Good advice Tech.. Most of the problems come up when it's "not" a NHRA sanctioned event and the local guys are doing it. I dont have problems with tech because my car in all to date.

But I see them being a holes to one guy but lets it go with the next guy about the same thing.

6.1 Flywheel Shield, Spec 1.1 & 1.2
(2-Disc Max, or 3-Disc, 8-inch dia. Max) . . . . . . . . . . . . . 5 years
6.2 Flywheel Shield, Spec 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 & 1.5 Clutch. . . . . . . . 2 years
(Check with Manufacturer; May Be Only 1 Year)
6.3 Flywheel Shield, Spec 1.2, 1.3 & 1.4 Clutch . . . . . . . . . . . 2 years
(Check with Manufacturer; May Be Only 1 Year)

If there is no SFI tag on the piece at all, walk away.
Thanks for the great advice tech. I won't run quicker than 11.5 (ill be happy if I break into the 11's ) but It seems like I should still run something better than a stock bellhousing as it sounds like a huge saftey issue.

Yeah, it is a huge safety issue. Add to the fire, that some or most of the clutches and flywheels being sold today COULD be made offshore. A steel can is just is not that expensive. Check Racing Junk, maybe find a good used one that isn't dated.

Personal experience from years ago( 1963). A good friend of mine had a stock 55 Chev ,265 3 spd and it ran real good , and it was stock with a 4bbl carb. One day he wound it up and just as he was ready to shift to second gear the clutch exploded ip through the floor and in to his right foot. A piece of the pressure plate came up and bent his steering column and he couldnt steer. Luckily the road curved and he coasted to the shoulder where he braked with his left foot. So YES by all means run a scattershield . I went out the next day and bought one for my 55 which had a 283 with fuelie pistons a Duntov fuelie cam& solids that i was shifting at 7500 RPM.
