Even a 2wd D/A with slicks and stock suspension won't lift the front end because the motor is too heavy. With some work to the rear suspension you might be able to get better weight transfer in a RC truck but not in a EC or CC, too much wheelbase.
BTW my truck's race weight is 6600#, I wonder how fast a lightning would be at that weight?Edited by: mtomac
Weight transfer on a 7,300 # CC SB 2WD is crap. The truck is sprung so heavy for working a load, not running the 1/4. You would need pull 2 or 3 leaf's and install a coil over to get the squat and weight transfer.
You can watch some of the videos of mine launching, the squat is barely there. I can get 1.7 to 1.9 sec 60' foots with no squat. Of course, those Fords squat like a ***** in heat with those crappy springs anyway.
