Default parking lot & drag racing

what car would you buy?
we are just kinda bashing around parking lots ( not the clean est place to run )
we use cones to set our track up

should we stick to shaft or move to belt cars
or just use 2wd cars?
what car would you go with?

Dragsters are mostly 2 wd. So pan car based stuff. But 4wd will be easier on a dirty and/or uneven track. Shaft or belt doesn't make a difference. What I use to do was sweep and blow of the track of debris. Then sprayed it down with 3 light coats of grape soda. Why grape soda? Because it smells good and usually has the most sugar content. 6 liters is enough for 132ft and cost 2 bucks from the dollar store. Spray again when the track gets slippery over time.
