I think that if you did a pure CIK interpretation of the rules, any modifications from the homologation papers would be illegal. That would mean that putting in any form of support for the foam would not pass muster.

However, that seems a little harsh for club type racing. As Curt pointed out, it certainly wouldn’t be a performance advantage, if anything, it would be the opposite. And it certainly would help the racer to have better and consistant filtration, particularly at some of our dustier tracks in terms of engine life. Its a shame that we get stuck with products that basicaly are not very good because the rules require them.

I would support the type of “modification” Curt suggests. I don’t see a down side.
