It was fun but the class didn't have much people in it so it was hard to say if it was going to take off or not. I was at the point that I needed to build an engine so I just took the leap to super street since I was putting that much money into the motor anyways. Now super street is just a battle of who can apply the most power down without spinning, if you spin your done. If my truck wasn't past the point of no return I'd probably come back and race 10.90, just as fun and a lot cheaper. I wouldn't even consider jumping to super street for all the current 10.90 guys, we just want more people to race lol
Super Street is crazy fast for the weight they carry. When we built Max'd Out, I wanted a 9 second street legal truck. We broke into the 9's within a couple of months of finishing the truck. We pretty much owned that class for several years. About the only time we lost is when we broke something. My idea of a diesel race truck was a full body and frame truck that you drove to the line, and back to the pits under it's own power with no nitrous.

The class now is headed into the 8's and trucks like Max'd Out are old school, still makes a sh!t load of power but can't 60 well enough to hang with the top trucks. You can't build and support a 8 second truck unless you are crazy rich or have really good sponsors. The 10.90 class makes it possible for a guy on a budget to race a fast truck and have a hell of a lot of fun.

There were a number of guys who were wanting a 10 second (either 10.5 or 10.9) class and NHRDA added one. The only way it will last is for guys/gals to support it and race. There were a total of 25 trucks that competed in the 10.90 class last year, largest field was 9 trucks. There were a total of 78 trucks that raced 11.90, (super diesel) with the largest truck count in one race being 30.

I disagree with... I'm def not rich and I don't have big money sponsors. It can be done but it takes patience and a few years of investing in the truck and continuing to make it better to get there. I'm sure there was plenty of support getting max'd out going or keeping it going.
My truck WAS a complete frame and body until this week. But weight is weight to me. Doesn't matter how you get to 6000 lbs as long as you are there. I cut a bunch of weight out of mine since I run some pro street when available. And having a 1500 lbs weight disadvantage is no good. So I cut weight out and will put weight in for my super street events.

No you are correct first couple of years it was me, after that the truck had some great sponsors, but I was out of it by then. Still expensive to race no matter what, I put on 17,000 miles driving to races in 2012. Nothing close around here now, closest race is the new one in Sacramento.which is just shy of 500 miles.
