Yeah i agree Psycho. So the classification is Street/ ProStreet affixed to the respective displacement class.

Although I couldnt care less because we will be running in Indian open. NOS, nitro, Hydrogen Peroxide, wrung watcha brung. The strip will decide.

see if this classification does happen even ur benefitted wolfie ..now u know why a few of us are stressing upon a few changes,so that lots of people like you and me can get out on the strip without any complex..wonder how many more are waiting for such an oppurtunity like this..its for the benefit of all not only ME..concrete decision ?? what do u think i was trying to break my head here for..wasnt i telling the same since post 1..

hehe..its an awesome thread alright and a very scandulous one at that across all indian forums..who better to know that than psycho,cinclaturbo & myself..

now lets just pray this falls into the hands of the right people responsible for motorsports in india..and a silent prayer is all we can do until then..

PS : let me just bring it to the kind notice of all specially a few guys like cinclaturbo,lancer mania and others..
I CAN AFFORD one of the best NOS KITS available in the world (with time u all will see that)..its not the affordability issue thats the prime concern here for me alone(its for a million others who cant), but the problem is of having a fair level of competition thats it..

Now that we have agreeded upon street/prostreet.Some more doubts.
1.Does the existing multi factor for turbo cars remain.
2.If yes should'nt it be removed.
3.Street class cars without nos should not be allowed in the prostreet class right ??

Hmmm, good points, cinclaturbo...

1 and 2. I guess if you are running FI cars in prostreet classes, all you should take care of is physical displacement. No multiplication factor, since NOS is also allowed. Besided, this multi-factor is a bit of a joke, isn't it? I mean, a turbo at 8psi will not be as powerful as one at 20psi, all else being equal.

3. Another thinker. Allow NA cars in prostreet? The major issue would be time constraints. But hey, if an NA Esteem guy thinks he can take on a blown Esteem or NOSed Vtec, his problem, right?

The multiplication factor should be removed and the categories should effectively remain based on CC. And yes the right way to go is that a Street Car cannot run in Pro Street and vice versa, else there will be loads of issues to sort out by the stewards. (That is my personal opinion) please voice out your opinions on this.

well in prostreet like we mentioned earlier all cars running NOS,turbochargers,superchargers line up based on the CC and NO MULTI'S to be considered here..

well as i pointed out in a previous post multi's are pointless as they do no justice..u can run varying boost and yet be in the same category...which aint fair again..

well i think the prostreet cars can be allowed to run in the street class provided u take out the NOS bottle off( if they want to see what they could do without NOS)..but street cars running without NOS in the prostreet class is a big NO NO..

PS: coming to the issue of which we ought to have an entry fee to prevent unruly crowd behaviour..

I think this would cause more headaches for the scrutineers. With the sheer volume of entrants it means that drag events need to be spread out over a weekend (like they do in the NHRA events) rather than finished in a single day.

Why not? Atleast in the open classes....It should be left to the participants to decide if they are foolhardy or PSYCHOtic enough to run a NA car in forced aspiration class....what say Mr Keshav?

We have so many right-thinking people here who know what needs to be done to better the sport. I propose that we float the IDRA - Indian Drag Racing Association.

Having street/prostreet classification in the indian open is pointless.As the name suggests its open.Im my opinion this class should remain as it is now.

If we had more people who run their na cars with forced induction cars , this topic itself would'nt have started... .

well i agree with CT..whats the point of running the street cars in the prostreet category again,as it is he would rather clock almost the same time(unless and until he suddenly discoveres a new invention within those few hours to make the car go way faster)..yes let the open class remain open as it is now..its best suits..

bang on CT..the very purpose of this topic..fair play for all and for those who want to take on their NA cars up against the FI's they can in the open category..

and ananth i know whats brewing under that hood of urs with 4 wheels ..best of luck..
