51 - Where do you measure the width of the front and rear wings for S1 and S2?

52 - If I manipulate my arches within the above tolerances, will it still be o.k to run the same offset wheels which are et30 ?
A -The idea is to have a stock looking shell, in class S1 and S2. To police this practically we have given the factory dimensions, then given 1% leeway on top to allow for measuring tolerances and minor body damage. Having arches that are pulled out of shape and that don't now fit the shell properly (rooferman front arches not fitting near the door in 2013 for example) will not be allowed. Some arch modifications for minor clearance inside the arch will be accepted. The rules does not limit wheel track, so if you were running a lot of camber for example, you could have the base of the wheel outside the arch profile when looking from above, but the top of the wheel and tyre must be inside the arches.
53 - Will a parachute mount at the rear be acceptable?
A - Yes, so long as the parachute isn't present during runs.
54 - Can I modify a 90 degree elbow OEM turbo to front entry and use that in S1?
