That's interesting to note. 2.a states that a single vehicle is to be impounded.
It all depends upon the definition of what a spare part is or what spare parts are.
I'm still not sure I understand the purpose of impounding a 2nd vehicle as spare parts if all you need is the spare parts, then why would you bother assembling a 2nd vehicle? It would be more work to disassemble the 2nd vehicle to provide parts for the 1st vehicle then if the spare parts were all ready to be added.
If teams are impounding a 2nd vehicle under the guise of "spare parts" intending to run it in case the 1st vehicle has a disastrous run then that's against the rules. In some competitions, the Event Supervisors will do construction checks at impounds, so you could risk having a good run with construction violations if your 2nd vehicle isn't cleared at impound.
