    with traction issues

    I want to know what i can do to get better traction at the track as well as while i'm street racing (light to light).. I am about to get some 3.73's installed and I have heard that i will lose quite a bit of traction. I have 18 rims in the rear and 17 in the front so i think lowering it is out of the question. What other aftermarket parts can i buy that i can install will help me achieve better traction?
    2000 Arctic White trans am, ws6 hood, ws6 air box, slp lid, slp smooth bellows, slp loudmouth exhaust,shift kit, rebuilt trans, LS6 intake, 3.73 gears, Shaner S3 p/p throttle body, and a tune . SFC. C6 ZO6 rims 18" in back 17" in front. Drilled and slotted rotors.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    UMI Performance-any of our sponsors carry them.
    I had one. About 200$ or so + s/h. Very easy to do so. Just unbolt/rebolt. Can probbaly do it with just a car jack but i wouldn't ever trust that when wrenching under the car.

    Consider some boxed lower control arms too. [about 150] also easy to instal

    Subframe Connectors weld in or bolt on then weld them later.

    Well Adjustables are for cutomizable set ups, IMO I would go with a non adjustable, something better than stock without the complications.

    Give Sam Strano a call he'll get you on the right direction.

    are there front and rear boxed lower control arms? If there is front and rears do you suggest getting front and rears and where do i buy a good set from?
