~ Traction issues....
A buddy of mine and I were coming home from a meet today and found ourselves at the light....side by side. I think we all know what comes next....
I was all over the place, traction wise I could not get a grip!
His car is very similar to mine however he has stock mid pipe, ROUSH mufflers, 3.31's and a Bama tune vs my GT500 axle back, JBA after cat mid pipe, 3.73's and FRPP pro-cal
He pulled on me due to traction issues....
Did it again at a 40 roll in 3rd gear and I pulled on him easy everytime.
I have the stock GT500 GY f1's and I thought they would have helpped me.....but nope!
I had no wheel hop thx to the lca relo brackets.
What can be done to fix the traction issue?

Hard to hook these cars on the street. I have Kumho 285s and I can hook up ok. I am not going to launch the car hard with these tires though.My YouTube channel with exhaust and drag vids:

Im gonna have to start figuring out how to launch a tad better it seems. Im not really a drag 1/4mi kinda guy, more into road course & handling. But in this instance it presented itself so I thought I would take advantage of it.
Practice ....... I guess.

i ran another 12 gt with identical mods as me besides it was a 3.31 vs 3.73 debate. A first gear roll for us resulted in him spinning the 1-2 shift with the 3.73s and I didnt. A 20 roll up to 130 resulted with me winning by a 1/2 car length with no car pulling on another.
It's all about traction. 3.73s are great for a stock/slight bolt-on car. At the track they tend to get in the way if you have to shift into 5th. I'll line up a 3.31 gear 5.0 vs any other from a roll without hesitation. My 3.31 car doesn't have issues trapping almost 121 in the 1/4 mile n/a.1992 5.0 302/aod

Hmm since you only have the one hole I'd play with front and rear shock settings and get sticky tires
