^yep. One down... one to go



Canopy: 1986, reinvented in 2012
Mono Wing: 1991, reinvented in 20??
I wish they would bring back the dragster "nose"

And as soon as anyone finds pics of the tube, please post here. It is supposed to be an innovative design. I'm sure they believe its safer, I just wonder if they are going old school JFR by keeping the cat in the bag for as long as they can.

I agree. The car's technical aspects would make a great interview for us geeks.
Plus, this is not an everyday occurrence of making TF pipe in house nowadays

Since they dont take all the panels off in the pits, it may be some time before we get to see all of it

Ah yes, the car NHRA disallowed. Had they allowed this one, it could have potentially changed the class as we knew it then.

I got a feeling JFR is stuck using the canopy DSR developed since its all that NHRA approved, but eventually if this design is more consistent they might borrow that from JFR.

Why was it disallowed?

Maybe the guy that developed the canopy for DSR now works for Force. Crew chief and driver changes get announced, but behind the scene members seem to fall through the cracks.
