Default Good news! R&P Steering legal in SS/AH

SECTION 12A: SUPER STOCK, BRAKES & SUSPENSION: 3, STEERING, (Page 6) (10/3/2022)
Aftermarket OEM replacement gear box permitted. SS/AH rack & pinion steering permitted. General Regulations 3:3.

My buddy races a 60 vette in modified. If they approved R&P for modified I could understand but.... Turning SS/AH into comp cars more than Super STOCK! SMH.....

Wait! I thought it was a safety issue??!!

10hp for $5k.... Sounds like a good idea to grow the class!

I sure hope so Mike. Waiting on pistons right now. Unbelievable delays with part supplies but all going according to plan otherwise. Sure wish I could put a rack in the corvette as the steering linkage hugs the ground and the pan.

That is sort of my point here. If I am worried about parts exiting the pan and taking out the steering linkage I have bigger issues than a rule change to a rack and pinion. I see the rule change as Hp - losing center link through the pan, Better header clearance on drivers side and once one of the top guys do it, they all need to. Rack and pinion at chassis shop $, New stainless headers on drivers side $$, new oil pan $. Have fun without me and see you in the eliminator!

Maybe I'm old school but I like to keep the stock in Super Stock. The way the factory built them and adhere to the rules in the rulebook. I don't intervene on these Stock threads as I don't race a stocker but makes me sick to see the bending of the rules and that our models for class racing are unsustainable. How many kids that ARE interested in Stock and SS can afford to build a competitive car aside from an obscure combination avoiding a heads up. Good luck as our classes are dying off faster than replacements are coming in.... Rant over and see you guys in '23. Shoot-out vette and Eliminator SS/AH car lol!

Where is that Vette Shootout? I have a 65 bought new. Can we run with plug guards on it? Phish

If it's allowed in AH, then keep it there, since AH has the own class, they should NOT be allowed to run the eliminator, or let all the others put one in.

Do you think going to R&P is going to make any car faster? The change may make it safer. I do believe an AH car kicked the rods through the pan and locked up the steering. As far as not allowing them to race in the eliminator is a stupid comment. How many Hemi Shoot Out races are there that really count in a year? Only one that counts, Indy. Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone! Dyno

Yes, reduced windage in pan with centerlink tube removed, better header on drivers side. 5 to 10 hp and once one of the top guys update.... who can or will leave 5 to 10 horses on the table now. At the dutch the 4 cars in the semi's were almost identical. All had a shot at winning and was a great race!

My street Hemi has same centerlink going through pan as do a lot of other SS cars. My Corvette has centerlink hugging pan where if a rod comes out could do the same thing. If its safety from a rod taking it out, lets legalize aluminum rods.....

Brian, I agree 100% but really think no SS car should have a R&P besides front conversions or cars that came from factory with them.

Maybe better get rid of those pesky front torsion bars at the same time ! Coil overs, for safety, of course. A guy could bump his head on those dangerous torsion bars while installing the headers.
