I feel like our cars will still squeak second unless some serious suspension mods are done. Isn't that the fun in another a GT/RWD vehicle? Lol. Tq is fun.. Enjoy it don't hate it

still bad traction

To a certain extent yeah it prolly would help. But it would also hurt your performance because the added weight. Why do you not expect to fishtail in second with a GT? I mean.. My 99 v6 did it lol. I don't understand the logic behind this. I have a feeling that a lot of people would say "learn to drive" if you already have the right mods but continue to scratch second when you're not wanting to.

Better tires dude. General UHP is just a street radial and that 35 sidewall isn't helping either.

Yeah after I done my suspension it put it straight down no fishtailing or anything I also have drag radials. So yes you need a better tire.
