M/T shootout Drag Radial adapter horn

Postby Corey Anderson » Fri Dec 28, 2012 8:15 pm

What do they mean by adapter horn in the drag radial rules as far as turbo, is that the same as a reducer and are reducers allowed?

Adapter/Reducer same 88mm inlet that Al has a go/no-go gauge and I think it needs to come within a 1/16 of the wheel.

What is your combo?

-Maximum Turbo Size: 88mm (adapter horns are acceptable) Must pass go/no go gauge. -Maximum Procharger Size: F-1R or comparable. F2 legal with 3.875 inlet reducer,
mounted no further away than the original inlet flange. F2R & F1X is not legal!


88mm inlet go/no-go. So if if has a 88mm inlet it's legal the way I read it and built ours.

Do you still have the same car with the sb2 in it? It would be nice to see it back down to ORP.

Yes, same car and combo we've run around the midwest for the last few years. We're in STL now, so will make the races at Gateway and a couple down at ORP. The turbo is legal in x275 and is a true (large frame) 88, so it should be legal. However, as we found out at a few races (OTT5 was one), the housing is slightly larger than the 88 mm wheel (common sense right?). And a go/no go exactly 88mm is going to fit right through without touching. Just need Marty/Mitch to chime in and give their blessing and we'll be back down for at least the shootout and hopefully a couple more races.
