What is the reason to heavily modify RWD car and go for 1/8, where the car is deemed to go for 1 mile???

I am not worrying about 1/8 and 1/4 times either. The goal is speed at 1/4 mark and time with speed at 1/2 mark.

You could come to Russian tracks and would see the changes in your 1/8 records
in the US, a lot of people race the 1/8 because that's the only tracks available in their areas and the speeds are less than 1/4 racing...in 1/4 racing the 1/8 is also a measurement to make calculations as well. I follow roll racing 1/2 mile and mile because most cars I like are not setup for 1/4 racing where the first 60ft is crucial. to set up a car correctly for 60ft usually means it's not going to turn well (AWD doesn't count )
