can't figure out exactly what's going to happen with this class......what happens to FS? what happens to PS? what if it doesn't work? can it slip into SS or comp?
what if class is hugely popular, and factory support dollars are weened from nitro classes? what if factory support is huge, and other players come in; then it's all about brands
and selling cars again. why not contact netflix and really blow it up bigtime. the drivers would suddenly be more popular than john force.
IMO the 10.5 tire is a good starting point. wonder if exhaust will be under car headers? or some may port out side just behind front fender?
exhaust rules only point to general rules 1:3, regulations for exhaust.

i just hope the NHRA keeps an open mind this time and include some of the opinions and thoughts of the people who's gonna invest in this class. Based on interviews and articles, the most recent rules in Pro Stock (wheelie bars, decals, EFI etc.) did not involve any opinion by the current competitors and all it achieved, was millions of dollars spent by said competitors and was a complete bust!
The NHRA’s technical department plans to maintain parity in the forthcoming Factory Experimental division, also known as Factory X, through adjustments to the respective engine combinations of the Chevrolet, Chrysler, and Ford competitors. All three car combinations to run in Factory X will...
While NHRA has remained mum on the subject of the Factory Experimental format becoming the next incarnation of its Pro Stock division, some of the drivers in the Camping World Drag Racing Series are starting to throw their hat in the ring. The word has made its way to us that Rodger Brogdon, who...
When NHRA's Factory Experimental concept hit the drag racing community, it did so with rave reviews and great anticipation. However, a little over a month later, the iconic Factory Experimental designation no longer exists. NHRA has given the extension of Factory Stock Showdown and possibly the...
