Haven’t seen much, just more FSS cars coming out of the woodwork. Based on what “First in the Sevens” Turk is doing with a six year old car though I’d suspect he’ll be the guy to beat. True innovator and competitor who keeps proving it, at this weekend’s Four Wide holding #1 through two sessions only the most recent example.

Well so far at least in our program we spent $12000.00 on factory body panels and cost of delivery to Bickel once the rules were published and now they are talking about utilizing a carbon body instead of the steel roof and quarters. SOS!!

Question Re: Factory X Updates

I thought this was going to be more of a retro pro stock and they’re already changing the rules
I feel sorry for you guys with money already invested what a kick in the nuts

I guess I can be thankful that the NHRA has already made this into something that no longer appeals to me....

well what i was told is that after they flush mount all the glass on the car to the NHRA rules it would be more cost effective to go fiber. Also it will help keep them uniform and help prevent the body from being altered. They are to be exact diemension of the stock body
