...or maybe I didn't.

I still need a tach, manual rack & pinion (I'd lke the quick ratio), 5pt harnesses but I won't buy those until I'm ready to go because they expire, manual offset master cylinder, brake lines, maybe some Kirkey seats (I hate the Scat Procar seats I have. They look nice but I don't fit well) and probably 17 other things I can't think of off the top of my head. Let me know if you can do anything with that list and we will go from there.

Hey Cale.. There was one other thing.

How about a larger set of balls so I'm not afraid to drive the thing. Preferably ones made of steel!! You know.. The same kind Chuck Yeager had.


Am I going to need some kind of license to drive this thing? I have no idea what the rules are. I don't know anybody that does this stuff. I just want to haul butt..

Will a pilots license work? I have one of those. I can land several different types of airplanes....so I'm thinking I can land a 1993 Ford Mustang too!


And I have a Class A CDL with Hazmat endorsement!! Surely one of those will work.

Quicker than 10.00 you will need a comp license. And a cage.

Chris you will need a comp license with a physical card every year and the cage will need to be certed quicker than 9.50 or faster than 135mph. Funny thing is it is the same physical as our DOT physicals but they still want one yearly. The cage should certify to 8.50 just have to have decent welds with good penetration and no grinding of welds!!!

A racecar shop should have a guy that will come certify cages usually about $75 around here. A decent shop should be able to look over the cage and give you some help if their are any issues before you pay the guy to show up to cert it.

I believe the comp license consists of making 2 60" passes then 2 180" passes then 2 330" passes in fornt of 3 license holders and they become your sponsors. I may be wrong on some of it but that is the way I understand it.

P.S. When you make the passes for your license make sure the car will go fast enough to warrant the license or they won't sign off.

That's cheap. I'm looking at the NHRA chassis cert on my car (8.50) and it cost $190.

It just depends on how much the guy that is doing it wants to charge, classic supply and demand deal.

Hey thanks for the info guys. That helps. I knew about the "NO" grinding the welds so it is all untouched. I think it should certify to 8.50 pretty easy. The cage looks really good and the welds are a lot better than I've seen on most out at our local track. I have talked to the local guy at our speed shop. They do have somebody that will certify it. BUT.. It is $160 for that. But hey.. What is another $160 after the $30,000 or so that I have already spent.

Anything I do on my car costs me double.... as it seems the wife starts asking for something of similar value shortly after the car parts show up.

Coincidence or....?

Physical is actually every other year... Trust me I have my Pro License in NHRA, ADRL, IHRA, and FIA... LOL!

Chris... as for Belts, and safety stuff... I got you covered. Also, I might have a seat company that you would really like, but it is a little more pricey... but the stuff is wicked! We just need to get you a flaming river rack for that UPR K-Member. That is easy.

As for driving it.... that isn't nothing but a thang... I would fall asleep before the stripe...

NHRA will require that you use this form...

NHRA PHYSICAL FORM

Here is a link to the physical form and also the licensing info.

http://www.nhra.com/competition/form...ookieSupport=1

It is pretty straight forward.

The DOT stuff won't work... It all has to do with insurance and they cover their butts.

I'm not really worried... I've been 350 mph 6 inches off the ground. That's almost the same thing. And I know what you mean. I take a nap in between 2nd and 3rd in the Vette all the time!
