1989 Mitsubishi Mirage Drag Racing Timeslips
Ahh, the joys of drag racing a Front Wheel Drive Vehicle. I've had to become a weekend physics expert while studying the fine art of moving these cars down the 1/4 mile in a respectable amount of time. I can't complain though. With a very basic setup, both cars are getting excellent traction. Drive to the track, bolt on the slicks and race!
