In the whole cockpit capsule design configuration he does. Not the shrouds.

Why? It was reported that he had that much into it. Then after post #125 nobody set the fact straight so I could do nithing else but figure all parties involved were still insinuating the lttle shroud was into Don's pocket for $100K.

Based on what made them make the decision, the decision they made, and on the way the NHRA made their decision. Why haven't they banned all rear engine dragsters yet? There has not been one built that has proven to keep fire out of the cockpit. Each one is built in the hopes that it is faster than all the others by having some kind of performance edge. Maybe they're waiting for Pomona...

Re: NHRA Tech says to DSR Top Fuelers "Take It Off"!

The $100,000 plus that DSR has spent is on the fully enclosed cockpit that we have worked on. Not this shroud. All of this work is being done to try and improve the safety for the driver.
