mel,
You don't happen to have that SFI info for a roadster do ya? I had thought my car would only need helmet bars to pass now, but I hear there is a lot more to it.

I'll split the cost with you if you have it. I just hate having to pay them just to read the rules.  [-(

How much crap is in there? If its too much for me to do I think I'll T-stop it into the 10's (at NHRA tracks) and race w/o a sticker next year then maybe have it tagged next Winter.

Rick .. I think its just the helmet bars and gussets on the cage as shown in Mels pics. That rule was adopted from the SCTA and LSR ........

I thought it was 135mph, but either way if its too much I'll keep it under that next year as I don't want to mess with it after just putting it together. Will see about it later if it takes a lot of work.


HEY MEL!!! Got the spec?

Mel ... Did you take it to the guy in Clarksville ? He  used to come to your house and do them For a small serive charge of course .. like 50 $ back then, but ever since 2002 at least I have met up with him in a parking lot after he got off from work.

Bob Mandell in Culleoka can do IHRA certs. and I think the guy at B & B Chassis in Hoenwald can so NHRA certs, not positive on that, but will look into it for future interest.
