I like it.Factory block/heads is fine,although I think allowing aftermarket heads would be fair.It costs as much or more to prep a set of factory castings for performance use in most cases as what a way better set of aftermarket heads cost.Just my 2 cents on that.
I also like the idea of doing 8.5 slick or 275 drag radial.
By stock suspension,I assume you mean that bolt on upgrades are legal?As in shocks,springs,etc.?
I love where this is going,PLEASE throw us poor boys a bone!!! :thumbsup:

I like what Mitch and Jim said. I'm interested because I like Ozark and it looks like we won't be there with the "Little Truck". I would build somthin for this but I would need to to run else where. I say definitly OEM engine/tranny, 275 drag radial as I assume this class will be run at "Shoot Outs" and wouldn' want tear up track. FULL factory interior, stock suspension mods Slapper Bar and 90/10 shocks period. Why any Nitrous, wev'e not got a handle on it (LOL) but were comin. do you want that?

My little 270cc Brodix racerite oval ports are as close to an OEM head as you can get, just made out of aluminum. Who'd a thunk those little ports would feed my pumpgas (10.5-1) 505 cubes. :bringit: FYI I run a 9" slick and a 295/65/15 drag radial.

I'm definitely in for 275 D/Rs, Single Stage Nitrous Plate, and Stock Suspension. I think there are alot of guys that would be interesting in a class like this that can't hang with Procharged, Turbo, and Monster Big Block Nitrous Cars.

Thanks :thumbsup:

I would be in but the inline valve cuts me out. I have a sbc with canted valve heads. Image
How about BB and SB non inline valve and non-OE blocks N/A with a option for alcohol and nitroused sb OE or not blocks with no controlers and a -4 only line on a small M/T slick ? We have two cars that could fit in somthing like this.Jason


id think you would fall in the bb nitrous jetting and should be allowed

I think 500s10 is on to something, have a spec. jet size(n2o side only) for a small blk & smaller for big blk.
