Tuesday Tech Question 11/29/11

Question:

 

I see from the recently posted 2012 NHRA Rule Amendments that Top Fuel and Funny Car are required to use an SFI 15.4 rear wheel next year. I have heard from a number of my racing friends that I may have to change to an SFI 15.3 rear wheel in 2012 for my Top Alcohol Funny Car. Is that true?

 

Top Alcohol Tommy

 

Answer:

 

Top Alcohol Tommy,

 

The NHRA Technical Department has received several inquiries about such a rule change and I can tell you that it is FALSE. Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars are still required to use a rear wheel meeting SFI 15.1.
