Open up the number of entries at national events and make it a top 64 qualified field. The ahfs will be quickly rectified.

It was definitely a rumor, I heard it at the track. They were also supposed to be scanning heads so I take it all with a grain of salt.

Apparently they scanned the factory stock showdown cars. Just what I heard anyway.

I think by having 65 entries at every national race and take the quickest 48 cars would
work too.
You have to remember that some tracks don’t have the pit space and some tracks
have starting & finishing time curfews..

Barry Parker made some great points on people having to slow their stuff down when
it’s supposed to be a performance base class.
Maybe lowering All indexes by 2 tenths and have the trigger stay the same, racers
could run there cars all out without having to worry about getting a HP hit.

Well, the trouble I see with just whacking the indexes is that as NHRA continues to "liberalize" the rules (through action or/and enforcement) certain combos (I'm guessing the majority) keep getting left further and further behind. If the Racers running these "good" combos don't want to keep getting hit with HP then SOMEBODY (NHRA or the Racers) should figure out a way to legitimately get HP help to combos that need it without having to request it only to get 1-2 HP at a time AND eliminate the "baggers".
I also believe that NHRA should stop with all of the different "body combos" factoring.

AAAAANNNNNDDDDD, if a Racer triggers an automatic hit OR a review, he comes apart.

AAAAANNNNNDDDDD another thing that would straighten things out in a hurry, if you trigger a hit, then your engine is For Sale to the highest bidder, call it a Claimer, bring tools to take it out. Don't want to sell your engine? Go home for the rest of the year.
P.S., I didn't say I like this idea, I said that it would straighten things out in a hurry.

Im confused about this thread. A engine combo goes fast enough to earn HP, and now people want to move index or trigger number? I thought this was a performance class and if a motor is fast and legal then it needs HP. I get it that it was uncalled for due to red light run or driver lifted and still triggered review,but come on if it needs HP it needs HP. I would be upset if my combo received HP but I knew the game when I started. Take the hit and move on.

Maybe our Reps could address the AHFS this winter. By the way Billy is a great guy and let off on that run. Barry
Barry the problem is the Masshole. Who runs his car like. A dumbas
On 2 redlights.
And I text him he tells me. Go work on your car. Really
Next comment is I have more power than you. Really
And you brother gets hosed by a corvette The Wrong Yesr?
