If everything goes well with tunning...we'll hit PBIR wed 3/9.
PBIR is getting strick about tech...so I may hold back the runs if I do not feel is going to be a clean run with a nice 60ft (1.5x).
So lets see how it goes.

anyone know why they''re getting strict? Somebody must have blew the whistle on them....IMHO, if the car is stable to 190+ MPH....it can run 9's all day....too many rules and regulations!

That's a good question.I know a lot of NHRA teams test there,might have something to do with or could be insurance related? I agree to many rules and regulations in this world as is

The reason NHRA teams can test there (and all the other tracks) is because they pass tech.
"Street" cars that run bottom 9's and trap 160+ are obviously not allowed to run without proper safety gear at any IHRA or NHRA track. Individual track personnel have their own liability tolerances, but no track is going to allow more than one run in the 9's...and running a 2nd pass after a warning will most likely get you thrown out for good. MY CTSV just runs high 10's and even with my relationship with our local track director and the experience he knows I have, he still can't let me run the car again without a cage, etc. Of course there's an argument that with the speeds and safety equipment new OEM cars are capable of there should be new NHRA ET/trap rules....but it's not going to happen.

Just run 1/8 mile and get on the brakes hard so you stay in the 11's. With what I know about your set-up, a 6.0x @ 125+ is easily achievable. Once you're hitting 6.0x's, ask the tower to turn-off the boards and run a full pass. Most tracks will do this for fast street cars as it allows them to sidestep the insurance issue. They'll still give you a slip.

Good luck!

I think it is a great Idea. Next time I go up I will run "no times".

I didn't know turning off the tower made a difference. Cool news, hope it's true
At Bradenton dragway I made one run 11.1 sec. They told me all future runs will be no time. People were asking me what my time was after each run. Meet a lot of nice people.LOL. 10.96 was my best. Good luck
weds. hope n/t written on your cars helps.

GOOD LUCK AT! When you get to tech tell them you want to run N/T just like J.C. explained and they should be a little more tolerant. We are all looking forwards to your results.

Good luck and have fun! I'm trying to get out there with you tonight. If I make it I'll only be running on pump gas since I have a full tank. Save your best pass for the last pass and then just go home....maybe they will forget
