does this mean your car will comply then? or does it still need to be modified to meet the regs?

Anyone fancy entering a hillclimb supersports? see S.10.1.4, or how about a trials car see T.12.2. And that's before you consider that the whole clubmans series has apparently been blown out of the water because their regs - for which the MSA have granted a permit - specifically require K.1.6.4(b) which no longer exists!

I don't remember any prior notice that this was going to happen for the current season.
It was posted by the MSA just prior to the last constructors/MSA meeting and I'm pretty sure I posted on here at the time

The Zeus chassis is 35mm T45 throughout so it doesn't comply with the BB. We will get it certified in the next few weeks however.

I think the MIRA costs were about gbp1200.

Submitting a car for examination does not guarantee that it will pass and I assume the charge will still be the same if it fails.....

MIRA give a recommendation what is needed to make it pass and do a retest based on the revised drawings

1. Provide a set of ROPS drawings in CAD form to the MSA for a homologation number. They will basically give it the Mk1 eyeball to ensure it isn't too silly.
2. Either present a CAD model of the ROPS (entire chassis in the case of the Zeus) to MIRA or a car with the ROPS on for non-destructive deflection testing.
3. Assuming you pass then MSA will issue a certificate for the ROPS.

Not got to the paying bit yet but from memory it was £1000+VAT for the deflection test and something like £300 to the MSA. On top of this I'm paying £600+VAT to get the drawings/CAD model of the ROPS done and £1000 to get both chassis modified.

You could build a number of ROPS after that but as we only have 2 chassis the costs are split between them

Hopefully not at your expense Jeff given that you were assured the car was legal before purchase
