I have been 3 cell drag racing for as long as they have had 3 cells.
My best runs have been 1.28 @ 102 mph in 3 cell rail (dragster)
and 1.36 seconds @ 97 mph in a 3 cell funny car

If your looking for drag chassis most of the record holding cars are built by Grand Motorsports (GrandMotorsports.com) or JC Dragworks unfortunately gear box style cars like pictured above look awesome but are not as fast as normal style (sidewinder) cars and don't work any better because of their design. That style car came out a couple of years ago but was never as fast as existing cars.
What is the fastest you have run so far with your cars?
