 170mm to get the max body height?

Then the wing I'm assuming no part of the wing including the side plates can be above the roof line?

Sorry I know it's late to ask but I want to make sure to setup my cars the right way.

Unless I'm missing something the stated specs are proceeded by the words "carpet surfaces" on the rule you posted.
