    We also have to assume nobody builds there car to this races rules. Car count is more important than rules (at least to me) but one has to wonder if the parts keeping them out would really make a difference in the long run for race results. What do the other auto guys say?
    02' TT Z06
    00' Audi S4
    02' Tundra
    02' Honda Superhawk slow, but sounds fast

    The spool was like $180. A good diff would have been way more.
    I could throw a couple bean bags in the back if it counts as a seat.

    I may be wrong but aren't you needing new tires anyway? Maybe you bought some slicks and i didn't see that...

    I think if its going to be advertised as a street car race then make it a street car race. Drive from Cedar Rapids to Cedar Falls, race, drive home, if the car cant make it then its out. I dont think anyone would argue the cars that complete dragweek arent street cars and 80% of those would not be legal to enter this event. Allow chase vehicles so if there is a break down its less of a hassle.

    There is some real nasty street cars around here and I think we owe it to the spectators to accurately represent this area in a non-pussified way.

    so what rules would have to ensure that this stays a race for the slower guys like it was designed for and ran the last 5 years? the guys that don't race small tire or 10.5. not the "can drive" or "legal" to drive BUT the guys that normally drive it for the occasional weekend cruise, weekend warrior, occasionally drive it to work, etc. the guys that own a set of tires other then just slicks for their car. how are you going to keep the 12-13 second car guys from dropping out of the event?

    or would you be happier if we just named it "pussy street auto class" ?

    Ryan I hate to break your heart but the slower guys arnt so slow anymore. It's no different then The manual class getting faster like they did last year. Rules will need alters with time or the racers that have supported since day one will have been ran out of a Race. Look at batwood for example his car use to run 12.60s it would not be normal if he was still running those times.
