x275 drag radial class

I went to Rockingham drg strip Saturday and saw the outlaw civil wars sat here in nc. I was already interested in the x275 class, but seeing them up close in personal blew my mind! Since Saturday all I can think about is building a monster to compete in this class! I know before u say it, it takes a lot of $$$$ to be competetive in heads up racing. I've been involved in grudge racing since I was 14 and I'm 30 now, so I know the price of competing is high. Just would like ur opinions on the class and if I should just stick to grudge racing? Thanks in advance

IMO, of you cant afford to be reasonably competitive in a particular class, it's best to go another route.

Ask yourself this question, what is the most I can put into a race car that will allow me to be competitive throughout the race season? If the answer is grudge racing then stick with it. Maybe you can step up to Another class.

There are other heads up classes that are a little easier on the pocket book than a all put 10.5" class.

Thanks for your opinion. I love the challenge of putting big power down with a 275 tire. Rite now we have a notch with a full tub a 408 and a lot of nitrous. We can run in the mid 5's in the 1/8th. Mabe grudge racing is where I'll stay. Not sure at the moment.

Big power and a small tire is an awesome feat. Sounds like you have a hot setup. Good luck.

You know, the guys have a good point in the staying competitive bit. It isn't much fun to race in a class that you know you won't do well in. but the outlaw classes are awesome, and sometimes a new challenge is nothing but fun, even if its a little shaky at first.
