Bob Cowan posted "If you're spinning tires in third gear, there's something wrong with your set up. Wrong tires, too much tire pressure, incorrect corner weight, etc. I'm making about 600hp, and I don't have that problem.
There's no such thing as too much power, only not enough control." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have to agree with Bob about control, you need to work on your set-up if you are spinning tires in 3rd gear. I can stick 850rwhp with no tire spin at all from 2nd gear up. Over 1000rwhp I have to use 3 gear up at full throttle. Drag radials are a good start for a performance car.

2fastCobra, I don't know how you get no tire spin at all in 2nd with 850 rwhp driving on the street. I get tire spin in 2nd on the street with 200 less rwhp. No offense meant, but I bet your leaving tire track marks up close to 100 mph at that power level, not that you're not accelerating like a banshee the whole time. Cheers.

Thomas

Thomas, have you added the Competition engineering Anti-Roll Bars to your car yet? Competition Engineering : Product : ANTI-ROLL BARS They are great at helping traction. Along with big drag radials these things will stick your car to the pavement. The Anti-Roll bar was the best thing I have done for my car to aid traction. When I was trying to do a burn out for the photographer at the magazine photo-shoot, my line lock just locked up my front tires and pushed the car all over the place. When I tried dumping the clutch the front tires would just try to lift or just push the car around faster with my front tires locked up. We finally let the tires cool down and put lots of water on the ground just to do a burnout. Now, on cold mornings with cold tires I have problems holding second gear without spinning.

Hi Jeff (2 fast)

Do you keep the anti-roll bar connected when driving it on the street?
And if so how does it affect handling ,brakeing etc.

Any idea which Drag Radials for the street that work well with a stick? 275/40-17's would be the size.

Putting together a normally asperated 347 that I hope puts out near 1/2 the hp you do.

Brian

he is probably spinning the tires, just spinning nice and straight. A lot of times I don't think my car is spinning because the rear end is nice and straight and it feels like I am in a catapult. I look back t the road and I can see long light black marks. The tires were spinning "a little"...

No offense meant to 2fast, imo, he's just accelerating but leaving tire tracks nonetheless. I remember him stating in another thread he was only getting 1,000 miles from his drag radials, that tells me he is spinning. I easily got 7k+ miles from the same tires. I've seen multiple low 8 second cars going down the 1/4 mile strip leaving tire tracks nearly half the way. Cheers.

Qwik 1, the anti-roll bar is never disconnected, it has a little play in it and doesn't negatively affect the ride. The only time you can tell it's there is when the rear end starts to squat down or when cornering hard. I like the Mickey Thompson drag radials best but Nittos work well also. Thomas, I don't know how you get such good mileage out of your drag radials. Now, I don't ever let my tires get down to the wear bars in the tires, they just don't look good after that. The Nittos lasted a little longer by a few hundred miles but just didn't hold as well for me. My 740rwhp Mustang would only get 2000-3000 miles but I also used it for some normal driving. When I drive the FFR, I only drive slow to leave the neighborhood then it's 80 percent or more throttle until it's parked. I live out in the county near Moody Air Force Base, and once I hit the main road I can drive 5 or 6 miles in any direction on back roads. So far I have had 70 plus brave riders in the FFR. I bet that's why I only get about 5-6 miles to the gallon.

2fastcobra, this video shows what i'm guessing your car looks like going thru the gears. Notice on the 1st pass (outside view) he's laying down rubber on the strip the 1st 3 gears but accelerating like crazy. Similiar power to weight ratio as your car. Cheers.

that is almost hard to believe someone can shift a car that fast, with that much power, and stay in control. I wonder why he doesn't have a G force clutch less v box. How much the engine/boost drops off between shifts, I'm sure he can shave off some time.
