Yes, I understand chassis engineering. Kindof have to be to design and build a new chassis for a vehicle. I hate to be the bearer of bad new to you, but you are mistaken on this application. Circle track and drag racing are two different animals......totally different.

While wieght is transferred to the rear right the axle torque will cause the rear right tire to lift. If you go back and look at what ever books you have read you will see this. This is why drag cars add preload to the right rear suspension to counteract the lifting of the rear right tire on launch. If it is not done, the car will not launch straight. This is also why any one holer street car will spin the right rear tire every time.
