    i think drag racing is pretty lame. i'd never dump that kind of cash into a car to get to drive it for a whopping 6 seconds of my life a couple times a month.

    but still, that car hauls ass.

    About 6 months ago, the car was bodied as a Celica.They must have gotten sponsership from Scion. I originally thought Christian Rado was gonna run that radical new FWD monster under the Scion bodywork. Haven't seen it yet.

    Too bad, considering all the work was done by Bob Norwood Racing. Had a traditional-style Ford 9inch driving the rear wheels with an X-drive tranfercase, and huge ass front tires. NHRA tried phasing it out twice through rule changes - I wonder if they succeeded this time.

    Wow. That's really not a Scion though- RWD, custom chassis? C'mon.

    They prolly dropped the Celica because they have a Toyota factory sponsorship. And the Celica is no longer being sold in the US (And may not even be made)

    Just like AEM's drag "Civic,"...rear-wheel drive, NSX motor...that's just the nature of the sport, the actual drag vehicles have little or nothing to do with the production cars they are modeleled after...
