    • Frayed belts, belts in poor condition, weathered or hard belts will not be accepted.
  2. Seats:
    • A racing style bucket seat of either high or low back must be used. If using a low back style seat a head rest must be fitted to allow for protection from rear impacts.

      • No pressure systems will be allowed except for LPG or natural gas. Any concealed or non-concealed pressure type containers, feed lines or actuating mechanisms will not be permitted, even if inoperable. Icing, Freon type chemicals or refrigerants may not be used in or near the fuel system.
      • Electric fuel pumps must have oil pressure shut-off. Loss of oil pressure will automatically shut off fuel pump. A momentary- on bypass may be installed. The momentary on bypass may be like a push button, or a 2 pole starter button, which can be mounted in a position best suited to the driver. The oil pressure sending unit is AC Delco part number 25036938 or equivalent.
      • No material other than standard foam as provided by the fuel cell manufacturer is permitted.
      • Rear mounted fuel cell must have a chassis or body cross member of substance between the fuel cell and driver and be protected from ground obstacles.
      • All fuel cells must have a vent line in which a one-way valve is installed and routed correctly Vehicles that use a filler tube connected to fuel cell for remotefilling must have an in-line one-way valve.
      • Fuel cell cannot be vented into the driver’s compartment of any vehicle.
