It seems as if the Losi has the lightest drive train but the Serpent seems as if it's the lightest truck out.

Serpent does very well out of the hole its a fast kit for your application I would run ceramic bearings.

i would think a Losi Truggy with Buggy Gearing and a RB mods DRAG mod OS 28.. if you are only going to drag with this engine.. get it modified just for drag racing and get ready to buy new drive chain parts

What are the best tires for dragging and is the Buku clutch gonna grab as hard as the M2C. And how does that Novarossi 25 Roma perform, does it has rpms and the torque needed for dragging?

I wonder if the monster slick will be too big or will the gt slicks would work better.

M2C is what you want for your application. Shoes are 1.5g each.

I will look into the tires and the m2c clutches have worked really well for me in the past on my monster trucks. Now I will just have to play with my gear ratio on the truggy.

I went with the Eight T because of the parts availability hopefully it can handle the power plant I will put on there.

I love this kinda question. "Im going to do something nobody else does and I want to know what will work best." Problem being since nobody does it nobody knows what works best. Its up to you to figure it out when your the one blazing the trail.
