How about this: -

1) Edit post 1 just to say "This Thread is to publish your 1/4 mile achievements with Stock Twins."
2) Delete posts 2-5.

This will put my earliest post 2nd in the list and I can put the table in there and edit it at will.


erm, i went to do that but if you look at the first post you will see i made a bit of a mess of it, have PM\'d Glenn as i cant sort it either... :confused: hopefully he will be able to and i will just not touch this again before i end up turning the whole thread into a piece of modern art... :o

What about street legal drag tyres?

To be honest I would very much doubt if you could get into the 11\'s on street tyres. Street legal drag tyres - yes.

.btw - My opinion......I don\'t think it should be an issue about running slicks.  We are aiming for the fastest E.T. - slicks will help you do this faster.  Will also help you break things faster - but HEY, that\'s what competition does :)
Thanks,

Fair point. Perhaps we should edit the rules to just say "Must be street legal, including tyres - street legal dray tyres accepted".

Thoughts, opinions people?...

Glenn : I agree, and I\'m pretty sure most other people will as well - it was just down to the wording.  I\'ve updated the rules to state just "street legal".

I would add slicks then as street legal is without slicks, slicks are not legal on rd, and it will stop a million posts asking if ok. added fuel as that will get asked a million times as well.

All other modifications are allowed e.g. engine porting, uprated boost, slicks & fuel, etc

Up to you guys?

Yes Gary - people will naturally want to get the better ET\'s, this is simply covered by the type of tyre run on the car - make this clear in the table (Tyre Type).

In Oz, it is kind of going back the other way now - people are trying to see what times they can achieve on the narrower tyre (still slicks though).  Thread here makes for good reading: http://ausrotary.dntinternet.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=46604

It depends on the aim, do we want to stay street legal which puts a natural cap on the amount of money / development a person can do and hence keep the field competetive?  Or is it a do what ever you can get away with?

I\'m confused about the road legality of slicks.  There are such things as road legal slicks right?  Hoosiers and the like?

Its all a bit up in the air about tyres and rallying at the moment but its starting to look like its E marked tyres only for the road unless you are actually competing on a road section of an event at that specific time.

Someone has recently been booked for 4 ilegal tyres on the way to a sprint as they had for competition use only on sidewall even though they had perfectly legal tread depth and pattern (unlike M/T street ET\'s and the like) So the question of road legal really is a very large grey area !

I think the idea of putting a "natural cap" on the rules is important. Otherwise we may as well just have the one table in 1/4 section with all the times - as there is right now.

I think the purpose of this second table should be mainly for the average joe\'s of us who don\'t have an RX7 simply for drag/track racing.

lets face it - none of us daily drivers in our stock\'ish cars are going to get anywhere close to Geoffs 1/4 time (no offence meant to the guys running twins that are actually high up in that table). But if we have a seperate table with rules the exclude the big monsters then we have a better ground to compete on, and therefore with try harder to achieve better times.

My two pence worth...
