3-YOU ALLOW CLUTCHLESS TRANSMISSIONS AND DIGITAL BOXES ?

4-YOU ALLOW FORWARD FACING HOOD SCOOPS


SO EXPLAIN TO ME WHERE THE STREET CAR ASPECT COMES IN ?

I UNDERSTAND ITS A 8.90 INDEX -BUT @ 3330 #,S IM GONNA HAVE TOP RACE AGAINST 2600 # CARS THAT ARE BUILT FOR BRAKET RACING -

YOU NEED SOME SMALL RULES AND THATS IT -

LEXAN WINDOWS ARE NOT STREETABLE-YOU NEED HEADLIGHT-BLINKERS-TAIL LIGHTS AND A HORN-AND INSURANCE AND LICENSE PLATES

IF NOT ALL YOU HAVE IS

BRACKET BRAWLERS

NEED A MINIMUM WEIGHT - JUST MY OPINION

THOSE ARE ALL STREETABLE THINGS

Ya know Gerry you have a point and here is why. A few weeks ago I went to the NHRA Unleashed event to just run the 9.50 class. I felt like I had brought a knife to a gun fight as I was only one there on radials, without wheelie bars, threw mufflers and averaged probably a good 6 to 700 lbs more then them. Granted I could run the numbers but by far the overall advantage was to them to run consistently. Every car there would of been able to run in the 8.90 index.

At that point I got a very sour taste as I am a street appearing car and ACTUALLY drives mine on the street and I refuse to turn mine into a dedicated race car which is what most of the cars I seen race there. I will admit that I am a nobody and my car did not attend any races this year but at this point I have given up hope even if the car could run 8.90 on the buttton.

I have to give props to Blaze and Ray as there cars are street appearing to the T and have won. Those are the target cars that represent the class well. On the filp side though I understand that cars like that are far and few between.

But I still have to pull the next lever. Most guys run a glide, so you got to shift ONCE. tell me where the advantage is. Seems like we got alot of guys who will take their kick ball home if the game isn't going their way. Stop whining and race. And if I offend any of the STREET cars, I personally don't care. If you want to push the street car thing, lets go for a 20 mile cruise and see how many will make it back. I will in my 3300 pound, clutchless shifted, chassis car with struts. ANY TAKERS? If not , lets stop throwin stone and race.


Its always the ones that never raced the class that throws the gas in the fire. Its a fun race an l hope the winter months don't get everyone in an uproar over rules BS. Sounds to me like Norwalk sent a few of their bitchers down to try an ruin a good race!

And if we were pure to a "real street" set of rules we'd have four cars? That's why we created the class because there aren't 16 cars that can run 8.90 under those rules. AKA Norwalk, 4 cars run the number and the other 8 are in the 10s.

I could live with no forward facing scoops and any 10.5 tire, but I got hammered for suggesting it earlier. As for lexan windows, we've got several guys that have them for windshields and rear windows. You can't tell them from glass. The side windows with the frames don't have the street look but it's a tough one to change back.

We've first need to bring our current cars up to a minumum standard, which is our published rules. Some cars need to work on interiors (dashes and tin need fixed), for sure get any boxes out of the cars and get working head lights and tails.
