[QUOTE explain the 30+ hp reduction jan 2014 on the 302 2bbl fffords ???????

Jack, if itís any help, I have personally given back 13 of my 30 hp gift! I started as a natural U car and now Iím a natural R car. If I keep this up Iíll barely be able to run the index in another 5 years.

Your friend in horsepower.

Question Re: I Need Help With A Math Problem

Are your sure all the HP came off at once, or was it multiple reductions over many years.

Unhappy Re: I Need Help With A Math Problem

really funny that one / two combos in D/SA GOT -30HP AND 9632 people care enough to view respond to larry's post ....

but when over 300 combos of 302 2bbl fords get -30hp (all fit u/sa itslast v-8 class) no one but me is pissed ...

minimum 2-3 top 10 qualifying spots at indy including several #1s but its only me beating a seemingly dead horse

All the best!
Not sure of what answers you may get from NHRA, as wasn't it them that made this move in the first placer??..

I think there are better educated responses here, rather than some Johnny Come Lately that NHRA believes knows their stuff, just because they know somebody and got a position.. just my opinion..

Guys,
The last sentence in the AHFS explains the math.

"Adjustments are rounded up to the nearest full horsepower even if the fraction is below 0.5 horsepower. As an example, 2.15 horsepower is rounded to 3 horsepower. The quickest run, by the combination being reviewed, is used to determine the adjustment percentage. The decision to adjust horsepower or to increase the index will be at the discretion of the AHFS Committee.

Unfortunately Larry !! Archimedes couldn't help you or anyone with this "math problem" We live in the world of upside down !! How is it possible ?? that a 66-283 with more compression an a bigger carb rated at 1 HP less than a 60 -283 ?? or a steel head 69 Camaro rated more than an aluminium head engine ?? Not to mention those FFFords who defy math as we know its !! Cheers !!
