Tuesday Tech Question

 Question:

 

I was thinking about running my Super Pro Pontiac GTO in the NHRA Super Street class.  I heard somewhere that I would need to put a diaper on the car, is this correct?

 

Oil Pan Pete

 

 

Answer:

 

Oil Pan Pete,

 

You heard correctly.  In the 2012 NHRA Rulebook, Section 7 Super Street, page 2, Oil-Retention Device it states “All vehicles must utilize an NHRA-accepted lower oil-containment device; may use a belly pan in lieu of a device attached to the engine.  If belly pan is used, must extend from framerail to framerail and extend forward of the harmonic balancer and rearward to rear-engine plate and must incorporate a minimum 2-inch-high lip on all sides.  A nonflammable, oil-absorbent liner mandatory inside of retention device.”
