Of course it can. I say that based on common sense and actual posts from members who have ran at the strip with DR. The obvious caveat is that you WILL experience much great wear and tear on your clutch and other drivetrain components from using the car in this fashion. It is not a drag racer.

im not going to drag this car every wkend, im pretty much done with my bolt ons for now and i see what i can do. for me, ive been drag racing since i first started driving. so its a no brainer for me.
