Geoff, I want some of that 2/3 stuff (not with you). David, bring a 68 Dart as well. Fun time. I was always taught what goes around comes around. Great job Kevin and always great to hear from Uncle Jeff. Stephen

Unlike Stock and Super Stock you guys actually hold all the cards because the OEM's are still engaged at the Showdown level and nhra likes their money. You guys should form your own Showdown Association and then each group of OEM racers can select a member from their group to form a 3 man advisory panel. Then this panel can hammer out all of these problems. Each group would vote on a resolution provided by the panel and if it is approved, hand it to nhra and the OEM's and tell them this is what you want. You guys are spending all the money and doing all the work - the OEM's and nhra get much more out of it than you do. It could also be considered as a peace treaty.

^^^^ Racers from different brands agree on something?!
Might add, only the loser's and the ones that can't keep up want rules changes.
I can see it now "I'm a tenth ahead of the rest, put 50lbs on me"

Oh yee of little faith. The equipment seems to be the real problem. Get that hammered out and let the chips fall where they may.

Don't normally agree with Bruce, however, this makes perfect sense! If you Showdown guys don't do this, your group will go the way of Pro Stock Truck. Jim

Who cares as long as the 9" tire rule exists, it's the equalizer.

9" tire....it will ALWAYS be the micro-processer doing the "real work". If they spin, you can't win. Next up to watch for is the RPM-to-time controls. Set the engine to only rev so fast on time vs rpm somewhere in the digital ICM box and you can get down the track.
I hope you all find an answer, great fun watching 9" tire cars go 8.0s.
