My thoughts on 2 cars is as follows interest/participation is down right now so why not 2 cars. As participation picks up up to 11- 15 people then restrict it to 1 car. That way you have your top 10 as well as a shark pool. That way the list would be easily amendable race to race.
Hey guys, Thought I'd start up a conversation about running more Outlaw style classes. Flashlight, no-prep drag racing is really hot right now and noticeably more popular than NHRA pro drag racing. Would you guys like to have more Outlaw classes? I was thinking of the following to keep costs reasonable;
T-jet - Gasser build chassis
X-Traction - Currently running with no weight restrictions
4G - Door Slammer 25 gram weight minimum
Inline - MM/PS 22 gram weight minimum
As long as your chassis is within the class rules then anything goes meaning any style car bodies. I like having a weight minimum so that details can be added such as chutes, blowers, wings etc.. I posed a question about entering more than 2 cars for each class in another thread and opening up the list to 10 cars....... My thought was that a newbie might feel they have a shot at the list if there were 10 positions. Obviously I should have put more thought into that because the top 5 guys will most likely occupy the bottom half of the list with their #2 car. A top10 list should be posted even if there are only 7-8 racers. We'd just identify the empties as vacant spots that are up for grabs.
I personally like one car per person and try and build interest in the class but there's no harm in trying 2 car teams? On the show you have Chief and the murder Nova teamed up, and Monza and Doc also teamed up. Spot blocking? Down under Pro Street Out laws starts tomorrow. Watch this space!!
