    Chiroed my tires shifting into 3rd for the first time...good or bad?

    I had my cam installed this past spring and the other night I got on it pretty good when it was cooler out. Well I launched her at one light and after shifting into 2nd I ran it all the way up to 5900 RPMs(peak dyno power) and shifted into 3rd and for the first time my tires chirped going into 3rd.....is that power getting to the ground or losing traction. Basically is that good or bad? TIA

    Also had LS7 clutch installed by Frans96ss (member here) a few months back, does that affect it?

    the clutch will definitely affect that as well as the extra power from the cam. the clutch is gripping better so you are getting more power to the pavement, and the extra HP from your cam will help you as well. The colder weather also comes into play.

    What gears do you have? My buddy has 4:10's and he has heard a slight chirp in 4th before but can roast them in 1st and 2nd and chirp them in 3rd as well.

    I wish I only chirped street tires into 3rd.
    I go freaking sideways.

    Between the clutch, the added power, and the fact that tires wear down it makes sense.
