Yes, anybody that shows up can pull. As just as a heads up, the rules will be changing for the 3 diesel classes. We are just waiting for some small details to get ironed out and then Terry Thain and I will put everything together and pass it along to everybody. I would assume we will most likely be adopting DHRA rules with a couple changes that fit our club better. We will keep everybody updated...

I just registered on that site but it won't let me post yet. I will let everybody know the details as soon as possible. As far as the "additional safety stuff" goes, the rules they pulled out of the modified general rules does not apply to the "Mod diesel" class. It applies only to our "Super Modified diesel" class, as well as the modified alcohol/race fuel trucks, which are the full blown pulling trucks running Cepek tires. Currently, the only 2 trucks in that super modified class are running 8V92 Detroit engines. The "Modified diesel" class only has to run by the rules that are stated under the modified diesel heading. And yes, all diesel classes, from stock to super modified, have an 8,000lb weight limit. Hope this clears up the misunderstanding.

Awesome. Does twin turbos automatically put us in the Super mod class? Honestly, the bitch here is the fact that a daily driven trailer tower with twins that dyno's less than 500 hp usually falls into the super mod class were you require such things as a full fire suite, fuel shutoff, helmet, etc. Helmet we can do but the rest of it is kinda rediculous IMHO. When you get the ability, post this info on the NWD please.

No, twin turbos only puts you in the "Modified class" below. You have to have a helmet, fire extinguisher, and an air shutoff, both inside the cab and on the rear of the vehicle, as of this year. I should have the new rulebook updated by next week.

Sure you will...Just go find some aluminum and bolt them on. They are really simple to do. I'm sure that Terry or Shane would be happy to give you some ideas since they have already done them.

Doesn't look like I'll be pulling either, with my 3.0 inducer I have to pull with the big boys :oops: And we all know a Ford will never hang with them compounded Cummins trucks :-(

Well, I don't have the driveshaft loops either. Plus my street tread drag strip tires might not do so well on the dirt tracks.

I'm sure I'll give in and try it out though

Yeah same deal with me on the U Joint shields. I doubt I will have time to build anything given the crap ton of other projects I have already planned.
