Adding weight to a car for traction is like completely opposite of the whole F=m*A rule.
Unless you need to weight a car to stay under 10 seconds, or to fix radical handling F/r balance issues, or other rule; you're pissing up a rope, wondering why it raining.
Remove 10% weight, Acceleration goes up 10%, all else being equal. (F is horsepower, in a very general way, after losses, etc. But, a lighter car will have a different tune, as the advance curve related stuff will want to be different.)
The opposite is even more true; Adding it always works, unlike the removing weight.
You need to know "Contact patch force" vs suspension compliance, because you ride that number as the the suspension dips, and the mass transfer to the rear happens.
At the maximum weight transfer to the rear, That's your maximum traction point
; that's where you see all the lines in the sidewall of the big drag wheels.
(I have not seen that on an MN12; please send pic, it will become my wallpaper.)
Weight balance is more important in Lemons racing; for drag, it's pull everything you can out, Especially out front. See The sticky...
Our cars are too long to wheelie, although anything's possible with enough boost and nitrous, lol. Again, send pix.
