World of Outlaws Institutes Rules Changes PLANO, TX (January 5) - The World of Outlaws has instituted several rules changes in an effort to make racing with the series as cost-effective and safe as possible. In 1996, two stationary foils or rudders will be allowed to run the entire length of the under side of a car's top wing. The maximum height proportions are one inch at the front and three inches in the rear. The foil will not be allowed to exceed three inches in height. Only brake rotors of steel, aluminum or carbon fiber will be allowed. No titanium headers, front axles, nerf bars or rear bumpers will be allowed. Only nerf bars and rear bumpers made of steel - and at least one inch in diameter - will be allowed. Cars will be required to race the entire program with the same fuel tank that was used during the qualifying session. Exceptions will be made if a tank is damaged in a crash. Although they won't be required, it will be suggested that the teams install driver's seat fume deflectors/heat shields or firewalls on their cars. WoO
