should run 5.90's in the eighth.

Last time out Went 6.10 with 1.31 60' but the electric shifter malfunctioned and I forgot to shift and hit the rev limiter.

thanks guys. Sounds like a real PITA and maybe I need to look for a different track.

Oh FYI the track is Lyons Raceway Park used to be E.T. Raceway. Don't know if they enforce the chassis cert rule or not but it is listed on their web site.

My car is certified but I didn't go through the hassle and cost of a license. My car runs 6.50's in the 1/8 for a reason. The way I look at it. I'm not going to pay the extra money to run 9.80's- 9.90's. I'll slow the car down. I would go through the trouble to run 9.50's

Depending on what class you run, You could just put a throttle stop on the car.

what sucks is, there is no ihra tracks in indiana left, 1 in michigan (i am sure that'll change this winter) and more dropping. Sucks to pay extra for nhra

It is a PITA, but it isn't any more of a PITA than building or maintaining a race car. I'm not saying this is the case with you or your ride, but I sure get tired of running against cars that are stopped or pulled back because they won't cert. Most of the time I find everything else to be just as neglected as the components required to cert the car. All the enjoyment is gone for me when I know I'm chasing junk at 175MPH. At the same time, the people I race with know that I have done everything humanly possible to ensure we get to the other end without getting tangled up.

I've also been told if a car fails to certify it is deemed unsafe to race at any speed. Meaning if they find out the pipe is too thin for 9.99, it's no good for 10.50.

There are a few short cuts you can take, if you know/feel that the bars are all in the proper location and you worry about the tubing thickness, find an engine builder who has a sonic tester (aka cylinder wall tester) for a few bucks you can have him check the thickness of the bars, this can save you some head aches when you take it too the NHRA offical, the other thing is if possible get the car certified somewhere other than at the track. At the track they seem to all think they are GOD and don't seem to have time for anything.
