No!

There are actually guys who can not run under these indexes?

Since It worked so well for comp??

Let's go the other way and run off the national record. You run under, you're the new record holder and come apart. It's a performance based eliminator, some people seem to forget that. Put up or shut up!

And while we're at it the quotas are 65 cars let's, have it a 64 qualified field. 1 car doesn't qualify and you have a 6 round race. no bye runs.

ABSOLUTELY
PERSONAL INDEX=POOR IDEA Right on ERNIE!
If they make it a 64 car qualified field, AHFS would getfixed pretty darn quick, AND they could open the quota up to 80 cars FREE MONEY! Half back if you don't qualify :O and still have a limited amount of rounds ( controllable, profitable and we would all know how fast each other is!) I would still go even if I was only a tenth or two under!

After a long departure from racing and now racing a stocker, it has been an intetesting learning curve.
Class racing has changed a bunch. LOL. Whats stock in a Stocker? Not much I found out! They are more like SS cars. SS cars with hood scopes are more like the old Modified Production or Comp cars.
One thing has not changed, the more money you spend and the harded you work at it, the faster your combination will go. This will never change.

Consider a separate FS eliminator, all 2008 and newer cars. 128 field for Stock/SS combined eliminator, 2007 and older cars.
All non OEM hood scoop cars in to Comp eliminator W/ a new rev limited option class ( to attempt to control costs) and they must be driven up and back.

All of this could reduce the car counts in stock and SS allowing more competitors to enter.
Factory Showdown guys get what they want. The Stocker guys get those 8.0 cars out of the eliminator. The Comp guys get more cars and maybe just save the eliminator. The new class that has some cost controls ( 80K Comp engines costs are a bit over the top). And if the guys with Modified Cobalts etc don't see Comp as an option, put a flat hood on it and race SSGT

Just my perspective as to a way forward.
Would there be more winners than losers?

Why not leave things as they are and just show up and race?

These indexes are SO soft, if you have put something together that can't run well under the index, you need to be testing at home figuring out why your so slow. Not expect NHRA to make rule changes to just make you immediately competitive without the work the rest of us have put in our cars. It's not just money. That is et brackets. You can do that at home.

For a lot less money and better pay back.
The index is par and you want to see how far under you can get.
The challenge is the thing.
