    I understand my friends in Oklahoma are converting their F/EA Altered to a Front Motor Dragster. Won't you need to reclassify from a 10.3 (Altered) spec to a 2.6A (Front Motor Dragster) spec? I may want to convert to B/ND if this is possible. Will all the bars required meet both spec's?

    Garth Hill did it years ago, made wheelbase longer than 125 inches and took body off

    126 inches or longer its a dragster , 125 or less its a altered. I like the idea, it gives people a little more room to race. B/DA would be a great play

    We did not change the wheelbase,we left it at 125. we took the body and grill shell off.We had Mike Bowen race cars build us a body to dragster specs and run E/ED.

    The way I understand it, FED can't run rear suspention and limited to 125" WB.
    Dean Carter just called me about changing his Batum body to dragster body and put his A/ND SBC in it to race JrFuel in the Heritage Hot Rod Reunion in Oct.
