Thread: Why no turbos?

  1. #1

    Why no turbos?

    Other than Vortech sponsoring the class, why exactly arent there any turbos allowed at all in XS?

    Its not super hard to control how fast they are, limit inducer size add weight until they slow down enough, or start small and add until they are fast enough. Dont understand not wanting another third pool of cars to show up. Always wondered why the NMCA was like that, especially with everyone talking about the economy and not making full fields of all the races. Seems like there would be good crossover from the 275 classes and other sanctioning bodies stuff.

    I think the crossover from 275 is supposed to go to the 275 nmca class, Street Radial

    ??? ummm.. crossing over from an average 275 class to the nmca 275 class would be about as easy as making an outlaw 10.5 car fit into nmca prostock rules..

    X100, agreed, Turbos in XS would make a lot of sense, I know the class is already strong, but done right it would add a nice extra group of NMRA DR and 275 type cars.

    Yeah, but 275 radial cars go high 7s low 8s like XS. the 275 Street Radial class has so much stuff slowing the combo down its not a crossover by any means
