    What is the fastest run by a Hemi car in NHRA competition? Add 7 tenths to that and make that the index

    8.210 fastest SS/AH ever run. Not too many SS/AH cars have even been close. I think Bucky ran 8.28 at the divisional in Virginia. 8.30 would be a good base, ie 9.00 index using your logic Brian.

    9.00 would still be only .45 under at Indy though w/o some rule liberalization. And lets not forget the Sunoco fuel in the mix

    Best of luck, Bucky.. it would be nice to have a "fair" index for that class... BUT, did Gator bring that monkey piss, known as Sunoco Race Fuel, into the conversation.. I wonder if Bucky could shed some testing insight one that issue.. like a run where only the fuel is changed, not tune up changes.. BE CAREFUL NOW...

    I think a logical approach to the index for the AH cars in Super Mod. would be:
    Make an excel file with the following columns.

    Column A = each super modified class index.
    Column B = each national record for each class.
    Column C = Column A - Column B.

    Compute the average of column C.

    Take this value and add it to the current SS/AH national record.

    This a simple and sensible method to compute the index.

    Thanks, Ron

    I just did this using actual record runs listed and not the minimum required. The average of all /SM records is -.728, average of all /SMA is -.658, and average of all SM/SMA records combined is -.696. If you take the average of all SM/SMA that are over -.61 its -.751. (F/SM, F/SMA, and H/SMA are only -.60, -.51, and -.54).

    Now do you use the 8.21 record or the current listed record of 8.48 as your baseline.
