    i like drag racing and i like funny cars. but like i said on other forums this aint "nothing but a shelf queen".
    no way is that chassis going to be competitive against current RC drag cars. and there's no way bashers are going to spend $500 per car + whatever the timing system costs to drag race bash.
    drag racers aren't going to want it cause its doesn't work as well as the currently available chassis' and bashers are going to get bored with it real quick. it's pointless, it's useless, it's gimmick filled, it's a waste of $500 bucks.

    I actually think they did pretty good on this one. The frame is made from metal and it looks just like a real one!! 70+ will get drag racers loving this vehicle.

    70mph for an RC drag car is slow. not uncommon for those things to do 85+ in a 132feet.
