Default Can back halfed cars run in the index classes?

Just wanderin??? Rules say street legal, and I have seen some back halfed cars on the street!! Just wondering if it is anything that is streetable, or does it have to be stock appearing? The car I'd be running is in my sig.

There are lots of cars that run 6.50 with tubbed cars that are not licensed, so it must be OK

Yes not a problem as long as you fit the rules stated 6.50 cars are not required to have valid registration either. Worst case give me a buzz if you have any questions 859-912-5049.

I was just looking over that part and realized that really shouldnt be in there as i dont require current registration. I had meant street legal "appearing" which is more towards the body of the car than whats underneath. I see i already have that in there as well. I'm fixing it now.

Hell yeah, send it! Ive never seen the car before I got it. I had heard about it, but never seen it! Childress.b @ gmail.com

It was probably shifted when it hit the limiter with the 9k chip I found in it too!! Those 6.17's wouldn't get me through the quarter with a glide, so I backed it off to 5.38's!
