Auto x vs drag

Kind of just to start a discussion of the differences between auto x suspension and a drag set up suspension.

Drag setup will be very stiff in the rear

Hmm I was just reading about suspension on American Muscle, and it seems like they believe a softer (at least softer than competition, by their wording) is better suited for drag use:

Drag racing springs are very different from the other types, but just as with the competition springs they are best suited for track use. The difference when compared to the competition springs is that drag-springs allow the suspension to have a much fuller range of movement. This is due to a softer spring rate, and also has a side effect of cornering ability suffering. The car will launch at the starting line with a little more authority, however, since the spring rate allows the weight of the car to transfer to the rear wheels better than with other springs. This assists the car in hooking up and getting the power to the ground.

Or am I just misinterpreting?

Sounds good to me. I was just was gonna see if anyone had anything. I gonna have to research a lot over this. Over advanced alignment criteria so my topic is auto x vs drag suspension set ups and camber and so on.
