Default No prep drag

Has anyone had experience building a no prep drag car with custom chassis from scratch without a donor car?

or would it be better to start with a dr10 and build from there?

Yes it would be better to start with the DR10 or the new Losi 22 Drag car. I have built mine with the DR10 and done a lot of test and tuning on the 132 feet and it is progressing very well.

I would go with a well known platform, tons of aftermarket support for the DR10, Traxxas based and the 6.1/6.2 . Also support for Losi cars, and they also just announced a drag specific RTR.

Just need to decide if you want a mid motor or rear motor. Rear motor i think is easier to setup and has a larger setup window. I've ran my fastest passes with my mid motor (6.1 based) car. It took a lot longer to figure out what works though.
