    I would not attend the NHRA drag races if the Funny cars and Top fuel dragsters were eliminated by stupid regulations.
    I spend allot of $ to attend these races every year. If things don't change soon I'm out.
    No offense to the other classes but to be honest If drag racing didn't have nitro they would be done.

    Phil, I hope there's some effort being made within the F1 class (Sport, too) to find venues in addition to Reno. I'm reminded of a cliche about "(not) having all your eggs in one basket..."

    This debacle is a rather strong example of why not.

    I'm certainly looking forward to a good F1 race between Endeavour, Sept. Fate and your DG-1.

    Agreed. No big guns, I'm taking my money to maybe Austin for F1.

    Chris...
    As the sole representative of the only people to own and race P-40's at Reno (grand total of two), I think this is an incredible idea! We did manage to win a heat race in 2009 in "Parrothead" so I'm pretty sure with a few little tiny mods, a few tweaks, some secret buttons in the cockpit and one or two other "race secrets" the newly proposed P-40 Class should be able to reach speeds in excess of 900mph on the current course by my calculations. I've spoken with Stevo about this and I'm pretty sure that this is what has led to all of the drama.

    Rest assured, it won't be Parade laps though, in the new P-40 Class it is required that we install and use (for no less than 3 laps) an afterburner. (seriously top-secret technology)

    This is gonna be great!

    P.S. We will also be required to fly the entire race inverted.

    If only we had spoke a few days ago before I started fabricating the Air Bag system ( Thank you Deimert ) in the cockpit in conjunction with the Afterburner set up!

    PM is looking very pretty though, that's for sure.

    Now THAT'S funny right there.

    I can't remember where (maybe on WIX) but someone had visited his place and Chris's 'chase car' was still around....good to know when you're ready to flight-test.
