AWDC Challenge regs


Recommended Posts

Looking at the AWDC challenge regs i was wondering about a couple of points :-

14.(f) be fitted with circuit breaker which isolates the battery from all electrical circuits and cuts the engine at the same time

and is easily operable by the driver whilst correctly seated.What do people use for this- Is it just the ignition key?

4.(a) be equipped with a positive method of throttle linkage closing in the event of linkage failure by means of an additional

external spring to each throttle spindle.Another spring attached to the injection pump lever? Or is fact that the lever will close on it's own sufficient(300tdi - with external spring)?

13.(e) have tank fillers and caps which do not protrude beyond the bodywork, nor are situated within the driver/passenger

compartment. The caps must have an efficient locking action to reduce the risk of accidental opening during an accident

and ensure closing after refueling. Air vents must be at least 250mm to the rear of the cockpit. All fuel caps should be of

the sealed type to prevent spillage.

Would a flush fit filler similar to the below but a locking version be acceptable?

An Aditional spring is not required on a 300TDI as it already has one

Standard L/R Fuel cap in a standard housing is sufficient otherwise the one you list looks ok

Thanks for that - couldn't find the first thread.

Unfortunately the truck isn't mine it's my mates D-Lander and the filler is flush mounted on the bodywork not in the recess like a 110/90. Still good?
