Default Re: Hemi Head Ruling

Stewart, that's not what I meant. I realize the rules for sections like the carburetors cross over. I was saying that if a section is written in Super Stock, it replaces whatever it said in Stock. If that wasn't the case then nobody can run head studs either. It says in Stock, cylinder head studs prohibited, and nothing in Super Stock. This is no different than the valve cover bolt hole issue. But like you said, the key is enforcement. Whatever the rules are they need to be the same for everyone.

This whole thread was started because I wanted to shed some light on the situation. I sat around for months while guys were accusing us of cheating and ruining the class. I want nothing more than to protect the rules and play fair. We have been cutting into the valve cover bolt holes forever and have been through teardown enough times to fill our wall full of records. And not once did I ever hear anything from anybody about valve cover bolt holes. If it was illegal you would think somebody in the last few decades would have said something.

Either way we're moving on and going racing. We're super excited to go down South and support the cause while others just use it as another excuse to not go racing.

As far as I can tell it was illegal right up until the "EXCEPT AH" was recently added.

we didn't know about any of these rules. We only know about everything else and who's cheating besides us. Hood scoop mods, mill intake flange as much as possible, maybe C clamp manifold to block! and the list goes on and on. If the people guilty of this would read the rule book as much as they respond to this thread there would be no thread on this. Stock and Superstock used to mean something at one time. The credibility of the class and most in it are gone. What a shame.

Two Scoop: From NHRA today

Racers to be able to easily obtain factory correct components which will be tuned and modified within existing rules (not redesigned) to maximize performance capability

For your convenience I have it in French

Coureurs à pouvoir obtenir facilement les composants corrects d'usine qui seront accordés et modifiés dans des règles existantes (non remodelées) pour maximiser la capacité de représentation

Me and the Robinsons are HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
