CHRIS T O T B it,s a difficult task you have chris to meany rules will turn people away,where as not enough rules will turn people away cos it,s just not worth competing if you dont stand any chance of winning.i for one want to see all the top cars running because thats realy what we all go to see,who wants to go to santa pod to watch a R W U B car doing a 15 sec run.dont know what the answer is ,but constructive debates can only help to come to some sort of arrangment.:wavey: NISMOMAN

Hi guys, I'm new on here but some of you know me, Its interesting to here peoples comments on the new rules but they are for safety, As Simon has mentioned they my look to altering the rules from the feed back gained from introducing them before the season starts, However the I dont see them easing up on the roll cage ruling, these are proven safety criteriors set by the MSA (NOT Santa Pod) Santa pod are enforcing them and if they ease up on the jap cars then all other racers will want the same break. Basically I believe it to be the stepping stone to taking it serious or not and these safety criteriors would cost less than 5% of what alot few of you already have spent in your cars. Not to mention with some chassis tuning many of you could go quicker anyway.

quote:Having read through the rules that concern our car, if we were to compete we meet all the regs 100% with Fuujin. I can see from some of them if Tim is to compete, his car is going to need a serious look at before it can run again having seen how the car is made as it doesnt meet a few of the regs. As for others, most dont have any of the specs for the regs so if you intend to run next year in the Pro class, you better read this asap and carefully digest it, its not too bad but you need to tick them off one by one and read them carefully. Its cool that anyone running over 150mph MUST have a parachute installed



To run faster than an 8.49 or quicker will require a tube car in the 2007 ruling, its states in the email thats the rules being run are from the 2006 rule book but basically in 12months time what was a 7.50 car will become an 8.50 car. this has effected many drag cars as even many of the supermod cars running box mainrails and CDS tube work will no longer be legal despite there class weight limits not requiring a light cro-moly tube car.

So if this is true Andy had better pull his finger out and thrash
the HKS Record:chuckle:

Before this 8.50 rule comes into play:chairshot

Pod

Was up at Pod today and bumped into Darren and David whilst there, David said that the rules were open for discussion as a starting point and were aimed at people making new cars,ie if youre about to build a new car, follow these rules as in future the rules will start to get tighter. Anyone who will actually race next year - its probably best to contact Santa Pod and air your views as to the content of the rules.

If no-one gives them feedback, they wont know they need amending and how to agree on something everyone can adapt.

Dave, where did the 409bhp come from? :eek: last i heard it was just over 300.
Well done mate! Hows the grip these days?

Mick, love the avatar! :chuckle:
I've done quite a number of things to the engine since I last ran at the strip.

Fitted a new AET turbos hybrid & different intake manifold.

It made 409 HP at the flywheel at just 10 psi.

I'm going to remap it for about 18-22 psi (depending on power output) on the 5th January.

As for grip, I have fitted a new suspension setup and am still waiting on my Bogart wheels and M&H tyres.

The car will easily run into the 11's this year without an issue, I guarentee that!

Cheers

Dave

Are you sure your car meets all the regs 100%

SC/PRO 1.2 Exhaust:
All cars must be equipped with exhaust collectors, headers or stacks installed to direct exhaust out of car body to rear of car.

Reading this it looks like side exit exhausts are not allowed

Doesn t that mean if its a side exit it must point towards the back ie not just to the side but slightly backwards? Otherwise I guess it would say exhaust must exit after the rear axle, or exit from rear of car only

I see that it says in the rules that you must maintain a OEM block

I dont think you will find that a HKS high deck block is a OEM nissan part.

Best of luck

Rules

A HKS Hi-Deck uses an RB26 block Tommy.

As I said before, if you will actually race, get in touch with Pod and air your concerns so they can make amendments.

Would be interested to see what happens to the likes of Dave and his Drag'Mera as its not using the OEM block anymore. Its an SR20DE rather than whatever it is Micra's usuall use.

Also the Focus Cosworths out there. Some of those are on Escort Cosworth Engines and running gear.

Matt Hadland on the 200 block.

etc etc...

These are all top competitors in their class so i guess they better voice their opinions sharpish!

I think that means a block from an OEM (car manufacturer), not a block origianally speced for that car.
ie, a Micra with an RB26 or even a JZ80 would be legal.
