Should pdra pro boost and nhra pro mod allow screw blowers in? I personally see no reason why screw blowers are “outlaw”. This past year we’ve seen the pro charger perform strong in outlaw racing and in pdra pro boost.

They already have places for them to race. NMCA, MWPMA, NEOPMA and ADRL pro extreme. Why force organizations into something they Clearly don't want.?? PDRA owners probably don't want them and they damn sure not running NHRA unless they are in TAF of TAD.

Car counts struggled everywhere last year. If you could have another couple cars per race why wouldn’t you capitalize on that? Also who exactly would you lose?

Too many places to race. The screws are out racing somewhere, it's not like they all sit around and collect dust. So even if you allow them in other sanctions, you are justing moving cars around, not actually improving car counts across the board.

Like Dan said, nobody is going to build a new screw car because they are now legal. Someone may switch from a roots to a screw. But all those little guys that are currently competitive with screws are going to get donkey stomped back into retirement. Then we are back here looking for a place to race because Jackson run .15 quicker than them with the same rules and they got a OD reduction or weight.

It would improve pdra pro boost car counts and maybe we won’t have to watch more pro charger domination

All the guys wouldnt be switching to Pro Charger if there wasnt an advantage over existing boost combos. Time to stop being scared of the big bad screw. It can be regulated and controlled. Screws less maintenence and cheaper and can have the same outcome as a roots. Its like hating screws is a tradition, not a legitimate concern.

When you buy a screw blower you get a screw blower unlike when you gotta spend an insane amount on a roots blower or you’ll be going 6.00s and 235

There's nothing that can't be solved with weight and overdrive %.
