Track rules- motor diaper and slicks

I was reading a tracks rules and they said cars with slicks are required to use an engine diaper. Do y’all think a “cheater slick” like Hoosier QTP’s or M/T’s DOT bias would have to use a diaper too?

Too easy.
Does the motor have to be out to put one on, or does it just snake around the bottom?

only thing I have ever heard is if you run slicks you have to run a driveshaft loop.

but I'm not Mr. Rule Book so thats new to me.

That’s what I was thinking too. I think that’s how it is at my usual place. I was looking at another track and it said a diaper is required with slicks at their place.
I hope that’s not generally the norm, I’d rather not have to mess with one. I don’t compete, I just go to the test n tunes a few times a year.

you just test and tune.....i would think you okay unless you atleast in the 10's then they may bother you at that track.

i was in the 10's for several years and only thing far as a blanket....I had to have a trans blanket and shield running NMRA events.
