Tuesday Tech Question (11/12)
The Tuesday Tech Question is a fun section where prospective technical inspectors or anyone who wants to get a better idea of how to work the NHRA Rulebook can test their knowledge and search abilities. If you have an NHRA Rulebook, try and find the answer to the question in the book before looking down at the answer. If you don’t have a Rulebook but are an NHRA Member, you can download a pdf at nhra.com under ‘Member Benefits’.
I was told by my local NHRA Tech Inspector that I needed to weld the quick-disconnect steering wheel adapter to the steering shaft. Is it not legal to connect the adapter to the steering shaft with a bolt and locking nut?
A bolt and locking nut is not a legal method to attach a quick-disconnect steering wheel adapter to the steering shaft. The adapter must be welded to the shaft.
