So I go to the track to see how fast I can run... I have my MT ET Street Radials on my stock rims and I rev it to 4500 dump the clutch and at first both tires were spinning for all of 1 second then the driver side rear just stops and I do a one wheel burnout... What gives?!?!?

You need a limited slip rear end. Due to the rotation of your driveshaft, the right (passenger) side of the axle lifts slightly which with a standard rear end allows all power to go to the wheel that has the least traction resulting in the single tire burnout. Some cars even have a stiffer spring on the right rear for example the late '60s, early '70s Dodge/Plymouth cars with a 426 Hemi had an additional leaf spring on the right side to help prevent the right side lifting even though they did have limited slip rear ends.

Trac-Loc can't handle the tire bite and the car lifts and unloads one of the tires and the Trac-Loc just not made to handle that car weight and horsepower level. Only solution is a better Locker.
