CHEATING IN FOOTBRAKE
« on: August 03, 2011, 05:51:26 PM »
As long as there has been Dragracing there has been cheating . Seems there has been a lot of talk latly about cheating going on in footbrake .sence there is no protesting any more how do u think the tracks should handle the complants.My opion is if u hav a complant both cars should be checked out.Because if ur not cheating u shuoldnt hav any thing to hide .Now that being said lets here what everbody else has to say about it .Lets here some cheating stories at ur local track .
some days i just want to be the missing person

What ever rules a strip has its up to the strip to enforce them. Rules can't be enforced unless the strips check the cars before they race.

Well I know a kid who has only red lit maybe 6 tmes in the last 5-6 years and I promise you he has no box in his car. Being we can not afford one much less two! I have seen a car I think has a transbrake and uses his cruise switch for his transbrake button.

 The more I think about it , I think the footbrake class is where it would easier to cheat ! I mean super pro , there isnt much that isnt legal.

  But footbrake is just wide open, the possibilities are endless.

Well  we bought a car one time that had the delay box hooked to a air cylinder on the throttle linkage the car stayed at idle until you released the transbrake and daddy took it off said cheaters never win , but  it was a good idea for the 80s era
Doing it all for Gods Glory!!!

I don't understand how you can cheat in footbrake either! Ya'll keep coming with the stories.
I have a pro brake tranny in my altered. I have to have the transbrake button to back up. I do have a free entry for footbrake...being a dummy at all this....what will I do to run footbrake. And you can pretty much tell when I leave off of the button. It's pretty dang obvious as I usually hit myself in the head when I let go of the button. Plus my car is open for everybody to see! And I may just get to feeling froggy when it cools down and want to run both classes!
LIFE DON'T GET NO BETTER THAN THIS!

I've heard stories of people putting buttons down by their feet. Not sure if there's truth to it or not, but that's a story I've heard a few times.

they used to watch me and crass alot at dyersburg. LOl. I never have had a brake, kind of want one, but i would want to play with it on the street too much. They used to stand right by the car and be lookin in when we were at the line. I used to act like I was doin stuff, just to make em think harder.
