Are ET Streets considered Slicks?

Just like the subject...For NHRA rules are ET Streets considered slicks? I am almost ready to take my car to the track but need to know if I have to get all the extra stuff you need if you are running slicks. I will get it eventually but I am poor and on a budget.

There are DOT rated but some tracks will treat them as slicks. It is best to contact your track. IMO any safty measures you use for slicks would be wise with them as well.

d/s loop

If you've got the cash to get through the gates at the strip you have enough money to buy a d/s loop. It's an inexpensive safety measure.

Driveshaft loop, extended lugs and more importantly (because the other stuff is cheap and gonna be quick in coming) I thought I read that with slicks you needed a blow-proof bellhousing...I could be wrong about that, maybe I should just buy the rule book. I don't plan on the housing until I figure out what trans I am gonna run for sure.

On a side note....Why doesn't NHRA make the rule book available in its entirety online?

i would just buy the safety stuff anyways. i wouldn't want a clutch coming through the floor boards.

the only thing i haven't picked up yet is the d/s loop and that is on the list for this coming year.

Scattershield is when you are 11.49 and under, the extended wheel studs are necessary for a wheel like a weld that requires a non-stock style shanked lug nut-and even then the rule is that it has to thread the diameter of the stud into the hex portion of the lug. This isn't a problem if you are running a set of slicks or ET streets on a stock style rim.
