R14e Clarification


Charles Jeffries (Event Partner)
21-Feb-2024

R14e states:

For the purposes of this rule, the V5 Smart Motor Cap is not considered “part of the motor.” Therefore, <R15> applies.

R15 states:

Most modifications to non-electrical components are allowed. Physical modifications, such as bending or cutting, of legal metal structure or plastic components are permitted.

  • R14e states that R15 applies to the V5 Smart Motor Cap. Is it correct to say that R15 applies to the V5 Smart Motor Cap and that physical modifications to the cap, such as bending or cutting, are legal?
  • R14e states that the V5 Smart Motor Cap is not considered part of the motor for its purposes. Therefore, is it correct to say that the absence of the V5 Smart Motor Cap would not be a violation of R14?

Thank you.
