    How is this any different to a 600cc sport bike engine running the stock airbox? I think your key word is "lunatic" and whether it's 600cc or 1200cc they are going to do it anyway.

    Metal is not an option as it needs to insulate. The less metallic components inside an accumulator the better.

    EV4.5.8 - Plastic used in HV "stackup"

    Our team has recently been picked up (luckily) on facebook for a rule that we missed in our accumulator segment design.

    It does look like they might have made a mistake there. It mentions Section T4.2 as a "Notable Change" but it seems unchanged.

    My thoughts are, none of these are game changers. A few more engines become appealing but power stays the same (why not remove the redundant capacity limit completely?).

    You're correct. I was pointing out that the front hoop bracing tube can be one of the three front bulkhead support tubes. The rules read as if 4 tubes are required - to me at least.
