    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    I live about 45 mins away from Milwaukee and GLD. Hoping my car will be ready by then, but I'll be going either way.

    some class ideas to talkabout.

    Right now we are thinking of keeping the current classes. I would be open to hearing some input from everyone on this. I would also like to see some turbo classes..ie single, twin, or compound set up's So what does everyone think?? please jump in here and lets talk.....Rich

    I would just leave it as is. The power adder shouldn't matter. Current classes line you up against comparable cars

    I think the current indexes keep each class pretty competitive BUT we have not had enough cars in the last 3 or 4 years to really fill the classes.

    I don't know what the answer is other than having 50 cars show up to race but if we only have 20 cars racing I think the format needs some new life.

    Well, the obvious option is to make it all one large bracket, maybe double elim so everyone is guaranteed to get a couple of races in. I think that if instead of racing each other all the time Brian or David had to race a 13 second car it would certainly make things a little more interesting. And I think the 13 second car would feel like much more a part of the racing experience if they had to race them, or any other car for that matter that was a full second or two faster than they are.

    I think this would certainly raise the interest level for racers and spectators alike. I mean can you imagine the groups reaction watching to see if David can catch the slower 14 second car in the semi-finals?!!

    Try this out for a second.. everyone makes a few time runs. then we all line up with your time on the window. you get set out the difference from the other car. now it is you against yourself to see if you can match your time that you picked.. if you break out[go too fast] you lose. We could do a double elimination so that everyone gets a lot of racing in as well. This gives everyone a chance to run with the big dogs as well as being part of the show.
    This might be a good idea as it gives everyone a chance no matter what you have done to your car..

    additional ideas

    1) We could just do some straight up grudge racing similar to how the Street Outlaws no prep series is run. With the exception that no one actually gets eliminated!
    Win or lose, just shake hands and come back the next round and draw numbers again. If you happen to draw the same person, just switch with someone else. No need for trophies really unless a more formal style of racing is implemented.

    2) As Ira mentioned, everyone do a few time trials and then have one big bracket style race. Perhaps have a tolerance in the dial-ins if that is possible. I would hate to see someone hit the brakes or slow down just to win a race when a new personal best could have been achieved. I know this could perhaps allow sand bagging, but you can sand bag with exact dial in as well.

    Just some thoughts.
