I'm not in love with this rule change. I've been using Fire Charger AFF refillable systems in 3 cars. The Lemons Alfa, SCCA and Vintage. Racing Tech Stewards have inspected all of them and been fine with them.
I've had 2 accidental discharge in 8 years - both at the track and both times had the kit on hand to refill and recharge to go on to race.
Seeing what you see in a Lemons paddock, do you really think that ALL the teams that have a accidental discharge will announce it and decline to race? I'm betting not. And a spare fire bottle is probably not high on the list of priorities.
Buuuuutttt, I get it. We can't be trusted to fill and recharge our own bottles an the Insurance industry owns us. And there is also that Safe is good. Burns are bad.
