To much traction

I recently just replaced my gears to 3.55.I also replaced the lower control arms
gt500 ones.No matter how hard I try,I can't get rear tires to really break loose.
This is with Traction control and advance trac off.Anyone else have this same problem?
Damn car hooks up to well.

Traction is a good thing. I have none with the factory 235/18's. I hope the 255's will hook better, i'll be getting at the end of summer .

Well, not to be an a$$ but your problem is not too much traction, it's not enough power. Get that tune on there and you will be complaining with the rest of us lol.... Put some new gears and you will be cursing your way through tire spin daily lol

Buy some X10 in the rear like a 18X10 or 19X10 whatever ur size just get at least a 10' in the rear so u can fit some larger tires out back.

No,I have already put in the 3.55 gears.I guess i'm am lucky,the factory
tires don't even like to spin much when it's wet.Soon as winters over,
Im getting a tuner and cai.I just wanted to wait to get a few miles on
the engine before I did this.
