Past engine builder was developing a cheap dragster concept using a V-10 Chrysler engine. It could come from a Viper or truck.

Use the H.A.M.B. dragster rules as core.
Let them use automatics and EFI.
Have a list of accepted donor vehicles for the drivetrain.
Keep a reasonable e.t. limit. 10 flat for the quarter and 6 for the eight.

This will either end up as a pack of rat rod, steampunk, MadMax looking machines, or it will end up as any other cookie cutter high dollar class.
