Re: NHRA Mandated Collector Tethers? WTF?

I watched a collector come off at Atco. Bolts were in the tabs and tight. The weld on the tab failed. The collector got under the tire and launched into the spectators legs. Two hurt, one seriously.

Re: Congratulations

Thanks guys. My only regret is that I'm in Florida and didn't get to attend the banquet. But he sent lots of pictures. Also only the drivers who are members of the circuit (Mid-Atlantic Super Comp Association) are allowed to vote so it truely is an honor bestowed on him by his fellow drivers. I did ...

Re: set engine lower in ladder bar car need set up help
