when the car launches, and the front end comes down hard the rear tires break loose and i need to modulate the throttle to get her back in line

i have stock springs and shocks and the sway bar is removed

how can i battle the tire spin for now, untill i find the cash for drag springs and adjustable shocks???

should i reinstall the sway bar??

Even if you went old school and got some 90/10 shocks on front and 50/50 on rear, you will notice a difference

Thanks Reese.

vpap- like I told you in your other thread, you need to slip the clutch instead of side stepping it. Drag radials don't like to be shocked on the launch.

Let me know when you're ready to upgrade the suspension and I'll hook you up.
