I'm looking to find a car that would be suitable to drag race in. What are some things that I should be looking for?
Good drag race all have the same thing in common, power. Sure you want a car with good horsepower but you also want a car with a good horsepower to torque ratio.
And just to be clear cars with rear wheel drive trains usually give you better results.
After that you want to figure out how much the car weighs, obviously lighter is better, but you can change that later.
Once you have all of that figured out then you can start changing things like the tires.
Hope this helps.
