    My buddy made a little vid of some shots and stuff from yesterday. I was told that I couldn't run anymore due to being too fast... Oh well enjoy! :banana:

    I would rather hear the cars than the music.

    There is that certain sense of accomplishment when they tell you you're parked

    Congrats OP are you going to do a cage? up here they give you a warning to slow it down if you don't have the safety mods required.

    You can keep running as long as your not doing full out 1320's.

    If you go quicker again then they turf you and won't let you run,plus they remember your car so now you do need the cage and other mods.

    Depends on where you are it seems. In Ohio there was a track we frequented, and they were laxed on the rules a bit, I ran below the index quite a bit without a roll bar and stock belts as well as my father. I even watched some guys go without a helmet,,,yikes!! I at least had that. Ironically it was a guy in a blown cobra like Packy's running high 10's.

    Here in Arizona I got parked right away, and if you even run remotely close to 11.50 they start keeping an eye on you with friendly reminders when you pick up your ticket (a bit overkill if you ask me)

    One year I barely got my 02 SS convertable through tech. Being a vert the cut off is 13.50. The tech guy new the car should go quicker and almost wouldn't let me run at all. I told him it was my wifes car and I didn't know how quick it was Told him it was stock (and it nearly was with just headers and a converter) Went 12.76 and that was the end of my day

    Tracks here in AZ seem to be more strict, maybe even a bit extreme. So I don't race my stuff as often anymore.

    did they tell you you coundn't run anymore period or unless you had a helmet and or cage? That happened to me at my home track. Ran a 7.76 told us with no helmet we couldnt run anymore. Congrats to you!

    They told me to either slow it down or park it since neither of my cars had a roll bar. I'm not there to see how slow I can make the car

    These aren't cars I'm interested in sticking roll bars in, so unless I hit a track a little more lenient, it's racing days are over. It's been 3 years for the chevelle though, they probably wouldn't recognize it, and I've made some changes in hopes of making it quicker,,,hmmmm

    Yeah, once it's done though, it's not much fun anymore. Those cars just don't go to the track anymore for me so they are relagated to street duty for the most part now.

    If I go down to the track for some fun, I just take something slower so I can race all day and not worry about it.

    No cage for the Cobra that I daily drive. Now, my TA is currently getting a 6 point roll bar right now due to being thrown off the track here multiple times. I have officially been limited to the 1/8th mile only in the Cobra twice now. A few years ago at this same track it was ok to run whatcha bring and have no issues but they are getting some bigger venues and races to come here now so they have had to tighten up the rules. No worries soon the TA will be back up and ready to run 9.90's and get me limted to the 1000' mark for going faster than my cage is certified to. LOL! Actually they will not be so strict once they see a bar in it. I don't think they will even care.
