Default TRACTION! How do you guys do it.....

When I Was boosting 4, I would tak eoff in first, then at like 5mph, I would be able to just floor it, and spin them....spin them....grab second and spin them...and spin them... then get third gear scratch...Then I see videos of people boosting 15 or 10 and such and not even a screetch. Is it tuning????????

it is a 5.5 or 6 inch wheel. you might fit 205's but it wont seal right. get some real wheels. or get some slicks on those daisys at 195 it should hold alot better. I recomend rotas, kosie t1's, rpf1's, sportmaxxes, etc see what you can afford and like. it will dramatically improve the handling.

Replace your boost gauge. I didn't break loose in first till 10psi and I didn't break loose in second untill 14psi, unless I dump the clutch hard. Are you really tearing it up like that on only 4psi? I want your engine. :gay:

for what it's worth, a hard launch even at my puny 9 psi will spin the tires.
