Shifting tips?

Noob question I know, but I have to learn sometime, right? So whenever I'm doing a pull I tend to spin my tires a lot when shifting to second, so I was wondering, how do I not do that? I've done it a small hand few of times, but I don't know how I did it. I have Falken Azeni 275s on the back and the car is bone stock except exhaust. Thanks!

Replace the rear lower control arms, it makes a huge difference with wheel hop and spinning tires.

If you're slipping the tires from 1st to 2nd...You're shifting well. Chirping the tires is a good thing. I replaced my LCAs and my wheelhop is still bad.

It won't eliminate it, but should help a lot. What other mods do you have?

They're not chirping though, they full on spin, sometimes causing the rear end to slide all about.

Sorry they don't show up on my iPad for some reason. You're fighting the 4.10's, wider tires or drag slicks is probably the solution.

When shifting into second and the clutch is pushed in don't give as much gas as you start to release the clutch, should be more smooth
