OK I have waited a long time to get my 2 cents in on this subject. i think that the views of both sides are very good. that being said why cant we either work to change the rules to level the playing field or seperate the two beasts entirely? the closest thing in any of the faster classes (6 sec or better) that comes close is pro mod and the two allowed combos are fairly comparable at the current rules. i think blown cars are way cool and a-fuel is a way cool way to get around but 2-3 tenths is quite a difference. now the a fuelers say that the blower guys need to just figure out there combos to get faster but when they do they pop the blower and thousands of dollars go down the drain in a class that is so expensive its real hard to understand how they call it a "sportsman" class. i run an injected alky dragster and its a blast but i live in the mountains and when i do get the bucks together to run in tad it only makes sence for me to put a blower on my car so i can make the power up here and untill i find that water fall of money it would take me to run all over the country it would be nice to be at least come close to being competetive at the big races. now i hope that no one feels the need to pick this apart too much cause if i lived at lower altitudes i would put together an a-fuel car in a heatrbeat cause nitro is the stuff that gets my deal going. so why cant we level this out a little bit to keep it a sportsman class so we all can save a little more money to step up to top fool a little sooner?
