There are six minimum weight specs for Top Sportsman ranging from a 1, lb. This weight spread offers concern to Lester Johnson. My car weighs 2, pounds with me in it and not one single weight block on it.
All of those weight pucks used on cars are dangerous. Johnson cites that as a bracket racer at heart, his car was built intentionally heavy because he wanted it to be sturdy with a long useful life. Looking Forward So where do these classes go from here? The consensus was reasonably unanimous: faster, tighter, and overall tougher. Despite 6-second E. I always try to have a. That is with a. I may need to better that to stay competitive.

Drag racing is controlled by Motorsport South Africa and all drivers are required to hold a valid Motorsport South Africa license.
There are hundreds of classes in drag racing, each with different requirements and restrictions on things such as weight, engine size, body style, modifications, and many others. Some IHRA classes have multiple sub-classes in them to differentiate by engine components and other features.
There is even a class for aspiring youngsters, Junior Dragsterwhich typically uses an eighth-mile track, also favored by VW racers. There is Dragster Man somewhat arbitrary definition of what constitutes a "professional" class. Other sanctioning bodies have similarly different definitions. A partial list of classes includes:. To allow different cars to compete against each other, some competitions are raced on a handicap basis, with faster cars delayed on the starting line enough to theoretically even things up with the slower car.
This may be based on rule differences between the cars in stock, super stock, and modified classes, or on a competitor's chosen "dial-in" in bracket racing. For a list of drag racing world records in each class, see Dragstrip Quarter mile times. A 'dial-in' is a time the driver estimates it will take his or her car to cross the finish line, and is generally displayed on one or more windows so the starter can adjust the starting lights on the tree accordingly.
The slower car will then get a head start equal to the difference in the two dial-ins, so if both cars perform perfectly, they would cross the finish line dead even. If either car goes faster than its dial-in called breaking outit is disqualified regardless of who has the lower elapsed time; if both cars break out, the one who breaks out by the smallest amount wins.
However, if a driver had jump-started red light or crossed a boundary line, both violations override any break out except in some classes with an absolute break out rule such as Junior classes.
The effect of the bracket racing rules is to place a premium on consistency of performance of the driver and car rather than on raw speed, in that victory goes to the driver able to precisely predict elapsed time, whether it is fast or slow.
This in turn makes victory much less dependent on budget, and more dependent on skill, making it popular with casual weekend racers. The organization banned the use of nitromethane incalling it unsafe, in part through the efforts of C. Hart ; the ban would be lifted in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
