Hey mate sorry no one will help you ,,Its about just making your own design and stuff,,not many here want to help In regards to chassis designs its really just a personal design to your likings,,,wish I could help you,, it really is very simple to make your own chassis and just add commercially available hardware,,

Here's my build. Your pretty much on your own. I was. I did have some help from members. I started mine with no engine. I was lucky the engine fit after the frame was built. You will need to research this build. What type of rear wheels, GoKart or wheels from Bishop Racing .What size engine. I used a Zenoah G62. Frame design. Belt axle or a Skellenger rear end. A full scale Top Fuel wheelbase is 300" so 1/4 scale is 75". etc etc. There are pictures of dragster frames on here. You will need to search for them. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=2534

A good starting point would be to buy a plastic scale model kit (there are all kinds of them on ebay) and use it as a guide / or for inspiration.

Using plastic models as a guide / template:

(a) Fill plastic model body shell with spray can insulation foam (cover window and wheel openings, etc.), (b) Draw lines across body shell at suitable / equal spacing. (c) Saw cut through body to obtain slices of cross section. (c) Copy / enlarge cross section slices. (d) This is a good low tech starting point.(e) Or spend lots of money on a 3D scanner and take it from there
