drag racing parts can be got at grand motorsports, team walbern, litespeed. their parts are for purpose built drag cars not a transformed one. i have two grand motorsports (electric and nitro) cars and the quality is top notch!

I have drag raced a fusion in the bracket raceing class. Also a NTC3 and V-ONE-RR EVO. I had alot of trouble getting the car to launch straight until i tightened down the diffs until they were basiscly spools. Lock them down. Most cars are over geared for the 132 foot drag strip. The 3 speed in the fusion is useless. What parts do you want?

If you have a high output motor on your fusion and want some wider tires on the rear end to improve traction you might check with wolfpack radicals , he make adapters for the shumacher fusion so you can use 1/8 scale onroad tires.

good info; yes I have locked the diff before and yes it does go straight, you wer say'n about 3spd is useless but isn't better if you could modify the gears to make it change quickly? that what I did my friend.... Im using the low gear option and modify the transmission lock to lock the 2nd gear quicker then 3rd gear. it kinda help me take off the car quicker then hit second gear and quickly to 3rd.... I build my fusion as light as possible for drag but year later I smashed it, went straight to the wall. now im rebuilding it but im making it like full drag car with 3spd. I extend the chassis to make it 12" wheelbase and rear wheel drive only and fitting a serpent 1/8 wheels on it and custom shorten front suspension arms to make it narrow. but for now I need a short belt drive to suit for my diff. would you know by any chance where can I get a belt drive size of 270mm length with 90T in 5mm witdh ? or even closer? pls let me know if ever........

............................Here is a link to his website http://www.wolfpackradicals.com when you get to his website click on questions and tell him what you want. He has some aftermarket products for the Fusion. My car handles great and is very fast.

prather #9010 for .21 engines. you're probably better off just using a regular style pipe.
