So, what's the deal with the rear axles? What happened to bring about a rules clarification request?

See the COTA smack thread on this site. NASA Toyo Nationals DQ's.  I also believe within the revised SCCA rule they need to change the word bearing to bearing spherical balls.

Not that I agree, but if you defined the spherical balls, you would also need to define the bearing races... As the larger balls are used to match an enlarged bearing race.

They also said: "For the remainder of 2018, Spec Miata OEM, re-manufactured or rebuilt axles will not be a tech examined item"

My comment is strictly referencing the word "bearing" the SCCA used. What is your definition of bearing, better yet, what is the SCCA glossary's definition of bearing.
