Tuesday Tech Question


I have a 1995 Mustang GT that I think will run in the mid 12 second range.  If I run DOT street tires will I need a drive shaft loop?

5.0 Fred,

In the 2012 NHRA Rulebook on page 3 of E. T. section 4A, DRIVELINE it states “Driveshaft loop required on all cars running 13.99 (*8.59) or quicker and utilizing slicks, except vehicles running 11.49 (*7.35) seconds or slower equipped with street tires.”
