It would be helpful to call out the other dimension in the NSW template sheet. (example 266.0mm x 30.0mm)
I sent my size to the water-jet guy and pretty sure it is 30.00 mm deep but would like to be certain.

Bump for dimensional clarity.

Reading through the ST1-4 and ST5 rules, only the 226mm NSW gage has a 23mm depth. (ST5 <2400lb)
The 282mm, 266mm and 257mm NSW gages are 30mm depth.

I missed that part.
Ideally we could update the NSW template to specifically call out that dimension.

We will ultimately need some feedback in usage. My tire has so much curvature in the center even 30mm really doesn't go all that far down the sidewall . I printed/cut mine from cardstock

I'm unsure why the avg. horsepower rule of 7.3.3 includes forced induction especially smaller displacement engines. Small displacement turbo motors have far less usable power bands and this rule will only focus strictly on their small peak power. Last year it seemed like this rule was going in the right direction for cars that made peaky power. Now we're going backwards and this rule does nothing to help even the field.

That is absolutely not true if the engine is tuned (and detuned) correctly. The Dyno curve can easily be manipulated with a small displacement engine and FI to make some of the data points specifically low at the ends of the rpm range to give a falsely low Avg HP, or it can be made absolutely flat for over 4000 rpm (we have seen both on 2.0L and smaller motors).
