Default Body styles vs weight breaks

What are the thoughts on this, pre 1955 bodies get a 125 lb break, 55-83 get a 75 lb break. Would that keep Pro-Mods from looking like Pro-Stock? Any thoughts??

Don't know what kind of formula or how to calculate the weight but I'm all for it. I'm getting tired of seeing '68-'69 Camaros.

This would create a class of 68 TMRC Camaro bodies. Aero vs weight break would make that the best body combination.

The 68-69 Camaro body is very good, but look at the old R2B2 53 Vette, very fast car.

For the record in NHRA there are (11) 2014 or newer Camaros and only (3) '68-'69's on the most recent qualifying sheet.

Including Ruben's which is listed as a 2017.

I think McCoy's '69 Vette will prove even better and won't be needing a weight break of 75 lbs. LOL
