Need Help With Wheel Spin
I'm not sure what I may need to address here and would like to get the most bang for my buck. I have an engine with a few bolt on's, headers, ect... a mail order tune and 3.46's. I'm only putting maybe 355 HP out but the wheel spin makes it seem like I have 450 HP under there. I tend to spin more than expected off hard lauches and shifting into second gear. I crawled under to see if the car had relocation brackets and sure enough did. It does not have SFC's and all the control arms and panhard ect under the rear is all stock. Is there one or two things that I could address that might be the culpret of all this wheel spin? Also I'm running goodyear F1's in the back size 285 30 R19. Tires may be some of it but doesn't seem like this could be all the problem. Thanks in advance for any insite to this.

drag radials..........will make all the difference.

I would like to keep the look I have with the tires I have. Also seems like these tires should stick better than they are. Are stock LCA's that subpar that new beefer one's would help?

you can either look fast or go fast.....if you want to go fast you're gonna need drag radials. LCA's and relocation brackets will make a little difference but you're still going to spin.....drag radials at your power level you'll have to try and make it spin.

Agreed with Orion.
With that said, the suspension components that make the most impact on better traction are: torque arm, lower control arms, and lower control arm relocation brackets.
If it's any consolation...I had my stock Goodyears on the car with 330/342 going to the ground and I could roast the tires shifting into 3rd gear.
I now have the same exact suspension set-up, have added a Procharger making 500rwhp, and have drag radials on the car. I cannot even get a bark or chirp when I shift into 2nd at WOT.
Tires are your best resource for traction.
Just note that with added traction comes more stress on your drive-train, and in specific, your 10 bolt.It's stock.

Thanks guys. I will start looking into those then. My next concern was with the 10 bolt as you said.
