I asked Pat at NHRA the same question but didn't hear back. I would think so. I've tried the CSR on my old Super Stock car. Not user friendly at all. You end up cutting something to make it fit on a A-Body Mopar anyway. I've gone 440 B/SA in my Dart so I figure the CSR is worse with it. Scared to spend 500.00 to find out.

A steel shield is good for 5 years. A blanket is good for 2 years.
