Oh, I get you. I'm familiar with Evan's racing. I remember seeing him at Maple Grove in the 90's when he wasn't under the index yet. He knows exactly what I mean when I say, "Just look at NHRA's Stock Eliminator". I'm not knocking whatever is going on, if anything, to the sealed motors, it's just that NHRA Stockers are anything but stock (and some of the stuff they do is legal by the book, some is just accepted, and some is undetected), and I've read several times on the web (yeah, I know), that sealed motors are anything but, and I would expect that, being that racers aren't going to leave anything alone.Evan Smith is a former NHRA Stock Eliminator Champion who happened to drive a Mustang with a stick. To sum that up, he won the Stock Eliminator final round at Pomona. I forget what year. He also is the current Tech Editor for the NHRA National Dragster. I figure he probably appreciates what the Coyote Stock class is doing for the sport having done it himself in a different venue.
You need to read the rules for this class...I've heard that "sealed" engines are anything but. There are supposedly builders that can work around that. It wouldn't surprise me at all, the more rules a class has, the more people find a way to get around them. Just look at NHRA's Stock Eliminator.
Anyone care to expound?
Thank you for the link, Ed. It seems the NMRA has the sealed motor thing under control, for sure. I hope my misconception about their rule enforcement isn't common amongst others.
