    Buddy is being told that his 10 sec '16 Mustang with 6r80 needs an SFI spec Trans shield and flexplate shield...per the NHRA rule book this is true. However he can't seem to find either anywhere...can anyone help?

    The track is Wild Horse Pass in AZ.

    Does it say a blanket is not useable? Much faster cars use blankets vs shields

    Doesn't mention it at all, apparently the big issue with a blanket is it is a street driven car, and he's been told to avoid them

    What is the logic and who is giving the advice? Seems like the person telling him these things could solve the problem for him.

    If he's concerned about trans heat on the street, he can always remove it after racing.
