Wayne, can you please verify whether these can be used or not? All I have seen in searches for this is hearsay, ie. so and so says Wayne says we can't, etc.

I see nothing in the rules that says the vehicle has to be street legal or registered in order to compete, therefore I see no reason why they couldn't be used in the US. Just looking for an OFFICIAL ruling from Wayne.

It is nowhere written in the rules that a dB-drag competition car has to be registered and/or street legal.
The last year of my street a competition, my Panda was not registered, because it had to much rust to pass technical inspection.

I was going to buy a Marbella for my ssnw set car & was told I would be asked for registration & insurance @ finals becuase the vehicle is not drivable in the USA. This is another reason I think drag is falling fast. There should be either a ban on these vehicles or let us use them.

We were in the same boat. Had a chance to acquire 2 different bellas this year and couldnt get a straight answer about this. My feel is that if everyone isnt allowed to use this vehicle then nobody should be allowed to use it. If anyone is allowed to run the car then I dont consider it an advantage because anyone can use it and be competitive. However, if the U.S. competitors are not allowed to use them because of a completely stupid rule about registration and insurance then I feel no one should be allowed to use them..... on a side note I dont think that the extreme class vehicles are registered and insured? So im thinking that you dont have reg/insurance for cars but we couldnt get a straight answer so we passed on 2 of them and we are going to continue on our quest to get a 165+ in ssnw out of our 03 explorer

are you kidding me? pay the 5 grand plus the cost of the vehicle and you can get a rex from the U.S. shipped to you and you will be able to use it. Wbe have bellas here in the US but if wayne requires them to be registered it is impossible to use them here. Its not an issue to get one t0 use its a problem because it is impossible to register them here. Im sure you can buy a rex for a grand and pay the shipping and duties and you would be able to use the rex with no back seat. thats a completely different situation

When I ran Extreme, you had to show proof of ownership and insurance. You can insure a car without it being registered.

If you want to use a CRX without a backseat, then import one from N.America, just like we would have to import a Panda from over there.

Either way, this is a question for Wayne, not a competitor who can't understand the difference between a N. American CRX and a European/JDM CRX.

To my knowledge in europe, (at least in Belgium) it is imposible to insure a car when it hasn't passed technical inspection. And that last thing is impossible with 95% of the SS and Ex cars.

I think I have the perfect solution for the bellas, panda's, * rex's. Make a micro car class & get rid of street stock. Then street class would take in the street stock cars. Although it is all Waynes call & he needs to make a good one quick, becuase the db drag organization is sinking quick like the TITANIC..........

Can't you register a car in the states for offroad use or something like that. I imagine race cars are probably registered, and also insured, but they are not allowed on the roads.

The only reason you register a vehicle is to drive it on the road. You dont need insurance or registration to drive on private property (off road) However you can put

Not many of us (spl competitors) out there, so the less "bureaucracy" the better. Maybe spl vehicles weighting more than their GVWR should be covered by some sort of insurance...

G'day this is not a bad idea but I think you would be alianating a lot of the newbies and walk up competitors that have gone to their local chain store and bought a sub and amp for a few hundred dollars.

They are the sort of people who turn into hard core SPLers so we should do everything possible to get them to events and street stock is a great way of doing that.

I have a family size sedan with a 1kw amp and it was my introduction to dB Drags, I have started getting into SPL comps this year and partly due to the fact I have been competative in my stree stock A class I am now in the middle of building a SS 3-4.

just my thoughts
Dean.
