    Rule books says 3 in min to 12 in behind front wheels ( I think) then 2 in from there back. So I would go about 3.5 to 4 in just to make sure.

    check with your local tech people. NHRA rulebook shows headers and oil pan as the exception to the 3" ground clearance rule where permitted

    ground clearance

    You don't want them so close to the track that they become outriggers, 3-3.5 inches would be normal

    thanks,,

    I had to custom make some zoomies but there are too close to the ground.
    rules are 3'' clearance ,except the headers and oilpan.
    But i find them too close to the ground.
    Maybe there was a reason for them being so close but i will let them remake to 3,5 ''
