There is no specific rule on tire size?
Also does it matter how many alky nozzles you have or if you run a plate? Say i run 3 nozzles is that okay?
Lastly no rules on running coilovers?
I’m interested in trying out the class next year.

Thanks

Also is there a restriction on where Alky can be injected? for example, compressor, direct into runners, alky plate systems......

Didn't see anything about that ...????? Plates and runners wouldn't matter to me. ( But I see no gain doing it. )

Sounds like coil overs are fine, fiberglass parts are ok, any tire that fits in the wheel well, any amount of alky injection as long as it's not the primary fuel.

So, what is a competitive time to run in the 1/8th here?

Is this a turbo size split winner class like...
61mm and below
62mm and up?

I don't see how any small turbo could really win so guys on the fence might bail.

Curious if this is the 2nd most popular race event? Sounds like it's fun.

3 bolt turbo.. 62mm and "UP". I believe BG is the only event now. Mid/low 6 in the eighth. Few in the 5s. They left but 1 is still legal in TAI. NO E85. Ya fill up at a local gas station at one time.

oh forgot weights... iron heads #3450
alum heads #3550

Ok 62mm and up is probably necessary to be respectable.

Looked like non intercooler cars could run E85, I'm still interested here if that's good info.

What do they do for iron heads under 3450lbs to make weight, stuff trunk, add a person in passenger seat. LOL

The E85 rule is specifically for 84/85 hot air cars. It is not meant to have a non-intercooled 86/87 running E85.

competitive times are 6.80ish to 6.30ish. There are a few 5 second cars that have moved on from the class.. ANY 3 bolt buick housing turbo is allowed. There are 67s as well as 6870s.

Oh, curious what's the advantage the 86-87 hot air would have, I don't know much about the 84-85s.

The entire point of the class is to have just a few rules and have fun. Any tire you want is ok since most run the ET Street, spray all the meth with as many nozzles are you like as long as you can make the gas station fill up rule...
