Mike,
I usually set front hoops at 20-25 degrees from vertical. (NHRA mandates no less than 20)  I think this one ended up at 22.
Hope that helps
Daniel

   You might want to contact someone from tech about that angle. I know I bought a project that was started back in the early 90's and tech told me the front hoop had to be at least 30 deg.  You can get a deviation request . When you look in your rule book it depicts a example of what they are looking for.  Better to be safe then.......

  Thought the belly tank guys would like this link. Really cool picture. Maybe somebody should copy the photo and put it on Land Racing.
