    Since racers are seldom polled on rule changes or non changes, I'll ask here.

    If you could change, remove or add just one rule in the NSS organization that you run in, what would it be. Why would that change benefit NSS?

    Not just for NSS, but all index/ bracket classes. It just makes sense.

      This would have made more sense than the last .25 index change. Good point longram60

      I favor the .25 second index change. Would have helped me in Indy.

    I agree, have ran a few races this past summer where it was in effect it had no bearing on how we stage or race..... Unless you're a fast car and hoping your slower opponent red lights. I like True Start !!

      I bet if you took a poll on that you have all Faster than 10 seconds wanting to keep it the way it is and all slower wanting to change. You perspective depends on your index.

          I'd like to see the rules on weight actually spelled out to avoid confusion

            You will get your wish on that.
            I asked Lonnie and Rollie at PRI to post it somewhere. They said it will be posted.
            2 boxes
            100 lbs each including the weight of the box for a total of 200

            For the record,. the NHRA tech guys still said 2 boxes for a total of 100lbs. NMCA is electing to go their own direction on this.

              My rule change would be sealed ignitions. They must get a date coded seal put on them at tech that are then spot checked in the lanes.
              I am not a fan of some of the boxes and laptops getting connected to them. It happened this year at Chicago and stirred up a hornets nest. I don't mind them using the ignitions. Just don't allow them to be altered at the track. That was happening at Chicago.

                Link to NMCA clarification in this forum

                It was pretty much what I said the NHRA Rules said

                To NSS That Means

                No more than two properly constructed (1/8" thick metal) weight boxes weighing no more than 100 pounds INCLUDING THE WEIGHT OF THE BOX
                You can have up to 100 pounds of REMOVABLE weight properly bolted to frame with 1/2" two grade 8 bolts
                You can have no more than 500 pounds TOTAL of ballast - IE: if you have two 100# boxes plus100# removable, you can have another 200# non-removable (like nuts welded) attached to frame

                Pass it on as you know there will be plenty inspections

                  Greetings all, this is my first post, I have been lurking and learning for some time waiting for the day I would be able to come out and play with yíall.
                  That time is here and I have a question about how strict the rules are for years of cars, the rules state that to run a Hemi dart it needs to be a 68,,,,,I have found I what looks like a sweet 69 Hemi Dart that I donít think I can resist. If I show up with that car can I run B/FX ?
                  Thanks,
                  Mike

                      Change whatever trim differences are to 68 and call it a 68.
