While this hasn't been made official, here's what the rule changes for next year will be: TAD & TAFC: Foam Insert Seat pads will be mandatory. Padding does not have to be necessarily below the driver, but is recommended if cage clearance allows. Padding has to be securely mounted to the seat around the torso. Lateral head pads, to the same spec as Nitro FC for TAFC and TF for TAD will be mandatory. EGT Junction boxes will have to be securely fastened to the header. TAD: Drivers will have to wear boots and gloves meeting sfi 15 or better. ** TAFC: Helmet shrouds to the same spec as Nitro FC will be mandatory. NOTE the mounting points/specs for Funny Car are different than dragster. Firebottles will have to be mounted such that sight guages are pointed up. ** I will be getting a fax later today confirming the numbers on that spec. I was originally told if you wear a 15 suit, you have to wear a 15 glove now. Boots will be mandatory...don't know if they make a 15 boot.
