Tuesday Tech Question

Question:

 

I was thinking about installing a removable steering wheel adapter on my Pro ET 1984 Chevette.  What NHRA rules would I need to follow? 

 

 

Steering Wheel Scott

 

 

Answer:

 

Steering Wheel Scott,

 

NHRA Classes 7.50 and quicker in the ¼-mile require steering wheel hub to be certified as SFI 42.1.  For your Pro ET car in the 2012 NHRA Rulebook on page 15, 3:3 Steering in the General Regulations section it states “Commercially available quick-disconnect steering wheels permitted (except as noted in class requirements).  Adapter must be welded to shaft.  All fasteners must be of a positive nature; no roll or pressed pins, no ball-lock pins, set screws, etc.”
