Any merit to idea of replacing Open Comp in Milan's Head's Up program with a Limited Drag Radial Class? Would require basic engine inspection to limit the combo's however, I know that's not popular.

Possible rules borrowed from MSRA/Mason Dixon:

General-
Heads Up Class
.400 Pro Tree
1/8 mile, 1st to the finish wins
All competitors are to use a 275 Drag Radial Tire (50 or 60 series) Must say 275 on Sidewall
All Run Field with qualifying to set up a Pro Ladder

Suspension-
Stock Front Frame Rails required, direct replacement light weight components allowed (k-member,coilovers,etc.)
Front k-member may be modified for rack and pinion and oil pan access
Stock Rear Frame rails required, may be notced for tire clearance
Ladder Bar and Coilovers OK with stock rear frame rails
Welded in Anti-Roll OK
No wheelie bars

Engine-
Power Adders with Small Blocks Only
Big Blocks Normally Aspirated Only?
Single Stage Nitrous Systems only-extra solenoids and components will need to be disabled and easily inspected
Single Turbo (76mm) and Centrifugal Superchargers (F1 or equiv) allowed without the aid of water to air intrcoolers or Meth/Water injection
Roots Blower allowed with 2 carbs or injection
No multiple power adders (Twin Turbos, Blower with N2O,etc.)
Multiple carbs and/or Sheetmetal intakes allowed only on Normally Aspirated Combos Only

Weights: To Be Determined

Interior/exterior-
2 Front seat, covered door panels and factory appearing dash required and carpet,emphasis on Street Appearing
Fiberglass limited to Hood, Hood Scoop and front and rear bumpers.
Factory OEM or OEM Replacement windows required-No Lexan, Speedglass or similar Light weight replacements with the
exception of rear windows on trucks (rollbar access)
No Race Car Lettering-Stickers for sponsors or contigency OK.

Exhaust-
Mufflers required on all cars except Turbos

Electronics-Trans Brakes OK. No throttle stops, Delay Boxes or other bracket racing aids allowed.

Anyone caught cheating will lose all winnings and be banned from future events.

I dont think it will ever happen. Open comp gets a full field every race. Probably the only class they make money on. At the last race they had cars that didnt even qualify and I believe its a 64 car field.

Whats wrong with the current drag radial class? It has a 7.50 cap on it.

Hasnt someone already been 7.60s with an F2 on a small block sitting on 275s? Groves?

Limited TIRE and ENGINE, try to keep the cars around 1000hp 76mm/F1/1 Fogger, SB only. The difference between an F1 and F2 is huge. Also no Water to Air Intercoolers,

Ideally it would be 8.50 and slower

And all of the radial cars will look identical to the fans, so i dont ever see this happening. I agree, open comp is lame.

Id much rather see a 16 car field for RWYB.

I am local to MSRA and hope to see this take off. I think that for the ease of tech though that the turbo rule should read "No Large Frame Turbos".

Check out the Cheap Street rules. No turbo's period! This is a great heads up "entry level" class with a strong following around here. The cars run 5.60s to 5.90s 1/8th mile..

That's a decent target ET range. Would like to keep it open to broad number of combinations, not everyone likes to pay for their HP by the pound of giggle gas . . .

So you figure 800-850 hp on SB/NOS combo's??
