This is a build I did a few years ago; I had been building a lot of multi rail retro cars prior to starting on this, so it is kind of over built for a modern drag car, but it works very well. Motor is a custom build 15B from '94 in wing car days, still going strong. Chassis is the ever popular WRP $10 kit.

Something totally old school, & IMO the best thing you can do with a Womp...

One of my most winning no-bar slip joints.

A long wheelbase slipjoint... ended up dropping a Gp 20 in this one due to its weight, 182 grams. The wheelbase is not quite right, needs to be shortened by about 3/16" in the rear, but it is such a consistent runner that I am not messing with it.
