so whats the deal with these new rules regarding roll cages? Is it just stock cars faster than 11.49 dont need a cage now or all cars 2008 and newer dont need one until 10.00??
Here you go.....
NHRA DRAGS: STREET LEGAL STYLE PRESENTED BY AAA (Page xiv) (5th paragraph)
Additionally Requirements and specifications for Street Legal are the same as
those for the Summit Racing Series with the following exception: Unaltered 2008
OEM model year and newer production cars running slower than 9.99 and 135
mph do not have to meet the requirements and specifications for the Summit
Racing Series except for the following: Convertibles and T-tops must meet
Summit Racing Series Roll Bar and Roll Cage requirements, All drivers must
meet the Summit Racing Series Helmet and Protective Clothing requirements.”
Basically says you need a cage once you go faster than a 9.99 or trap over 135mph IF your ride is newer than a 2008. I kinda think it's cool but kinda dumb at the same time. Our rides are the perfect example. There's no difference in builds from 06-10. Therefore if the 08-10 are good, so should the 06-07 models.
