Here is something I have been playing with, Chevy dually, plenty long wheelbase, Gp20, 182 grams, .500 wide rears.

@MacMan, nice dually.  Is that a sheet of lead behind the guide flag?

Cool truck.
Looks like it could have started out as a silp joint chassis,they work nice with cars that don't use wheelie bars.

Is inline required in drag racing or just simpler to build?

You could build however you like as far as motor configuration.
