How will weight affect the dragster?
Weight will affect the dragster by making it heavier and making the dragster accelerate slower. However if the dragster is racing in a downhill slope then weight will be better because it will pull the dragster down the hill faste than if there was no weight.but in this case I'm racing on the ground so I don't need a lot of weight. I will still add some weight to pull my car along and not have friction or wind completely slow it down.
How will Aerodynamics affect the dragster
If my dragster is just a block of wood with wheels and some weight, I'm going to fail miserably. So I need to have aerodynamics to make it good fast. I will make the dragster be thin and have curves so the wind will roll off the curves instead of hitting the dragster strait on and slowing it down.
How will friction affect the dragster?
We are racing on smooth ground so there shouldn't be as much friction as there would be on a carpet or grass.we are using a specific set of wheels we are given, so there isn't really much I can tweak on them. But there won't be much friction so that should be ok.
