Who in the hell builds a twin turbo promod...... And uses a cheap Canton wet sump street pan.... Then wonders why it wastes bearings???

In my opinion, the cars in Drag Week are the ultimate Street Cars.

It amazes me what some of those guys with 8 second and quicker can do with their machines.

As far as the cars on S.O., they are entertainment cars.
Now, if the S.O. guys ran their machines in Drag Week, ( and completed) then  that would be impressive as "street racers".

You should have seen the car that Mike Moran had at the Woodward Dream Cruise, "Roadkill Nights" legal street drag races last August on the totally un-prepped road; (since it IS a regularly driven street). Round robin drag racing with 3 runs back to back to back down the marked-off 1/8 mile.

A 3,800 pound 1969 Dodge Charger, (cruiser), full steel body car completely stock inside and out other than the power train and suspension. He took home the $10,000.00 winners share and spun the tires the entire run on all three ... all about controlling the rear wheel speed driving it off the line and using an educated right foot the whole time. (Pedaling it ... as they say).
It had Garret turbos, , a Big Stuff 3 "EFI system", a Turbo 400 trans and 3.54/1 rear gears with about 2,200 horsepower at the flywheel.

My guess is a Davis traction control box & boost/ignition controllers also played a decent part vs it being 100% educated right foot.

MAYBE ... but the tires never stopped spinning.
I was under the impression that traction control would stop the wheel spinning. scratch

Jeff Lutz did just that.

Not that I think running a promod chassis on the street is all that but Hot Rod thinks it is.
The most impressive car that I saw in 2015 was this http://www.bullseyepower.com/blog/?id=66#.WHJ5JVwpmJc in 2015. Its Windsor based and was flawless. It had a quicker average than the big block power adder class.

Drag Week has become a turbo event where heavy bias takes away all other power adders.

Or maybe we have it all wrong and Chief simply cannot pay the note on the car...? He did say on the show that if he ran the Crowmod and wrecked it he'd have to pay for it and he mentioned still being in some sort of debt on the Crow...

Who knows, maybe he is wising up and realizing that there is more to life than spending every penny on a car just to be on some ambiguous "list"...?

With the kinda power a lot of turbo cars have these days having them black-tracking X amount the whole way down track is probably preferable to 100% dead-hooking at some point mid track & having the pinion instantly start climbing the ring gear causing a mid track moon-shot powerstand.
