Hi gang!!Dirttrackdave here,
have a silly question, think i know but will ask any way.will 69-72nova kit ( old pr0) still run as a pro stock? Have not really followed drags since 70's.
know bracket is running at an et and if faster you are out?
If Nova kit fits,can it be built with kit schackles? Photos of that time show
cars with just bent springs. Thanks guys. .?. .?. r:r r:r

Dirt, just about anything you can come up with will fit in the drag series, its done on the handicap so there is really no "Classes" the car has to fit in. You can have a rail dragster paired up next to a P/S 60 impala and the winner is the luck of the draw. Enter something per the instructions with realistic HP and times and you are on your way! I think you will enjoy it. Your Nova would be fine.
Ordinarily I am insane, but I do have lucid moments where I am merely stupid.
I never TRY to hit another car. But when I do I make sure its a Prius.

Yep, Lefty as usual is right. :))) Technically in real life anything could be a bracket car but we want actual drag racing cars, so matter how stock the class of the sedan is,or exotic the dragster is it would be fine. The Nova will be fine, in fact Dannyboy won with a SS class Nova last year , but for what its worth, the series doesn't involve "dialing in" a certain time, and losing if you "break out" of it and all that. If it were the real thing, what we do would be called running on an index, considered the natural time for your cars given power and weight ratio, but it is used only to determine that the P/S 61 Pontiac for instance would have say a 6 second earlier leave time or handicap than the 70's funny car it may be running against. It's all luck of the draw anyway, but Don does a great job of making it feel like you are there round by round.

The Southern Fryed Drag rules call for dedicated drag racers, not dual purpose street/bracket racers. The wilder the better, but Stock is fine, as long as it doesn't look like grandma's car. maddr

Has a checkered past.

Stand on it....brakes only slow yoou down.

:P Nobody said you couldn't do that. The aero will kill you, but since they're handicap races, it shouldn't matter. The ruels do state that we would prefer new builds. not re-cycled cars.
