And on a side note, can anyone tell me what the requirements are for ET's and safety equipment? It's been awhile since I've been to the dragstrip and I remember at certain ET's you'd need driveshaft loops, roll bars, etc..

This is right on. I am worried about the 60' as that is what killed me running my Viper. if I aired down and had the right tire, that is a solid .5 off the time, most of it on the 60' mark as I was pulling a crappy launch and had to come up at a low RPM and feather the throttle a hair with my Nitto 555R's and a 60' that should have been a 1.5 and instead was a 1.8 and had me launching before my power band and losing a lot of ET. That said, a low ET is good, but how you run on the street to me is more important.

Either way, have fun, be safe and drive home. Post up good, bad or whatever, learn from the experience but no matter what just have fun and post up some video.

11.49 and quicker requires a roll bar. They will usually give you a warning before booting you out.

Good luck! How far are you going? If I did it again I'd bring a spare belt, more coolant, more oil, an entire socket/wrench set, and some spare radiator hoses. And earplugs.

Darn I didn't realize it was that soon. I wonder if they'll actually check. Can't I just get my slip and sneak away? lol

If the car is really over 500whp you shouldn't have trouble getting into the mid 11's. I haven't had the chance to get my car to the track yet but I ran back to back 12.6's with my SRT Ram with just bolt-ons (well under 500whp) and I hit the scale that day at 5,165lbs!

Sounds good in the video. I think you should be able to run Atleast a 11.5 in the quarter.
