1jeffcat Posted May 10, 2019 Share Posted May 10, 2019 (edited) So while prepping the car to run this year, we need to run more weight, and will be running near the max ballast of 250lbs. Quote CCR 15.20—Up to two hundred and fifty (250) lbs. of added ballast is permitted. All ballast must be of solid material (no fluids or shot pellets), safely secured in any location on the vehicle not disallowed by NASA safety technical inspectors, and comply with Section 15.20 of the NASA CCR. My question is what criteria does the 250lbs fall under?....the lead ballast itself, or the lead ballast + whatever mounting hardware? The reason I ask is because I would like to add some thick reinforcing steel plates to the underside of the floor pan, as backing plates for the large amount of ballast being mounted on the passenger floor, however, depending on how the rule is interpreted, it may change my ballasting strategy.
