Make it one stage 8.5 slick or 275 radial and cubic inch limit, you will have alot of cars and i would say cars that dont run here all of the time will come for this? hope it happens looking to buy a car right now and come back to race and not watch, with out selling the house wife and kids LOL. :mrgreen: :thumbsup: :bringit:

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:


Brad has nailed it. I'm still curious on the suspension part. :thumbsup:

No cross member mods.factory front seat carpet ect, no fiberglass ,lexan,or body mods no wheelie bars.did i miss anything lol


So are you singling me out. :lol:


Canted valve small blocks are NOT budget...

I would like to see this class go back to the way it used to be when it was what you know not how much you can spend. Iron heads, iron block, that would keep the cost down some what, any time you put a bunch of restrictions it just cost more to cheat, and we know thats racing. Keep the engines small under 500 cubic inches, any factory trans and the 8.5 slick. Let them do what they want to the interior just as long as it is safe, this is a heads up class not a street car. Just my 2 cents but I would sure like to race heads up on a budget and still keep a roof over my head :|

I have always loved that idea,even if not for this class.If you wanted a true budget class,a $3k engine (not including carb,ignition,etc.)claim would sure make for an interesting class!
