this is all i have found on the subject

-Window net required (can be ribbon or mesh, no altering allowed unless done by manufacturer. No expiration date per 2008 NHRA rule book, but some have said 2 years on expiration/re-cert. Check with your local track or division).

Who told you you had to change it - local track tech or NHRA inspector ?

Window net in my car was ran for 12 years. No one said I needed to change it out. All Div 3 race tracks.

Damn SFI, all nets used to expire every 2 years. Is the material different now or something.
Make up their minds, I have 10 nets sitting here from the last 20 years.

NHRA book does not require ribbon type nets(mesh) to be SFI at all. Only the net types.

It says "a ribbon type or SFI Spec 27.1 mesh-type window net ..."

It further states that SFI 27.1 is for mesh type nets and is good for 2 years

so... Get a ribbon type and don't bother with the SFI re-cert crap.
