Can you put slicks on a street car for a day at the track? Sure. Can you open up th exhaust for a day at the track? Sure. But the car can quickly be put back to street legal condition.

A purpose built race car is not legal to drive on the street. You can't quickly change the tires and drive it legally on the street.

True Street racing will be conducted at a number of NMCAwest drag racing events to be specified. NMCAwest True Street does not have a points system. NMCAwest True Street is not eligible for contingency.

Hood scoops permitted. Any rear wing permitted. OEM safety glass windows required & must be functional. Lexan prohibited.
POWER ADDERS & POWERTRAIN
All 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder, small block and big block engine types and multiple power adders are permitted. Any manual or automatic transmission is permitted. Any rear end is permitted. Exhaust system with mufflers are required.

Please let's not let a small vocal minority corrupt the Fast lists with nonsense like this. When you have to read for 20 minutes to figure out which category your car fits into then something is wrong. I don't know of a single car on the list that would be a race only car with maybe the exception being the Black Pig and the Farks car but even those I am not so sure.

KISS principle seems to apply here.

We have enough data logs now that they should be able to get it perfect. When we had it built before we told them we were going with an F2 but the F1-X makes less power so I think that's why it's too tight.
