    I'm talking about drag racing. I've figured out how to handle it while racing. I need drag help.

    I don't think you can get any softer than RS tires...
    You just have to find a happy medium of weight and gearing, I don't believe it runs full weight, Im sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

    200 kg is too much for that car. I run a little over a 100 kg with positive 50 ballast.

    Alright. I think it's mainly because when I run I'm burning out up to 50 mph
    Different transmission setup would be the best alternative?

    Hiya guys and girls :)

    I after info in tuning cars for drag racing

    It's not something I really bother with, I'm more of a track racer then a drag racer but i want to give drag racing a go and none of my cars seem to be good enough. Even my 1000+BHP cars get beat by lesser powered cars.:ouch: :O

    Any tips and tricks on making a quick drag car in all drive trains would be appreciated. :tup:
     
  7. The drag tune can be the best out there but its no good without a fast reaction / tree.

    So I've started tuning awhile back and I'm great with the transmission but I feel like the cars could be faster if I knew what I was doing with my suspension..any tips/help?

    Suspension can mess up your transmission, most rear wheel drive cars are raised as high as possible (McLaren F1 I preferred to lower it) 4wd usually like to be lowered as much as possible (Again my aventador was as high as possible) With some cars it's just down to preference.

    So its sorta just for looks how you want the car to sit? It's not gonna hurt the 1/4 time too bad?

    Depends on the car. Muscle cars always want to be as high as possible, same with the vipers and corvettes, cars with a lot of down force can be lowered and not lose too much. 4wd are much more leniant because of the Torque split. my aventador was highered but the torque split was 18/82 and a 2nd gear launch.

    The car might not have the power to hit 200. Been a while since I was last on, so couldn't look at the car. Try nos

    Update? Wrong sheet settings? Down force?

    Most definitely could be as it slows you down.

    I don't doubt that but I do doubt you'll see 200 without nos
