Real drag cars run no rear toe in because thy have a straight axle!!!!!!!! Not independent suspension.

So do all of the independent suspension drag cars, zero toe for a straightline, if the drag race is going be close you want as little drag as possible. Drag racing touring cars is like rollerskating on grass, it works, kinda but what's the point. If you can't beat him on a real track and are just looking for that one thing your car is faster...

i think i`ll need a little (about half a degree) of toe in on the rear because there`s alway`s a bit of play in things .. soo it will staigten up when going ...

but i have plenty of power, i can spin all 4 tyres for sure on the whole lane and beyand ... so my biggest concern will be setting this power to the ground .... well a stronger spring gives less traction (normally speaking) but a softer spring will absorb power (wich is not an issue because i have plenty) but it may bottom out ........


balans will be the key i think .... and i think a soft spring with anti squat will do nicely ?...?? .,,.

maybe a high ride height with soft springs in both front and rear will work ???

Anti-squat = droop?

Hey yur purty smart there feller!!

cool, then I guess putting a SPOOL in the rear would be helpful.
