They all look really cool.

Question. Do you run them front wheels lifted or rolling? Seems like everyone has a different opinion on that.

Thanks again.

Well ra7c7er, No our front wheels are not touching the track. For Drag racing we keep them off for a couple reasons. 1st it drag, will slow ya down. 2nd we want the braid on the car to have as much contact with the braind on the track, thats where the car is getting its power! Now for the roundy round cars same ideal, but the front wheels come into play is around the turns. If the car starts to lean in the corners, the front wheel will help the car get around the turn. There is a fine line.
