You've not given us nearly enough to go on. I suspect.. you're using drifter slang. If I were to guess... you're talking about shaft drive, versus belt drive chassis. But you gotta tell us.

Wow, you really buried the lead there.

IIRC, pan car (sidewinder) style, has motor inertia help hold the front of the car down. I suspect, the inline motor setups are there for scale appearance. I think.... you should check the rules of your local drag racing group. Something tells me that there will be rules on what is legal for whatever class you want to run.

I can't understand why somebody would chose inline. The transmission is less efficient that sidewinder...

By the way, you should consider adding an additional pinion between the motor pinion and the spur gear. It will make the motor run in the same direction as the wheels and prevent the nose to lift...
