Is / will the new Parma Charger be subject to the same front wheel arch height rule of .210 like the VFC Charger and Daytona? Similar fronts on these molds and just wanting clarification for us moving forward.

With the rules as they are the top of fender cannot be cut into above the fender line. This will leave about .240" of height from the hood to the top of the fender.

A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

The rules state no cutting above the door line. The .210 for the wheel well is still in effect but you probably do not need it.

You are not allowed to cot premarked wheel wells above the cut line correct?

No that's why the .210 rule

I remembered this when Tony said it -

 

2c. Front and rear wheel arches must be cut out and not exceed the molded wheel opening.

 

The Parma does have a funky molded line (shape)

 

Thank you for the reply, we will simply stick to the .210 until further notice.

When the .210 rule came out I thought it was just for the VFC Charger.

 

Is it now applied to all stock car bodies?
