Thompson has a couple of club days, were its up to the club to pick what they have that day. Motorheads and Pistons have such a day. When the schedule comes out we could see what days they are and that could be one angle, If worst comes to worst. Would like to see some thing happen before then. I can't see why Thompson wouldn't do something like this. The doors open hope Thompson takes advantage of it, there's a lot of Norwalk outlaw street orpans out there. I do like the weight min though, most street car weight more than 3,000, shit I'm at 3,500. dennis maybe you need to start throwing your wieght around.

Thompson doesn't have any scales or the tech staff of NRP. Keep it simple, run the number, if the car adheres to the street car rules it won't be a 2700# car. That is the point of an index, just get to the number.

I agree, Made that "no scales" point earlier, just stating what I would like to see.

Many of these racers were displaced from the GOLD/SILVER format NRP ran and want to race still.
I understand that Tom, I am talking no electroncis, and not columbus,no box, stutter box, t stops, air & electric shifters, Just a t brake and a 2 step and thats it... Stuff thats is easy to remove....Hell, I even take the stickers off for that matter... Honestly, I can already see the rulles getting resrtictive on this...

Here are E Towns Street Appearing rules. Don't worry about tire size, mufflers. registration, just race if you are street appearing.

Per E Town rules.


BODY/INTERIOR
  1. Full-bodied factory rear wheel drive street type cars
  2. A ribbon-type window net SFI Spec 27.1 is mandatory on full bodied cars that are required to have a roll cage
  3. Must be street appearing/no gutted interiors/carpeted interior even if rear seat is removed (The interior should look clean and professionally done)
  4. No car will be permitted to go faster than the Chassis is certified for by the NHRA
  5. Must have door panels
  6. Racecar lettering on windows only (Sponsor Logos permitted)
  7. Height on hood scoop to be a maximum 9 inches
  8. No one-piece fiberglass front ends
  9. Back half or stock suspension permitted
  10. Windows, Lexan permitted (Roll down windows optional)
  11. Must have stock style front suspension
  12. No full round or square tube chassis cars
  13. On board fire extinguisher is permitted and recommended
ELECTRONICS
  1. Bracket Racing Aids: No throttle stops, No Electric shifters or Optical sensors. No delay boxes or other driver aided electronics. The application or use of any device, mechanical or electronic, that permit the driver to ascertain the position of their vehicle in relation to the starting line is prohibited.
  2. Progressive Nitrous controller system permitted
NHRA RULEBOOK:
  1. Delay boxes/Devices 8.2 under prohibited
  2. 8.7 switches
  3. 9.1 computer

These rules are alot less restrictive than Norwalks. I wish they would adopt these rules even though my car fits Norwalks rules. I think with these rules Thompson might have a better turn out and more competitive of a class.
