no traction

I have a 2011 GT M6 with 3.73 rear end 19" Perelli's. I get beat from almost every light. Plenty of HP just no traction. What's a good replacement tire?

Get some Nitto DRs (Drag Radials), and learn how to launch

It's hard to hold it down in 2nd gear. I don't think launch is the problem.

Should learn how to race then. I can launch just fine with traction on or off with barely any spin

LOL....How about talking about racing on a controlled track. Treat street racing like Fight Club.

The first rule of Fight Club.....

Yes yes yes back to traction. My bad I just get mad when everyone has to be a cop. But other than just getting some practice and experience with your car I would look into some lower control arms. I replaced mine and I noticed there was a big difference putting the power down to both tires evenly rather than loading up on the right rear tire. Still get wheel spin but it hooks back up much quicker on the track and the street with out compromising the ride quality.

You should come visit Florida in late spring/early summer! Around midday it's common to hit 90+ degrees at 100% humidity! It's something you never get used to, you just learn to deal with lol

I've had people tell me it is like taking a shower in the morning and never drying off. You always feel wet.

I've been told it isn't bad here in Ohio by people from the very southern east coast. I hate it here, couldn't imagine living there.

"... beat from almost every light..."

I just got that you're talking about the public roads. Here I thought you were talking about the strip.

If you're getting beat from every light that means that someone involved is driving recklessly and as though they're entitled to do so. We're all guilty of it, from time to time.

That said, I can't help you.

Now, if you were asking about launches at the strip, I may be able to offer a little advice.

Keep in mind that most States/Provinces in North America have rules, on the books, which can be used to bust you for accelerating too fast even if you don't break the posted limit.

Good luck and remember; drive with your toes and your heels. That is all.

(Well, don't DRIVE with your toes or heels, but work the pedals with 'em. If you're using your feet to drive I think there are probably bigger issues.)

It's called Exhibition Of Speed!.. You don't have to be clocked, or even hit the speed limit to get busted!..

And if your actually driving with your feet ill just call you Fred Flintstone!.. Lol

Well that feeling comes mostly from how much you are sweating. It only takes a couple minutes of standing outside in that weather to get you drenched. The worst part about it is how thick it makes the air. It's hard to breathe. Deep breaths don't feel like deep breaths. It's crazy

You should try it up here.

You feel soaked because you are... because it's always raining.

Ahh, life on the Wet Coast.

And still, I drive a Stang. Go figure.
