Both big an small H.July 26, 2012 at 10:08 am #11103
Why would you do this do this class its called modstreet for a reason, and what is anyone going to achieve with a alloy block when its std cam height ,std deck and bore spacing its been proven time and time again with numerous sprintcar teams that alloy blocks are on average down 40 -60 hp over a cast block what are we doing to a class that we already cant get enough entries in, this is pathetic,i would really like to know who is it that this would benefit!

Don’t want to upset anyone,
But what is the point of allowing alluminium blocks in the class when the cars have to weigh 2800lbs.
and will cost you a heap of HP.
Why not allow them in pro street which is a class that allows more modifications and higher end racing.
By allowing alluminium blocks who are we catering for to enter the class that can’t enter with an iron block?
I hope the alluminium blocks are still restricted to standard cam height and no spread rail sumps.

The reason for this is so racers pushing can repair blocks, manage heat and as you have explained there is no power advantage rather the opposite…
With the minimum weights in, it won’t make a differance….
Sorry Ali it was discussed and 7 experienced committee members plus delegates all agreed to let it go to vote…
Yes Tony Standard Cam height onlyJuly 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm #11113
I thought we were to vote on raised cam small blocks only? When did this go for big block too? And where did the raised cam bit go ❓July 26, 2012 at 12:31 pm #11114
It does’nt go for big Blocks….Both are still standard cam heights only.July 26, 2012 at 8:51 pm #11121
Iam with the rest….did not see this coming……….. keep the alloy blocks for pro streetJuly 26, 2012 at 10:16 pm #11124
Guys this has come because of a few things the main one is because of the min weight coming in it makes no difference to any of the other races if you want to run an aluminum block like you say they make less HP but they are def easier to maintain and cool off in between rounds I’m not sure how many of you race but towards the end of the night at our shoot outs you only get about 30 mons to turn a car around which let me tell you it’s tough to get the job done, also it might help some of the aspirated guys be ale to get down to min weight instead of having a whole bunch of capris at the pointy end.
These days there is not much difference in price between a decent iron block an a cast aluminum but when things go wrong at least you can repair the aluminum.
We have to move with the times boys and girls.July 26, 2012 at 11:46 pm #11132
Well the only car that i can see that cant make the weight is andrews hq there are bigblock lh toranas that are 2750 lbs but its all about the capris well we will just keep stepping up then what will b voted next ban capris!!!!its a jokeJuly 27, 2012 at 12:03 am #11134
