    nhra rules

    thanks guys, im referring to a camaro,not my monte.i dont want to install a roll bar in my monte. so i bought a pro street camaro to put my 496 bbc and 400 trans. in. ill small block the monte and drive it.(the deal is in progress for the camaro) ill probably cage the camaro just for the added chassis strenght .

    nhra rules

    anyone know the rules for racing a t-top car.car will most likely be a mid 10 second car. ( the 3700 lb. monte went 11.52 with wheelhop and traction problems) right now the car has a 6 point roll bar , and i will be making it a full cage . so do you have to take the t- tops out to run below a certain et.or do they make you leave them in?
