keep it at 8.90, street appearing, no bracket race electronics, .400 tree and go race.

Get the class moving first, then evaluate it as a group for future revisions like Al just spoke about.

...well good luck with that, will be just another nite to watch ang would hope it will not end up like the dragster side of the asphalt wars...realisticly i see about 12-14 cars coming out for that, throw in a threat of rain, and will be lucky to have 6-8; maybe this needs to be like a frantic four type field in the beginning with a healthy payout...

it took a while to convince all the door war cars to all show up but now it seems they cant get enough of thompson. there will be plenty of cars show up i think. it just needs to get promoted and you will have a good car count. and it needs to stay street appearing heads up no matter if its 8.90 9.90 or 10.0 and no electronics and like al said there is no scales so weight limits can not be checked .

If they go with a 8.90 index good for me if they go with a 10.00 index good for you, what ever they decide is fine with me.
Jay with all the whining/bitching that has been done and Norwalk has not changed any of the rules that are being bitched about..." they let this guy run, wouldn't let me run, blah, blah", do you really believe that? Let me rephrase that... are we supposed to believe that?
TRP, this year had one of the best hooking tracks for the door wars guys this season. Yet, they had nights were they only had maybe 10 cars and not much more and 1 dragster, with, correct me if I am wrong, the same payday as NRP?
I think that if you made it the rules VERY simple, that some very nice, "bracket cars", could and would remove their electronics, make the index a lil softer, you would start out with a good class, good fields. Then as some one stated earlier, as the class grew, grow the rules to that 8.90, street appearing BS, small tire/radial or whatever you guys want. As Long As the bracket guys know in the beginning that this is the intent, it wouldn't be that big of issue them getting bumped out as class, rules, and fields progress... Just being realistic in the fact that if local racers cant support it, the guys traveling wont be either. I dont know many nights you have been out to TRP, but it will never be about packing the seats, filling with fans like Milans.
Not busting on you or any place, just being realistic...Good Luck with this guys...

COOK E, there already is a 8.90, 9.90, 10.90 program for 'super class cars that runs in columbus. This is for 'street appearing cars without all the electronic gear, thats the appeal to the racers and fans. Norwalk has had pathetic fields due to restrictive rules and poor treatment. Many of these racers were displaced from the GOLD/SILVER format NRP ran and want to race still.

My interest is to have an index class for street appearing cars. As always happens in drag racing what started as a class with a big car count dwindled because the competitive bar was raised beyond the means of most racers. A lot of us interested are displaced from some sort of Heads Up Street Car class. I for one can't afford to keep up with the fast crowd in OL 10.5 using a car once competitive in a NA Small Block heads up NSCA series. The RAM series is the only thing out there and it's too far to travel, our stuff is too small for Milan, with weight adders we can't cut it there. We'd just like to go someplace close to home. A relatively fast index (8.90 here, 8.50 on the East Coast) provides a place for those who grew up in the "street car" catagories. The cars look cool, wheelie and run on the edge, no stuttering, fluttering bracket shit, it's an excellent package for the right promoter. And with an index, unlike the unlimited catagories, if you're not fast enough now you know what you have to build toward, and the bar doesn't change.

my car fits the whole street car theme to a tee! need a little more power to run 8.90s but it will! i know everyone wants the street car them but,i think 8.90 is 8.90 as long as there are no electronics involved, for the tree or down track,then f-it open it up to any street apearing car! as long as the windows roll up and down thats thats good for me! big tire little tire ,turbo nos who cares 8.90 and for all the small tire cars on here you will feel even better when you stomp a big tires ass! the only problem with chaos is number of cars, and billys not willing to comprimise! like tom said all the silver and gold cars are ass out now! i think that we pick a sat early in the spring round everyone from this site up who said they are willing to come to trp, run our gamblers show curtis that we mean buisness then we will know if its worth getting a sponsor or if we have the same lame turnout as nrp! either your in or you shut your dick lickers!

Great post the only thing I would add to that is no stickers all over the car, maybe limit them to the back window.

That is in the "street appearing" rule from E Town I posted. Decals on windows only.
