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.
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?
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.
