Recently put this fwd drag car together just to have a play & see how it would run.
Car has been a bit floaty in the front end spinning the first 6 feet until digging in & taking off I have had to add weight to get it to settle it now doing 1.4s fairly smoothly.

Made it from Alexandria VA. To Syracuse NY in 4.5 hours in a Shelby Dayton!!! Used to go to Lauderdale FL. In a laser. The trip/ rally computer was a gas!
