So is it still possible for a small block NOS to run with a blower?? Can a 4.80 be ran with a small block at 2950# and still be running for the next pass if it does?

Didn't a NOS car have the prior record at 4.85? No one thought that could be done, but it happened. It's natural progression of a class. Records will always be broken. That's what they are there for.

I don't think so at 2950. I know Vincent has been 60's( on a bigger tire/bars, but I'm using a small block as an example) but he was super light. Most n20 small blocks can't go an 80 on 315s, much less 275s at that weight. Even if the weight is dropped for sb n20 cars, most of them can't get that light anyways.

Yes you are correct!! And that guy is building a new blower car as we speak! Why would he build a blower car if he is the fastest sb NOS car?

Same reason, I am. I'm sick of blowing shit up, and trying to replace things between rounds.

However someone will figure out how to do it, without blowing it up. I ran out of patience, as I am sure smith did too.

So should the sb guys change to something else? Or should things be slightly adjusted to combos to try and keep a level playing field??

Well..I beleive if a SB NOS car can't stay together, & the owners are getting tired of rebuilding motors, yes its time to look else where to be able to run up front without frying motor parts.
Its hard to police combos from what iv'e seen in the little time I've just been involved in this. 1 there is not enought time & 2nd no one wants to be the one to go around & make sure its level or to keep it in check.. john does the best he can do,but lets be honest it takes more than just walking around a car to make sure everthing is right.
