Yeah, I got really frustrated by the wheel spin in my 4.6 the first and only time I took it to the drag strip, haven't been back since. Would like to try it again someday, but need to avoid that "tire slime" thing. I can only imagine that it would be a lot worse with 100 more HP.

I have no problem with missing 4th, though 3rd can be a bit of a challenge . . . but I have a completely different transmission, so what do I know.

I have shifted my attention to road track ; this sounds like a lot more fun and a more rounded driving experience. The only problem is, road tracks are few and far between . . . . but a new one just opened up about 10 minutes from my house! I have a feeling this is going to get expensive . . . . Auto-cross is more common so might be a good alternative.
