So what's the carb stack for, part of the target acquisition system? Or a beer can holder?

Nonhog I passed tech at a local track after staying up late making a battery hold down, after misplacing mine, they never opened the hood.
I guess my car looked slow.

mustang6147 You need atleast a window net. In the 11 second or down to 10's you only need a jacket and proper helmet as well.

I passed tech once then at the starting line they stopped me, and played rules, this was after I passed tech. It was a very minor issue, I say it was track politics.

IHRA is more lax, however if it is a friday or sat night race, with no points, you will get away with more.

You're reading my mind.

ags111075 Thanks guys I will put lexan in it. Everything else should pass I had three 10.0 legal cars and a 8.50 legal camaro. I just wasn't sure on the no windows
03-06-2012 05:38 AM
stich626 I'm going to say yes..
letsface it. if a flopper has side windows..

Last time I was up at the drags, everyone had to have their windows up. before a run..

you might not need tohave them IF you run a window net..

firesuit for a 11 sec ride.. no..
jacket maybe,

order a rule book..
I think you are going to find you are going to need to add something, even if it's bolt in plex

I don't think it is required as long as you wear a helmet, but it's been a long time since I have been to the drags I would just go by and ask the strip management what their rules are just to be safe any pics of your rat?
