New shock bump stops are now available. These are custom designed by SCCA-E for the SpecRacer and are replacements for the Penske stops. They are optional for this year. The new stops seem to perform for most track conditions. Next year you will need to run these or no stops. The stops are available from you CSR or can be purchased online at http://www.accelracetek.com

The existing rules allow the bump stop to be shortened. Will this be allowed with these as well? They look rather long when I saw them installed on a car last weekend at Sonoma and I expect they will compress under load (though they appear much softer than the original Penske bump stops), though I didn't hear any complaints about handling, which was a big issue in the past at this track with the original Penske bump stops, which would create some pretty exciting moments under load in T1!

They are about 3/4 the length of a full Penske, and probably close to twice as stiff.
