The "I gotta dumb performance question" thread!!

Here you go guys. Here's a thread in which you're safe to ask any "dumb" performance question you may have without having to post a thread about it. Ultimately you can find out the answer using SEARCH but some people refuse. So here's your ask away and get out of jail free thread. Enjoy......

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.

it also says unaltered which tells me unmodified and none of our cars qualify. It could mean unaltered bodies, but I doubt it.

Well..... reading more on YellowBullet, it looks like you may be right Andy. It is meant for cars such as the GTR, 911 Twins, etc.... that can run 10's bone stock. They're saying even a K&N will change that then you have to "play by the rules". Still sounds kinda shitty to me though.

Why are/were (unless it changed this year) Twin Turbo setups covered under the multiple power adder class?
