l=2E Our cars (type 85 and 98q) have strange gearing for drag racing, they =
are short and don't complement the power of the converted cars. As an examp=
le, I couldn't even reach bull boost in my 4000tq in first gear. When I got=
 second gear after the long throw and such at 30-40mph, hte race was over u=
