Default DM-1 vs GTP Drag racer?

Looking at building a drag race only GT car. Narrowed it down to Ofna DM-1 or Ofna GTP. Which one and WHY. The cost difference between them is not a factor.

Get the GTV2e instead. It has a longer chassis which will help the race rotate less out of the hole, and has a better diff ratio (4:30-1 instead of the 3:30-1 in the dm-1 and the gtp2e.

If you have to have either the dm-1 or the GTP2e, get the Late Model Dirt Oval version of the GTP2e. It's got a better drag race vertical rear shock setup, and the pivot ball rear suspension, which will help remove the toe in and increase your contact patch in the rear. All of that and less money to boot.

i have the DM-1 and the GTV-2e and if i had it do to do again, i'd get another DM-1 as my 2nd car again, just better overall construction and quality. no issues with front end like the gtv, no steering slop.
