    you'll get the idea

    drag radials are good because they grab but wont tear out the rearend from under you.
    Just so you know that rear end is on borrowed time w/ a stall and cam know it embrace it go bigger when the time comes.

    3.73's make traction worse(i'd still do the same) when that 10 bolt goes you going 9" or 12 bolt?

    Just a stall would leave her behind get those tires man it's fun for a awhile, but all it takes is a cold night and a bad patch of road.

    I can tell you 1000% it's the tires, yes, 1000%. I couldn't get traction with those tires on my old firebird, stock auto with the 3.8 and 3.42 rear. A great tire for a budget is the Sumitomo HTR Z, I recently got a set from tire rack for $88 each, the treadwear is only 160, which makes for great traction. In all honesty though, you need drag radials if you want to put your power down. And find out what speed that stall is, it could rip your rear end up like a manual.

    i had the same problem with the tires that was on my car when i got it.
    then i put these on.
    these things rock,like driving on friggin glue,also great in the rain and no noise at all.

Had it fixed professionally new bearings and then 5k miles and new bearings again to make sure there wasn't more serious issues there all checked out fine though thankfully... or did you just mean rear end bye bye as in no car control
    bye bye as in if its the stock 10 bolt rear and you get good sticky tires one good launch could blow the rear apart......then you can put a 9" or 12bolt under it that will hold the power
