Here are some tips you’ll need to follow to get the best setup out of your drag racing car:

  1. Use a 4 wheel drive car (to avoid wheelspin)
  2. Try to use a faster car or tune it up
  3. Use better tyres (The softer the better)

That’s why we recommend you to use a 4 wheel drive car for drag racing as it will help you avoid getting wheelspin and losing precious time.

If you don’t have any 4 wheel drive cars then try to look for the fastest one you can find or tune it up to improve its performance.

Last but not least make sure that your tyres are soft enough to give you plenty of grip and traction to get a good speed down the straight.
