    2011 Turbo Street Radial Rules:

    (Amendments noted in BLUE - 2/24/11)
    (Amendments noted in Orange -6/19/11)

    General : TSR is a class designed for everyone! With a NO LIMIT on turbo, No restriction on Engine, No restriction on Trans, No restrictions on rear ends, pretty much allows anyone and everyone to be able to have a class to race in with as minimal restrictions as possible. You will have the stage engine guy's on street tires that won't be able to launch or use the trans brake like the guy's with the drag radials and trans brakes! this should make for some pretty neat racing...


    1. TSR will be run with a “heads-up” pro tree start and off of a pro ladder.
    2. No peer technical inspections relating to safety equipment rules by class participants or peers. The track safety personnel will make all final rulings on safety related items.

    Tsr

    After starting this class last year and seeing the decent car count we had for the very first race it was almost sad to see this class be left back so with the advice from others on starting it back up I decided to start it up again but this time with a new twist. The twist is, now all THS cars that competed last year will fit into TSR this year. Not to leave out the True street tire cars I will personally give away prizes to the fastest car on street tires (Not a Drag Radial) plus this class has picked up new sponsorship for the 2011 season. We look forward to having you all race with us and have a great year of winning some decent Cash money & prizes

    plugs and ring question

    How do the plugs and rings work?
    Do we have to take off the air intake and intercooler pipe of the compressor and exhaust respectively?

    The plug would be for turbo and rings ar to measure the mm of compressor and exhaust wheel?
    who will measure all of this and be in charge at each race?
    Asking as I know they did this in TSM in the past but never really saw what how etc

    Precision Turbos

    Just as I was thinking about changing back to the original cover that came on my turbo and trying TSR I see the cover that came on my turbo is illegal as it has the holes drilled in it?
    What is the point in not allowing these covers if they came this way from Precision?
    Are you against Precision turbos?

    Clay,
    The turbo check is real easy. Just pull the MAF pipe off and someone will measure the compressor opening. If you want to run your other turbo, it looks like you may need to swap covers. This is still way, way cheaper and easier than converting it to a THS turbo. That requires sending the turbo in and getting a new backing plate and cover.

    The ported shroud turbo was an oversight in the rules by me and it should be allowed. with that being said and this the starting of the new race year and no races have ran yet I will gladly change that rule and allow the ported shrouds. Just trying to make things easier for the racers!

    I see any waste gate is allowed so if my is an external waste gate exhausted to the atmosphere then it's allowed? Just wanted to verify. :cool:

    I would like to welcome all the racers to the TSR class. it looks to be a exciting class.

    I hope to see some new faces along with some old ones in the staging lanes.

    This class sure seems to open the doors even more over THS. When one runs a true street radials the sky is almost the limit on the TURBO.


    Could we see a TSM car with street tires. Hope you guys can drive on ice !!
