I am just guessing and could be totally wrong though.
Well a huge part of drag racing would be eliminating any and all wheel slip for the hole shot hopefully the win. Any wheel slip in real drag racing means you are packing up and going home for the rest of the weekend buuuuuuuutttttttt..........
I would tend to agree with orca that the car would not go straight or steer very well unless you nailed the traction 100% but I could be wrong too.
