Okay here it is, -- Steve Richmond's guide
to successful street racing; First, get yourself a stiff, light body
that doesn't look too intimidating. Second, get your hands on the
largest, lightest engine you can find and stuff it in there as far back
as possible, even if you have to do minor surgery on the firewall.
Third, find some regular street tires with a sticky compound, and start
with a posi rear end from any reliable brand with around 3.73:1 ratio.
Fourth, and this is the most important part,-- keep it looking and sounding
as stock as possible, and tune it, tune it, and tune it some more until
you get the combination working perfectly. Fifth, don't ever run
at the strip, keep your hood locked (don't ever open it for anyone) and
don't get caught.
