Look in the build section and you will have your answers. 700 and pulley's for the most part.

george is right.

Im using a Peerless 801 transaxle and so far has help up for over 3 years of abuse. But i am soon switching to a peerless 400 with 6.5 pulley on front and 3 on rear.

For drag racing, i think i would go with a centrifugal clutch, chain drive to a live axle. you liable to bust something if you drop the clutch on a 700 to drag race it
