The rumor is that PDRA is going to have an "Open Outlaw" 8 car heads up field at 5 races next year. I know there is a group of cars down in the southeast that run a few races based on an open set of rules, just no screw. I don't see why they don't let the screw in at a reduced overdrive. If this class takes off, it's going to take a 'guru' roots blower to run at the top of the pack. By guru I mean paying $20-$30k + to a blower guy to have a heavily modified trick of the week blower built to the rules. Aussie TAD's are a good example. 88 over on the PSI D rotor, they run mid to low 5.50's. That would be right on par with the 3.60s the top roots Open Outlaw cars are running. You might be able to pull some NHRA TAD cars over to run your class. The little guys will have a hell of a lot better of a chance staying competitive with a screw as an option. If this deal grows to a full touring class the 'price of poker' will go up pretty quick with a roots only deal. A throw-down guru blower goes for $30k+. If you put a custom paint job on the case of your PSI you couldn't spend that much. Not to mention the cost of ownership is lower. The Open Outlaw deal in Bradenton and a few other local venues isn't a bad deal. If this is going to become a national deal, they should consider more of a big picture frame of mind. Thoughts?
