Default how'* this sound?

I was thinking, and after I get a job and fix up my car, I wanna build a drag race car. I was thinking about what to use, and I think I've decided. I'm going to buy a SSEi, soup up the motor, change it to RWD (cause you can get more power and I like wheelies), strip it down to bare naked, and install the basic drag stuff. What do y'all think? Just an idea.

You do realize there is more drivetrain to a RWD that FWD right?

I'm all for a cool project though. Go for it.

I know it'll be expensive, and I know it'll be a lot of work, but I'll have fun and I'll learn some new stuff.

But wouldn't it be a lot cooler to see an old gramma car pull up at a drag strip racing Camaros and stuff?
