Hey guys! I know us nitrous guys have a hard time finding a good class to compete in that isnt constantly getting ran over by the newest turbo/blower that comes out every 6 months, so I'm wanting to try and expand and promote the growth of the OL632 class.


The money isnt a huge factor for me but its nice to race for atleast $3000 so if you do win you can cover your travel expenses and wear/tear on some parts.


I dont have the all the answers on how to grow this but i'm sure if we buy tech cards prior to a race I'd bet many tracks would gladly accept our class.

Any ways I'd like to leave this thread here (Steve granted permission) to try and stir up some interest and some ideas about making this class succeed and move forward in a much larger way.

Thanks,

Tyler

That list is just a little misleading because of a couple things. One, that's at a radial race on a radial prep track and a few of those top cars are on radials. Two, a few of those are X275 cars because of point one. So at a PDRA race, that list might look way different...........but to answer the question, to be an OL632 "hitter" you need 40s in your repertoire.

no doubt. pdra doesnt even give a weight break for small tires or no wheelie bars... the PDRA class is favoring the slick tired cars much, much more.

obviously i think some favors were paid for this particular rule set but, whatever... i'll try and make the 11+ hour drive to atleast a couple.

Bullcrap, favors my ass.
It has been the same set of rules, .036 jet and 2700 pounds, and the class was called Xtreme632. PDRA wanted to try the xtreme623 class out, but the Bradenton folks did not want them, PDRA made the weight adjustment to 2725 for the x 632 to gauge the support. Ken Kershaw lobbied to get the class included next year, and they included the outlaw 632 club guys. And specifically did not include SGMP because of the outlaw 632 filler race already there and Bradenton because of the existing outlaw 632 class.

And a weight break for no wheelie bars????? Stupidest shit I have ever heard of, and now it is 50 pounds? What set of wheelie bars is 50 pounds.......The PI-rez rule.

I like this class, but have the wrong engine now. My old 638 would be been perfect for this class, & at my weight. Good stuff.

weight break for no bars is pretty common in small tire racing.... it takes away your safety net.... nothing said about a set of wheelie bars weighing 50lbs....

it doesnt make sense to me to have the original OL632 rules and have a large following for it and then other people take that class and change the rules...

but whatever, i'll still come 100lbs heavier and go rounds.
