No, no traction issues. Believe it or not, I run 45 PSI., at all 4 corners.
As I recall, we have had the discussion about torque braking on the launch, many times.

I have not seen a quicker 60ft. time from a stock 2011 QC on 20's, period.
Drag racing is old hat to me, I have been doing it 40+ years. Hundereds of 9,10, & 11 sec. passes under the belt. If my truck were pulling timing as many claim, it would not run the #'s. Trust me, I have experimented launching it, and this has proven to be the best method......the #'s prove it out.

Carry on.
