Cool 2wd dragster

We'll since mods are being done, I'm gonna hit the track more. I thinking of pulling out the right light, removing all seats and councle except driver seat, eemoving tailgate,and doing some wheels in the back.... since this truck will be put back together every track run, what wheels do I do?.... I got traction bars, and mods will start summer

Since you have a 2wd I say take notes from the drag race community of old. Small, narrow fronts (less weight), and light weight rims in back with as wide a rim and tire as you can afford and can fit. Remove as much weight up front as possible. Heck you could probably relocate the batteries onto the frame and move them towards the back. Weight away in the front and put as much necessary weight above the drive tires as possible to increase your traction.

You'll have to do a roll bar setup unless you plan on going sub 10.0 in the 1/4. If you plan on that, a full cage will be required. Traction is going to be the biggest thing in a 2wd truck. It'll back half hard, but that first 60 feet is where it counts the most in competition. Good traction is also going to keep you safe.
