VPI requests require the year, make, model, trim level, engine size, engine HP, Drive type (FWD, RWD, AWD, 4x4), auto or manual transmission, car weight, and all options.

2020-08-17 - Droop Limiters / Spring Retainers

Q.
I would like to know the point value for Droop limiters.

Cable, chain, strap etc used to limit the suspension extension and keep the spring in place.

A.
Most teams that are running cars without captured springs that are using non OEM hardware or components to hold the spring in place are using this rule:

4.7.5. Hardware, fasteners, and materials used to attach things to
other things (nuts, bolts, screws, rivets, duct tape, bailing
wire, zip ties, JB Weld, etc.) are open.
