    Basic Tech Inspection Checklist

    I've been scouring the interwebz trying to find the checklist for both autocross and drag racing. Does anyone know where I can find a recent copy of these things? Reason is that I have a crack on the passenger side windshield and was wondering if I'll have to get it fixed before MAP/Terrace Bay/TBAC autox. Thanks!

    Re: Basic Tech Inspection Checklist

    I couldn't find anything about a crack for autocross but according to NHRA rules you can't have a crack in your windshield so you'd be out of luck at MAP for sure and probably Terrace Bay unless they are really lax on stuff like that.

    Re: Basic Tech Inspection Checklist

    When I replaced my windshield through Elite last year it was $550 for the windshield and installation of both the front and rear glass, but it was good quality PGW glass. When I went to Apple they told me $320 for a windshield and installation but it was for a chinese (FY) windshield.

    Here is the tech form for TBAC autox: http://www.asncanada.com/wp-content/..._Insp_Form.pdf

    Here is the tech info for Terrace Bay: http://www.superiorclassics.ca/?pgid=10

    Here is the info for MAP Proving Grounds autox (specifically says NO cracked windshields): http://www.maperformance.com/blogs/proving-grounds/39577027-auto-x-information

    If you don't want to get hassled, you're going to have to get it fixed.

    Thanks Marc for the links. Looks like at least Terrace Bay will let get away with the cracked windshield (didn't see it on the list, unless I missed it somewhere).

    Windshield is part of the NHRA rules, which Terrace Bay and Brainerd follow, so they could deny you. I've seen it slide as well though so it's up to you.

    But they won't let anyone with a cracked windshield do autocross

    Then why do they not allow bikers to wear ballistic nylon? Why do they mandate helmets below a certain time? Why do they not allow slow bikers to wear jeans? Or allowing passengers?

    Textile motorcycle suits are aloud at every track Ive been to. I havent seen any of these other things pass tech. Probably just hear say from your sources... When is the last time you had a bike go through tech?

    Re: Basic Tech Inspection Checklist

    When i did it with Gerald, he was fairly picky which he should be. But i have done it with other guys who just shrug their shoulders. Basically in your case jessley i think they MAY let it slide in terrace bay. The car is mint shape other than a crack in the windshield, and actually when i raced my focus the windshield was broken i think.
