use of nitrous oxide, supercharger, turbocharger and normal aspiration at different weight breaks for parity. All entries
compete on a specially designed M/T or Goodyear 33x10.5W or 31x10.5W slick.
Steel, aluminum, fiberglass and carbon fiber bodies and body parts are allowed as long as the car retains it's original
appearance and profile. Pro Street & Pro Mod type bodies are permitted. Wheel well openings can be modified for tire
clearance. Rear wings are allowed, but may not extend more than 28 inches from the transition point with the body to

FUEL / FUEL SYSTEMS:
Gasoline & Alcohol only (No Nitro) The WCSA reserves the right to check gasoline at any time during competition.
The addition of chemical additives intended to alter the makeup of the gasoline for increased performance is strictly
prohibited. During fuel check, a competitor must identify the brand of gasoline being used. The sample will be
considered illegal if it does not match the baseline results (ex. color, dielectric reading + or -.2, and chemical tests)
logged by WCSA. Failure to pass fuel check is grounds for disallowance of the run during competition and
disqualification from the event during eliminations.
Any cylinder head is allowed as long as only 1 spark plug per cylinder is functional.
Entries may utilize only 1 Distributor or Mag.
All Outlaw 10.5 cars must utilize an NHRA-accepted lower engine oil-retention device; may use a belly pan in lieu of a
