Thats all I am saying, there was no rubber stamp approval because there is no answer about what will happen for the safety safari. Fighter jets, sure, drag boats, of course, theres water spraying everywhere.

Is there some kind of a news blackout concerning the DSR Canopy ? I can't believe NHRA has not made a decision yet. What is the story....???

Well obviously the DSR cars don't need the aerodynamics for speed

Actually, aerodynamics is not just about speed, it's about using and directing airflow such as increasing airflow to the scoop.

In other words DSR does not need the canopy in order to run record speeds. They've proven they are the fastest without it. Now, what about that safety aspect?

Which makes perfect sense, but I'll be dipped if I see the need to increase air flow to Massey's injector hat. I bet the CFM going into that thing at 330MPH is off the charts.
