Question Dragrace Big or Small Sport?

hello

I'm new here. And my English is Short and Bad.

I'm Johan from Sweden.

I Wonder how many here how likes or do have a Drag racer of any kind.
I'm building my second one. Almost Finish.
But there seams so be lack of interest in Sweden..

I know it's not the best build. Butt there is hard to find good parts in Sweden.
Scale Should be about 1:3
Right now I'm working with the body. It will be painted with a very bright yellow and may be Silver Flames in front.

The drag racing scene is smaller than other areas of the hobby. Which means there are fewer manufacturers of drag racing parts and vehicles. There are even fewer manufacturers making large scale drag racing parts and vehicles. I know there are or were some small manufacturers in the US making 1/4 dragster rolling chassis or at least dragster bodies. I don't think any were RTR and required at least some fabrication to mount the motor. So you're not alone in having to do what you're doing!

Very cool car though. The fabrication looks excellent as well, nice job. What is powering it?

Thank you. the engine is a lincoln 110cc full automatic 1 gear 4 stroke. It,s a cheap motorcycle engine. Whit the new CDi and the larger carburettor It have around 10 hp I'm not sure what the car will weight. But I'm sure It weights less then a bike. And on a bike you have a driver Whit this power on a bike you Easy can do Weal spin whit driver on it. So my hope is that It can get down all the power whit the Wide back Tires so I get to high speed Fast. the width of both tires is 400mm or 15,7 Tum.
