Plus trying to maintain a car faster than the 10 second field almost requires a sponsor unless you have deep pockets. Not to mention it takes the fun out of racing, safety is always a good concern but when you make that first pass and they tech you out because of screw in stems, roll cages, cut off switches, sfi gear, harness dates, and everything it takes to be that fast, the thrill is gone unless your competing professionally. Trust me you dont wish to be that fast, but to actually obtain a license you must be with an already licensed NHRA driver with his 9.99 sec car, you make 2 passes in it at a sanctioned track, he can certify you and recieve your license. This is why you always hear about that 10 second car, in movies or where ever, its the magic number. Id say keep it 10.50 or slower on a 1/4 mile track and enjoy it.
