Might see 10's one day when it gets a 401, but needs safety gear to go there.

12.00 flat was my goal in the 90's with my street strip car because at my local track, any quicker.
than that and they wisely required a Fire Jacket, 5-Point Harness ( I think, or 4 ), and a Roll Bar.
So 12.00 flat for a street car seemed like a reasonable respectable limit or goal.
No idea what current cut-off times or speeds or requirements are at my old track now.
May I ask, what are the current "break points" and Safety Requirements at Perth MotorPlex ?

For the off street drag nights that I run things are a little more relaxed, I can run down to 11.00 as is then for 10.00 to 10.99, I would need a 4 point cage and 4 point harness, at 140 mph I need to add a parachute and for 9.99 or quicker it needs to meet current ANDRA (our version of NHRA) regulations, which would include a bunch of other requirements. 

Modern street cars manufactured after 2008 can run down to 10.00 as delivered.

I’ll be pretty happy if I can squeeze another couple of tenths out of it as is with minor upgrades and tuning. 

If I actually want to enter a proper race meeting it would fit into our “Super Street” class, which is dial your own handicap racing for 10.00-13.00 second cars, so consistency becomes more important than outright speed.
