Nice work.
I think I can figure out what an 8.50 index class is but where does one get to race in it? How many times a year?

We have about 4 tracks in the area they will run 8:50 10:00 and 11:50 indexes. Heads up pro tree. Atco, Cecil, and maple grove are some tracks doing it. Also pro dial is becoming a popular class. If you notice all the indexes are right where the brakes for more rules are i.e. 1150 is the cut off for a roll bar. 10 flat is a cut off for a lot of the 9.99 Certs, and 850 is the cut off of many other certifications i.e. roll cage etc.
most of these classes do not include electronics either, I run the 1150 index with my street strip car and I know we are not allowed throttle stops or delay boxes. The class started out was supposed to be all streetcar as usual most of these classes have morphed into something a little different

Had to create a bump out in the lower firewall to have some room for the fittings on the master cylinders.





Some parts coming in along the way.

This past weekend we had index racing. 6.0 to 7.5 in .5 increments. It was a all run so tree was staggered accordingly. We had around 40 cars and turned out to be fun. 1/8 mile
