Today at VIR at impound they asked for a copy of the Factory Workshop manual for everyone with a Prep Level 2 car. OK If you had a Miata as it was easy to find a loaner. Not much good if its at home at the shop. lesson Learned :think:

Does anyone have any experience with this?

In some cases the factory manuals may not be available.

Are equivalents acceptable? i.e. (In order of comprehensive information) Bentley Publishers, Haynes/Chilton

I'm going to enjoy handing someone a Microfiche. Deeply enjoy.

Great reminder. This was always a rule in IT as well.

We just have a manual that lives in the "hot pit" box so we have it handy.

There are enough items that are required to be factory spec that it really isn't reasonable to try to put them all into the Prod rule book for every single Level 2 vehicle.

I'd like to be present when you hand Jim Creightion your Microfiche at the Runoffs tech. :roll:

I would not be surprised if Mr. Troemel had a microfiche reader in his truck for the events in the Central Division!

Does it have to be a paper copy or is digital acceptable?

Digital is just fine as long as it is something I can give to the stewards when they ask. Don't expect me to find a printer to print a hard copy of what you have. Be prepared. It's kind of like a video you might have that needs to be evidence. If there is not copy, they will take the original and if that is on your tablet, it's theirs until they get finished. Same with me. If I need it to go do something such as check a cam, it's gone. Have it on a flash drive just in case!

And I don't mind if it's like a past Champion had, a book about two feet thick. Just make sure you can find each item. It's your responsibility to know where it is when asked. And be sure it is the official shop manual for your make, model and year.

After all, the faster you can locate things, the quicker we can get done with impound. And I'm bringing my electric impact to Ca. next year just in case a certain driver repeats as Champion! :lol:

For a Spridget, does a Haynes or Bentley manual count? Isn't it so they can get the correct dimensions of specific parts like intake and exhaust valves?

So if you don't have one, then what was the penalty?
