I'm debating on buying one, What are pros/ cons from the guys that have one or used to own one?

Cheap, easy to go real fast, easy to drive at lower power levels, fun to drive at higher power levels, bitch to transport and load, bitch to store, easy to work on.....
This is practically what my friend told me word for word about his pipe rack.

Pretty gay in my opinion.

If you are talking about a pipe rack that is.

I'd rather have a 10 second street car than an 8.50 1 speed.
The man asked a specific question of specific people which you as usual missed. Go back and read it again naynay… you've never owned a dragster or even a 10 second street car. Get the '66 chevy going, it's a cool car..

I would assume running a dragster would require having a "crew". At least with a door car, an individual can run one by themselves.

Yes, true. But I have run my car with just me and 1 guy. You can do it yourself if you run a radiator and gas though. Lots of the 8.90 index guys drive them around and back.

Deadly consistent, I can load my car by myself in minutes. Easy to drive the stripe in, dont have to spend a ton to go 4s. They take more room to maneuver but for most part easy. If you get one inspect the chassis well. The uprights especially, and verify it has been transported with a chassis bladder. If it hasn't walk away!!!

When you say chassis bladder, do you mean an air bag that sits under the frame inflated during transport so the frame doesn't flex?

Yes. Some refer to them as bags, bladder etc. Same purpose. I put one under mine then put a strap across the cage and pull the car down on it. That way it cant move or flex.

That I could see that happening having at least one extra hand at the track. If for nothing else but too tow the car back to the pits.
