  3. Re: Wheelie Bars! We Don't Need No Wheelie Bars, We Got Bumpers, Doors and Fenders!

    I don't have an 06 NHRA rule book but I think wheelie bars became mandatory in the fuel classes sometime last year. In all the rest of the classes it is optional, NOT BANNED, optional.

  4. Re: Wheelie Bars! We Don't Need No Wheelie Bars, We Got Bumpers, Doors and Fenders!

    In my opinion...
  5. Re: Wheelie Bars! We Don't Need No Wheelie Bars, We Got Bumpers, Doors and Fenders!
