launchs in a camaro...
do they make a strut that is like a 90/10 drag shock for these 98-02 camaro's? i think they'd help out on my car. cuz i put some DR's on it to try and played around on the street but it still doesnt hook that good. or do DRs just hook on a track. ive noticed in alot of vids of these camaros the front ends really pull up and they hook good. mines doesnt it just stays pretty much level and blows the tires off of it. even if i feather the gas to try to get it to hook. aby body got any ideas.?

What PSI do you have the tires and what tires are you using?

You need at a minimal:
-lower pressure in your tires. 25psi is too high. try 18 to start
-lower control arm relocation brackets to plant more pressure to your rear tire in a downward motion (against the pavement).
I have the Nitto 555R DR's in a 275. I just drove my car for the first time since getting my Procharger installed and my car hooks hard on the street, even through first gear when I'm making full boost at 500rwhp.
Hooking up is accomplished through weight transfer and suspension set-up.
You should be able to hook decent with those NT05R's.
Try holding the RPM at around 2K and feather the clutch out at the same time you're punching the gas.It's stock.

Being lowered is hurting you in several ways...
First, your pinion angle is now not correct. This is set by your torque arm. Since you still have the stock torque arm, you should really get an aftermarket adjustable. This is hurting your traction.
Being lowered also changed your suspension geometry. Your instant center needs to be corrected (LCA relocation fixes this).
You definitely want to be able to transfer weight to the rear. A torque arm really helps with this as well as LCA's and RLCA brackets.
