Racer's

NASCAR and NHRA both made changes when they had Safety concerns with speeds being to fast for the the Drivers, Sleds do not have much control when spinning down the 1/4 mile trying to hook up, most guys will tell you speeds in excess of 150MPH it can be a handfull at the big end of the track, along with the shutdown. Changing to 1/8 would make it alot safer for the Drivers, most of your Problems seem to happen after the 1/8 mile mark. Lets do something to make Asphalt racing Safe.

Yep! Been goin there for a few years now! They are still running the 1/4! The speeds of the sleds really wouldn't change much going to 1000 or an 18th! I hope to bring out the Big Cat with the slick on it!
