Question: do you guys run in mud or on dry tracks? We had the local derby here drop two concrete blocks before the Derby and had compacts race then derbies them later. Very muddy conditions. From what I saw I think a fwd would be easier to handle in muddy conditions. Wonder if a ricer civic with v tech would be decent? Idk might have a shot at one in near future thought about building an enduro car for local race.

Reverse is for getting off the trailer. 1st is just for GETTING OFF!

My experience from running all around Michigan FWIW
1) Short tracks/Fig 8's- newer cavi's, grand am's and other small body gm cars with the 4/6 cyl seem to scoot pretty well out of the hole and turn a little better than the larger W body platform
2) Longer tracks/muddy tracks- W bodys with 3100/3.4dohc/3800's better mid range/top end speed in low gear, also much less work to make last and don't have to deal with aluminum suspension parts. As for the 3.4's awesome engines if you get them running well, can be a PITA to get to run well!!!
3) Of course each car has its pro's and con's to it but in general that has been my observation
