Looking at the crop of cars there's a good few fast looking motors there. I'm definitely running scared. I have a home built car which I may run if funds permit this year.

I have a few questions about the series and the rules for cars:

Having joined the Outlaws, what's the deal when arriving at the venues with scrutineering ? Do they have to pass RAC, SFI or track tech too ?
What about track fees eg, entry and signing on ???

The Outlaw rules seem pretty relaxed but my exhaust does not extend to the rear of the car -even though its street driven and passes the MoT with no problem. What constitutes a 'Full' exhaust ???

Cheers guys. Hope to see y'all at the track -even if I don't bring my own car.!!!!

firstly don't be running scared! and welcome to the series...as there are various achievements to be had and won....and as long as your car IS Street legal you will be fine, join in have fun and drive it like you hate it.
see below post.

Outlaw Street is an amateur drag racing series open to anyone who owns a street legal car & wants to enjoy some 1/4 mile racing with like minded people.

The series is open to 4 cylinder & up cars and is spread over 10 meets throughout the 2010 drag racing season, the meets consist of 8 (points eligible) weekends and 2 (non points eligible) one day events.

You don’t have to stay all weekend to be eligible for points and can just turn up for a day to race.

We race at both Santa Pod & Shakespheare County Raceway, with a combination of RWYB meets, Performance Test & Tune events & specialist weekends

The rules for the series are quite simple:

Your car MUST HAVE:
1. A current MOT
2. A current TAX disc
3. A full functioning exhaust system
4. Tyres with road legal tread depth

Your car CAN’T HAVE:
1. Open Headers
2. Slicks

The points system is built on a combination of 3 factors:
1. Quickest ET
2. Improvement Time from last event
3. Attendance

This means that you don’t have to run the fastest car to have a chance of winning a trophy across the season, points will be posted on the forum after each meet so you can track how you’re doing, who’s beating you and who you’ve beat.

There will also be a trophy at each meet for the driver with the fastest reaction time and at the end of the season there’ll be trophies for:

1st 'sponsored by Linards'
2nd 'sponsored by Linards'
3rd 'sponsored by Linards'

Fastest Reaction Time Across The Series 'sponsored by Rebel-V8'

Best Improved Driver

Hard Luck Award

Spirit of the ‘Outlaw’ 'sponsered by the NASC'

All members are eligable for the chance to win a £50 Voucher to be spent at WASP which will be drawn on the prize night at the end of the season.

Membership per season is £25, this gives you entry to the Outlaw Street forum, your own unique race numbers and an Outlaw Street window sticker

If you’d like to join or have any questions please email outlawstreet@hotmail.co.uk

i just wrote war and peace responding to this post and then my steam powered f,in computer lost it when i posted it,
the short version.welcome raindance654 a full exhaust is a length of pipe or pipes with muffler/mufflers fitted length and effectiveness is not important to the guys and girls on here,tyres can be as dubious as you want as long as the lines in them are production and not home made,no sfi required you will have to be checked over by the guys at shaky before you sign on,nothing to worry about,just basic.ie seatbelt secure and battery likewise,wheels have all fixings,nos bottles have blow downs if cab fitted,plastic fuel cells earthed at filler neck all over less than two minutes.if your vehicle reaches a 100mph at either track you will require a lid,fire suits,systems and all other safety gear at your discretion as effectively running run what you brung rules......hope this helps sir or mam....if however the 654 in your handle refers to the cubic capacity of your engine,you will make a pass....and then the powers that be at either venue will make themselves known to you :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi again.
Thanks for the welcome and answers.
The car was completely track ready and passed FIA / RAC / SFI inspections when it was last pulled out of the garage. Trouble is that it's been 6 years since it last ran so all the dates on the equipment have lapsed (like SFI harness dates, fire bottles and a million other things) even though they have only two meetings on them.
I don't run any sniff and never have.
Terminals are always over 100mph. Will this effect how the car is viewed by the powers that be -even if I have an RAC "logbook" for the car.....????

The car itself is totally street legal and will hopefully be returning to the roads of sunny Dorset this year if funds permit -I've had a 6 year financial crisis -never mind the last couple of years !!!!!

The "654" in my handle is my 1/4 mile ET.
Do you think I'll be competitive ?????

I have a couple of clips on YouTube which you might like to take a look at (which is where Kris found my details and got in touch):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yw58JNKP3UI&feature=channel

Hopefully this link will work but if not search "Raindance Cortina" and it should pop up a couple of my clips.
Note exhaust system and tax disc.
Toodle pip for now.

Terry.
