Just to be clear, I paraphrased the rulebook. But it's pretty definitive. It
only allows changes to what is specifically mentioned that can be changed.
If it's not mentioned, it's generally not allowed. However, I had a question
for National regarding swaybar end links on the same car (Subaru uses a
molded polymer of some kind, no idea why, other than there is no way for
them to squeak) and it's not specifically mentioned that those can be
changed. National confirmed that the end links are part of a "sway bar" so
that they could be changed. So, I do have to contact National to be sure,
THEY are allowed to interpret, we the minions just follow along.
