the only dealings I ever had with getting a car certified , I had to show the inspector in the book where it WAS legal after he failed it . he then changed his mind and tried his best to find something else wrong because I proved him wrong...I will travel furthur to NOT race at a nhra track..they are way out numbered by good local tracks,,,JMO

The argument of $$$ is pretty much invalid amongst people that would drop 3 months worth of paychecks on a set of heads and 50 bucks on their girlfriends birthday.

I only run a few times a year for fun...the biggest hassle for me would be having to keep the sfi cert up to date on all the parts like flex plate,trans shield etc...it sucks tossing out seatbelts you have only used 5 or 6 times...only using the belts as an example cause they are easy to swap and not that big a deal but what do you do with flexplates and shields etc?How long are they good?

I do have good stuff on the car it's not cobbled up..I don't have a trans shield cause it will not fit but everything else is there.

Flexplates and shields are 5 year certs. Composite shields fit pretty decent in Nova/Camaro tunnels.

The seat belt rule is the one that used to get to me. 99% of all racecars are kept indoors when they are not at the track. The seat belts are not degrading due to UV rays and are as good when removed as when they were installed. The seat belts that came in your privately owned vehicle are nearly always exposed to direct sunlight and they are never replaced unless the seat mechanism screws up. Seems like ripoff to me.

Correct me if I'm wrong but... I think the 2year expiration only applies to the mesh type. Get the ribbon type they last FOREVER :?
Also you need 1 5/8" for both mild and moly steels, the moly can be thinner.083" mild steel .118"

Tod you don't need any sfi equipment on the chassis to get the sticker, but you do to race.
