Do they (NADM,pullin power,etc.) actually check this in tech? I kow its in the rules just dont really want to drill two holes in my down pipe
If they don't, your turbine wheel comes out the exhaust and hurts someone, you'd probably be liable.Do they (NADM,pullin power,etc.) actually check this in tech? I kow its in the rules just dont really want to drill two holes in my down pipe
Your right Hotrodtractor. My buddy blew a turbo last year at a pull and sent the wheel flying. Thank god we had the 3/8in bolts in. The bolts were so bent we couldn't get them out. Hes actually got that turbo going boom on youtube which was pretty cool for us, not so cool for him.:doh:It does get teched and it can be a major safety hazard if they are not present. I have a buddy that lost a turbine wheel out of large turbo on the pulling track several years ago - the wheel spiral cut the down pipe for about 18" in length and about 2 1/2" between the cuts.... it was wicked cool - I wish i would have gotten a picture of it for these discussions. i have seen wheels go out the pipe without damaging anything in the exhaust and fly through the air - imagine what that wheel spinning at that speed would do if it hit someone...
