Default Final rules

The emphasis behind this class is to have the closest look as possible to the theme of street driven/drivable vehicles pounding the quarter mile to an 8 second run on eco friendly E85. Rules are purposley loose, but the theme is still there and is the primary unwritten rule. This class is about the show put on for the fans, so large burnouts are strongly promoted and encouraged, along with huge nitrous purges, and wheelstands of stratospheric proportions.
