If you're going to race in NAMBA, it has to be a stock Zenoah. NAMBA and the IMPBA are both anal about them being Zen's only.
Don't feel bad as there's a few classes that I'd like ot run in but with the Zenoah's only rules I can't or should I say don't want to as I like my RCMK's.

No, when they say Zenoah 260's only, that's what they mean. Not even a Zen clone. I know, I don't like it either.
Your only other choice is to run in the mono classes.

Yes. You can run it in a Cat, mono or outrigger.
Classes that are Zenoah-only are the Crackerbox, Thunderboat and I think stock mono.
