Humm, I missed the post Billy made so let me say "welcome to the board Billy!"  

Guys, Billy is one of the original Ramchargers of old.  I'm old enough to remember those guys as they kicked butt back in the 60s and 70s.  They were engineers with Chrysler Corp and as a sideline they formed the Ramchargers Racing outfit and ran at and won many national events.  They applied their engineering knowledge to drag racing and proved that an education was as important in racing as it was anywhere else in life.

Nice to have Billy drop in and we hope to see him around more in the future.

Sorry about hijaking the thread but just wanted to throw out the welcome matt.

The weight transfer is a function of total weight, acceleration, wheelbase, and center of gravity height. If the rear of the car squats or rises on launch, a transient oscillatory loading is added to that from weight transfer. In other words, squat or rise both increases and decreases rear wheel loading. It would be difficult to prove that an oscillatory loading is ever beneficial in a friction drive. As a general rule, design engineers endeavor to avoid oscillatory loadings. So, I would always encourage dragracers to adjust their rear suspensions for neither squat nor rise.
