are you running any type of traction bars like caltracs or slappers?

chefred112 07-19-2013 11:54 AM

altho by lookin at the vids, traction bars won't help either...a nice problem to have :)

Lol, just spring clamps. Sucks man, I got smoked by a 01 cobra that I beat at the track a week before because I break loose like crazy at 20-25 mph!! At a 50 roll we sit door to door till about 115-120 and I shut it down. At the track I had him by 2 lengths or so. Of course I had my radials and short belt on then......

You can also try an adjustable pinion snubber for cheaper. Set it up two inches or so from the chassis if you have time to crawl under your truck before the race. Or if you don't haul heavy loads you can just keep it at that setting. It will throw the weight down on your rear and pick up the front end when it bottoms out against the frame. Much easier and cheaper than traction bars if you can't afford it and it works just as good.

Just order drop shocks for the front and adjustable rancho shocks for the rears to go along with the 2/4.5 drop kit I have on the floor right now! They might help a little bit but we shall see
This is how it sits now, ill get a after video when I get it all installed

Must mean something good , I guess? Question for you. Have you ever used a pinion snubber before. Some of the adds selling them are saying they help prevent twisting of the rearend yadda yadda and that's BS. They do one thing only if it works and that's improve traction by throwing weight down on your rearend. Your front end comes up and your rear squats. When the rear squats the body bottoms out and squats on the rubber mount forcing weight down on your tires. You don't think this will help you any? Just curious to your thoughts about them ...they're cheap fix for loose rearends. Hell you can put a block of wood on top your pinion housing to test it if you're worried about it not working. Just leave enough clearance, inch and one half to two inche from the body/frame and try it. Whether it helps or not, I bet it will throw some much need weight on the tires.
