I love seeing the new cars competing in NHRA Stock Eliminator. But as a former A/SA driver, I think its toally wrong the way NHRA if f***ing over the long time competitors that helped build the class over the last few decades. They could easily allow the new cars to compete without screwing the drivers of old classic muscle cars. It all about greed among the NHRA executives.

Wheels waaaayyyy up!

Beating a national record by that much is going to cause problems somewhere.

looks fun, but that is WAY too much lift, the car is going to break if you keep landing it that hard... See vids on COPO8, that car leaves like it's supposed to.

These COPO cars will not seize to amaze us for a very long time. Congrats guys!! It'll be fun seeing them line up against the V10 Drag Pack and Cobra Jets in their respective classes. As the supplier of the headers for all these hot rods, we can't be prouder. Keep up the great work!
