I have a solution. NONE
From NHRA Rule Book. Sportsman ET brackets
One internal-combustion automotive-type, motorcycle, or
snowmobile engine permitted. Motorcycle or snowmobile-powered
vehicles without reverse may not burn out across starting line.
What I mean is it is illegal to have some push you back.
I guess if you install a reverse you can use it.

Yep, this has been the rule all along. We run jrs and Jr Comps and we have to do "short" burnouts. Our Jr Comp rules don't allow front brakes, thus without being able to lock the front tires we run a short burnout. I had thought about putting a reverse on a car, but it is easier to just buy good tires and a chassis that works! lol

Guilty, I moved this to the appropriate area so it stays current and available to all members.
I'm still looking for a cost effective solution for my M/C powered car. Starter moter with toother flywheel/gear, electric motor with pulley and tension lever, two underfed squirrels in a cage, crew member with a rope, whatever.
