    If you plan to go quicker than 10.50, you should definitely consider a full-chassis car.

    Really?

    His car wasn't that fast, I caught him on the return road and passed him in the pits.

      How old is that article? Says....."To get a back-half car to go fairly fast — say, low 10s — is not that difficult, but weight distribution becomes a problem. Because the rear is so much lighter than the front, it’s hard to make the car perform consistently and react quickly. If you plan to go quicker than 10.50, you should definitely consider a full-chassis car."

      But it's not that hard to take weight off the front and if needed, put some of it towards the rear of the car.
