I was told 2 years ago that in 2010 all drivers going faster than 8.50 would have to wear a SFI 15 suit. This was for blower and turbo combinations.

Are you on alcohol? Do you have an OEM or full .024 thick steel firewall?

Running 8.80's on nitrous and race gas, stock steel firewall from driver forward and only ever needed 5 layer suit.. and been through NHRA national event tech several times in the last three years, with no issue on suit. Different story for blown alcohol at that ET though.

Biondo site states the following:

ET Bracket 7.50 to 9.99 (or 135 mph or quicker)
SFI Spec 3.2A/ 5 jacket, SFI Spec 3.2A/5 pants and 3.3/1 gloves mandatory. If your car runs 7.50 to 9.99 AND is either nitrous equipped, supercharged, turbo charged, or a front engine vehicle, you will need a SFI spec 3.2A/15 jacket and pants along with SFI Spec 3.2A/15 gloves and shoes or boots meeting the SFI Spec 3.3/5 specs.

(Another69camaro) Sean and I run 7.60 with nitrous. So according to the specs above we now need a 3 layer suit as apossed to the 2 layer we have been using. Thats whats he is questioning. Some people say yes some say no.
Thanks for your help. Ray

If you run 7.60 with n20 and have a .024 firewall you need a 3.2a/5 no change from last year in your case.....7.49 and you need 3.2a/15
