our class used to allow s-10's and rangers. The rangers were just dangerous and flip over machines, but the s-10's did alright. The front of them are simular to a metric car, and have very fogiving leaf springs in the rear. if you could get enough rear weight they do alright. Also if you can run car wheels instead of them crazy ofset wheels they s-10's came with you would be better off also. A 7 inch wide s-10 wheel has a 6 inch offset, while a car wheel will have 3. You track would be alot wider with the car rims.....

thanks.... we can run straight 6 or V6 or V8.you can run 8" racing wheels, differant off set if needed. they reconmend the big wheel studs with 1" lug nuts.the rear weight was my most concern too. thanks again....later

I have run an S10 here and the setup is very similar to a 70's Camaro however due to the S10 being narrower than a car they have a lot more body roll to work out 2 inch dropped spindle and 3 inch blocks in the rear help this if it's allowedwe run a high bank 3/8 mile and I could run flat out and never let off the gas. also look into getting a 3 liter Mercruiser Crank for the 2.5 this adds about 60hp and lots of torque. and boost compression to about 11:1
