What kinda of tires did you decide to go with and are you going to use the stock rims. I will be buying tires next!

For the street, I think I'm going to get some Custom Made 19" wheels for the rear so I can put some 345 Goodyear Supercar F1, 18s for the front. For the track I have a set of the MT 315/30/18s ET streets from Lethal so I will get some Rims made to look like the Street rims. That's still a work in progress.

What was the number one mod that allowed you to have such good traction on stock tires? was it upper control arms, lower control arms, driveshaft or what?

I would have to say the DS. Drive line shutter almost disappeared completely. That was the first Drive line mod I made. The U&LCAs almost made no difference.

What you are experiencing is Drive Line Shutter.

I got in on the group but on this site. The Shaft was ordered from Mid Coast Performance. It’s got a sticker on it that says Dynamic Balancing and Repair, 636.578.5306

I don't mean to disagree with Mobeydick, but I and several others have experienced the wheel hop you are seeing. I changed the LCAs already and I thought I had gotten rid of all of it (but didn't), but the guys that changed both the upper and lower control arms mostly say it gets it all. Try doing a search on wheel hop and you should get some good information.

I will have to admit I have changed more components than most(but not all) and the 2 things that rid the dreaded wheel hop are the UCA and LCA.I did change the drive shaft due to the increased HP.If you started modding this car change the driveshaft.

I understand now. Been there done that! When hitting the clutch you are tapping the brake with them mombo boots. That is what it looked like to me but wasnt sure.
