Default Burst Panels

When I started helping on my buddy's Blower car, he bought 4 or 5 burst panels as spares. Now in 2 years I think we have used 2 panels. He was telling me that these panels are 25-30 bucks each.

I was looking for stuff on Ebay the other day and there was an ad for Burst Panels with the SFI sticker on them, in packages of 10 for basically 100 plus freight. I told my buddy about the ad and he thought it was too good to be true,

Has anyone tried these? Are they the same quality as the expensive ones?

I too saw that ad, does look cheap. You could check out good viberations at.

(www.dragparts.com)

I've dealt with them a few times and i think they have a deal on burst panel going on right now. I know i got an email from them that the SCE gaskets were on sale whitch i run.

The orig 4 we panels we bought were from Good Vibrations. I have bought a bunch of enderle and blower odds and ends in the past. It just struck us funny as to the "good" deal that is being offered. The 2 guys on ebay that are offering these have good feed back and by their rating, having been selling for some time. A tech guy told us that there is only 1 company that supplies the SFI burst panels. I think we are going to take the plunge and buy a set. get them home and compare them to the ones we have. When I get them I'll post our findings.

I don't remember was the 10 for $100.00 SFI certified, because if you're running NHRA at major events they will have to be certified.

Just a question??

Hey George
do you have that link to Robert Rheels burst panels, i don't remember if they were bubbled or flat and if they are not bubbled it takes much more pressure to blow them than it does a bubbled panel.

Thanks, Margaritaman,

That's definately a good deal, and show SFI also, think i'll buy those also instead of $23.00 at Good Viberations.
