Re: traction

Why not launch in 4wd unless you are talking on the street?

Re: traction

If it's on the street, then there's not much you can do. It's not practical to hop out of the truck and air down the tires, and I'm pretty sure that your state would frown on driving around with slicks on the back end all the time. So it's either 4wd, or try to control 2wd wheel spin with your right foot.

For a street race? It wouldn't be worth the expense just to show someone up at the stoplight. If a race is that important, you'd be better off putting it in 4wd.

Re: traction

Don't do boosted launches... I can't get mine to hook with even 10 psi of boost. Try just flooring it and feathering the throttle if you spin too bad...
