99 times out of 100, if it doesn't specifically state that you can do it, then it's not legal.

I spent about 1/2 an hour searching as well, and couldn't find anything specific to the balance shaft.
^^^Other than balancing the rotating assembly is not allowed in ST.
In fact, "balance shaft" doesn't even show up in a search in the PDF.

Isn't the balance shaft that you're deleting internal to the engine?
IOW, it's not external like the crank damper or a pulley, so 14.10 doesn't apply at all.

I guess I should peruse the Duratec forum and read up on the balance shaft delete a bit more.

I suppose at our regional level it's not a big deal, but Divisionals or Nationals could get a bit iffy.
Then again...maybe you shouldn't have mentioned it at all. LOL!
