I`ve got serious traction problems when I race, from a dead idle if i floor it all i do is spin to the red line.. Another problem is really shifting into second, the backend goes crazy and scared me one time because of how much my truck swerved. How should I get out of the hole? I thought that traction wouldnt be to much of a problem with the tires I have, but thats not the case. :racing:

You could buy a set of traction bars and remove the overload leaf. I can get 2.02 60' with 275/60/15 yokohama avid st street tires. Am using a 2200 stall and I do floor it off the line. There is some tire spin but not enough to lose more than .2 sec ET

dropping the air pressure in a street tire wont help you. its different with et streets and dr's and stuff like that. F1's should have little trouble sticking. what are you launching at?
