Default Drag racing

While looking at the RC Car threads, I was curious as to why there was no Pro Stock style electric or nitro style race bikes?
You could fit a wide slick, wheely bars and have some fun! Then, tuning becomes an even bigger challenge to get a good et/mph.
Any ideals? I might even want to try doing just for the fun of it! Larry

Inelson,

I am looking into drag bikes myself. There is a company called Shredder-X that makes a bike but I cannot for the life of me find a proper link to there website (if there still is one).
I am just getting into r/c drag racing and I think I might build my own. I have 2 Kyosho RGV GP 1/8 arriving soon from the US and I'm thinking of turning one of those into one buy building a new swingarm etc to suit a drag foam wheel etc.

They stopped making the Shredder-X a while ago.  I am constantly on the lookout for one but every time I do find one someone beats me to the sale.  I will have one some day.  I believe the Shredder was a 1/10 scale not an 1/8th.
