    Guess I'll bring some sandbags.

    Sorry David, can't bring myself to join a Mudstain forum just to break nuts. I'll let you guys do that at the track.....I'll be behind their trailers welding the rotors to the axle tubes.

    You think they will not let those running in the low 11s high 10s run without a cage?
    Hate to make a trip and not be able to make a full pass.
    I know I need a cage for safety, but its a pure street car, don't really want to put a cage in.

    This is from the NHRA website.

    When do I need a roll bar or roll cage, and what should it look like?
    A roll bar is required in any convertible running 13.49 seconds or quicker in the quarter mile, and in other cars beginning at 11.49. The roll bar is accepted in vehicles running as quick as 10.00 second e.t., provided the stock firewall and floorboard is intact, other than for installation of wheel tubs. The rollbar must be constructed of minimum 1 ¾ inch o.d. x .118 inch wall mild steel tubing, or 1 ¾ x .083 chrome moly tubing.

    If the floor and/or firewall has been modified, then a full roll cage is required beginning at a 10.99 e.t. A full roll cage is required in any vehicle running 9.99 seconds or quicker, and any vehicle running 135 mph or faster (regardless of e.t.). The roll cage must be constructed of minimum 1 5/8 o.d.x .118 mild steel tubing, or 1 5/8 x .083 chrome moly tubing.

    Roll Bar

    That's what I thought. My roll bar has been good enough at Noble for the last 5 years. Hope they don't change it :mad:

    I am knocking on your door Mike. Just had the trans done. All billet and a brake. Just had the passenger header rewelded and can hopefully get a false knock issue corrected. I am hoping its not the new valvetrain. It is a bit noisy. My best times have all been at Noble. Hopefully, I can get her in the 10s.
