I’m building a rear engine dragster for Super Comp and one of my crew members said that he thought my brake line needed to be run inside of tubing where it passes the engine. Is this correct? I will be using steel braided brake line.

Brake Line Bobby,
No, your crew member is not correct. In the 2012 NHRA Rulebook, General Regulations, page 15, 3:1 Brakes it states “All brake lines on any rear-engine car must be protected inside tubing or be braided steel construction where they pass the engine.”
